TOPIC:

Dunlop Latex - Which side faces up/down 06 Apr 2021 02:04 #1

Two variations of the same question regarding dunlop latex:

1) If there is a tag affixed to the side of a dunlop layer, can you rely on its orientation to tell you which side should be facing up versus which side should be facing down?

2) If there is no tag, is there a way to tell which side of the dunlop should be facing up?

There should be no correct way to orient the latex foam if it was manufactured well. Talalay is more consistent than Dunlop but I haven't found either to have what I consider a significant performance difference in either side facing up/down.

to confirm, settling isn't noticeable with modern day dunlop?

Hey latern71,

Good to see you on the forum :) . Hope you and Mattrebuild don't mind my joining the party for a bit.

to confirm, settling isn't noticeable with modern day dunlop?


Generally speaking, manufacturers produce modern day Dunlop latex to be multi-directional as it is not designed to have a different top or bottom, but rather to be used on either side. "Settling" is rarely an issue. On occasion, in the case of a Dunlop core being cut down into thinner layers, there have been issues with the bottom-most layer experiencing slight settling and therefore feeling slightly firmer, but site inspections insure the correct ILDs and specs are observed before the latex leaves the factory. Hope this helps ;) .

Thanks,
Sensei
