Phoenix:

Have you posted or seen any official ILD specs on the new "blue" series PLB mattresses?

I am specifically looking for the Nature, Nutrition and Beeautiful.

Thanks

Hi toni,

I know the layering on them but not the ILD's of each layer (most are now filled in)

They are supposed to be similar to the old ones in terms of feel so the ILD's may be similar but may not be the same. The Active Fusion fast response comes in slightly different ILD's from the regular Talalay and the 1" base layer on the old models has now been added to the upper layers (the second layer down except in the Pamper where it has been added to the top layer of Active Fusion fast response latex) so ILD's may have changed as well.

NOTE: The ILD's listed have now been confirmed.
Here is what I know ...

(12") World's Best Bed™ AF all latex / Natural Talalay
4" ActiveFusion Fast Natural Talalay 15 ILD
2" Natural Talalay Pressure Relief 24 ILD
6" Natural Talalay Latex Support Core 36 ILD

(12") Beautiful- AF all latex / Natural Talalay
3" ActiveFusion Fast Natural Talalay 15 ILD (NOTE: this was previously listed as 21 ILD which means that I was either given incorrect information or it has changed)
3" Natural Talalay Pressure Relief 24 ILD
6" Natural Talalay Latex Support Core 36 ILD

(11") Nutrition- AF all latex / Natural Talalay
3" ActiveFusion Fast Natural Talalay 27 ILD
2" Natural Talalay Pressure Relief 19 ILD
6" Natural Talalay Latex Support Core 36 ILD

(10") Nature- AF all latex / Natural Talalay
2" ActiveFusion Fast Natural Talalay 21 ILD
2" Natural Talalay Pressure Relief 28 ILD
6" Natural Talalay Latex Support Core 36 ILD

(8") Pamper- AF all latex / NaturalTalalay
2" ActiveFusion Fast Natural Talalay 21 ILD
6" Natural Talalay Latex Support Core 40 ILD

LatexBASE the world's best bed
9" Height
4" Talalay Latex 19 ILD

The specs of the previous version of the PLB line which is still available in some parts of the country are in post #1 here .

NOTE ADDED:
Pure Latex Bliss is now called Pure Talalay Bliss and have introduced a new lineup for 2016 that is very similar to their previous lineup but does have a few differences.

The covers are slightly different. You can see the details in their Q&A here (click "How durable are the fabrics used in Pure Talalay Bliss mattresses?").

(13") World's Best Bed / Natural Talalaynow includes ...
4" Carbon infused Talalay 15 ILD
3" Natural Talalay Pressure Relief 24 ILD
6" Natural Talalay Latex Support Core 36 ILD

(11") Nutrition / Natural Talalay ...now includes ...
3" ActiveFusion Fast Natural Talalay 28 ILD (1 ILD firmer than the previous version which shouldn't be noticeable)
2" Natural Talalay Pressure Relief 19 ILD
6" Natural Talalay Latex Support Core 36 ILD

There is also now an additional model called the Custom Choice which can be used by itself for those that prefer an ultra firm mattress or as a base layer with an additional topper

Custom Choice:
6" Natural Talalay Latex Support Core 40 ILD

All the other specs in their new models are the same.
Note that what PLB calls "natural" Talalay is actually a blend of about 70% synthetic and 30% natural rubber.

New PLB "Blue" Specs 01 Apr 2013 21:17 #4

Hi g1981c,

They have 3 types of toppers.

The "natural" are about 14 ILD.
The Active Fusion fast response are about 15 ILD.
The All natural are N1 which could be anywhere from about 14 - 20 ILD

You can see the ILD range of most of the latex International products on their website here
ADMIN NOTE:Removed 404 page link | Archived Footprint: latexfoam.com/latex-material/components
(Active Fusion is PLB's name for Talalay GL).

The list of topper and component suppliers is in post #4 here . You may need to call a few of them because they don't all list everything they carry on their website but if nobody else carries exactly what you are looking for then SLAB carries all the Latex International products in every ILD and 1", 2", 3" and 6" thicknesses.

Hi g1981c,

I was wondering where you purchased your Talalay GL?

Thanks!

I actually just found the link you provided to Arizona Premium Mattress Co. so please disregard my question since I see that you ordered a Talalay GL Topper.

I recently visited the Health Back Store in the Rockville Maryland area and really like the "Healthy Back Bliss Elegance Pure Latex Mattress". They couldnt provide me much info on the components but I wanted to see if anyone could tell me which model below was equivalent to the Elegance? I am just starting the shopping process so would like to know what components were used so I can compare to mattresses down the line.

If anyone else has any good recommendations in the DC area I would appreciate it. I was planning on making a trip down to the Richmond area to check out the Original Mattress Factory and maybe a quick stop on my next trip up to New York at CozyPure. Any other good ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks

Hi Rosenthal311,

The elegance is 12" of Talalay latex and would be closest to the Beautiful in terms of layering but I don't know the specific details of the layering inside the Healthy Back version.

The better options or possibilities I'm aware of in the DC area are listed in post #2 here .

The Richmond list is in post #5 here .

What's the point/theory of putting a firmer layer on top of a softer layer as in the Nutrition?
