Different Size Pin Holes in Talalay 04 Oct 2015 10:41 #1

Hi Phoenix,
I have seen 100% Natural Rubber Talalay latex cores with different size pin holes, but the same ILD rating (32). They are said to both be from Radium in the Netherlands.
It seems like the latex cores that have bigger holes would make for a weaker slab of latex.
Would there be any difference in durability or feel?
Thanks!

Larger or smaller pincores wouldn't make a difference in durability and if the type and blend and ILD of the latex is the same then it would be the same in terms of "feel" as well.

Do you know why Radium makes these 2 different pin cores?
Seems like the larger holes would have less latex and cost less.
Thanks,
Gail

Assuming that both of them are the same ILD range and the same type and blend of Talalay ( see here ) ... they are probably just using different molds. With Talalay the molds are only partially filled and then the vacuum process fills the mold when it is closed so the amount and density of the latex would be the same within their normal variation.
