100% synthetic latex 23 Jan 2013 23:56 #2

Hi hunttr,

I think post #2 here (and the links it contains) and post #2 here should help.

All the evidence points to synthetic SBR not being as durable as natural or a blend and it certainly doesn't perform as well as natural or blended latex either. It is still a "relatively" high quality material though compared to other types of foam (such as polyfoam). It would be my last choice in terms of latex though ... especially because there are better and relatively low cost versions of latex that I would choose instead.

So the "black and white" answer would be that IMO ... no it isn't as durable and it doesn't perform as well either. This doesn't mean it's "bad" ... just that it's not as good in quality, value, or performance terms as better quality latex.
