Adjustable vs. Topper 22 Nov 2021 11:40 #11

Hello Lynn and thanks for reaching out on this! You will feel the split in the topper if there's no longer an inch of wool between yourself and the top layer, so you would almost certainly want us to glue the topper together to be one piece (for king and cal king sizes) or just order the topper as one solid piece of latex for queen size and smaller. Just FYI, we use a non-toxic water-based glue that is Green Guard certified against harmful chemicals and off-gassing. However, it takes 2 business days for that glue to cure.


Thank you so much for your reply! What if we already have the topper as part of an original 9" mattress purchase? Is it possible for us to glue it ourselves without having to ship it back? Also, what if one of us wants to change out his/her glued topper side to another firmness level. Is it possible to cut through the glue and reglue to a new piece? Would you recommend it? Thanks!

Yes you can glue it yourself, and I'll include our instructions on that just below. My advice is to try the mattress with the mattress before you glue the layers, because we wouldn't offer any exchanges or returns on the layer after you glue it yourself. In order to see if your current topper is eligible for return or exchange from us, we would ask that you contact us directly so we can look up your order and get all the details from you. If you glue the layer and in a few years decide you want to cut it, change one half, and re-glue it, my advice would be to cut it right down the glue seam as best you can, then put the side of the layer that was previously glued facing the outside edge of the mattress, so that you're not gluing the same side of that latex layer twice, you'll end up gluing the face that was previously unglued (I hope that made sense!)

When we glue our layers we have to make sure to let them dry for 3 days without moving them, so that’s probably going to be an important part of gluing the layer you have now. We recommend using a foam and fabric spray glue. The glue that we use is Simalfa 309 which is Green Guard certified and it’s only available in cases of 12. Sometimes we use the Enriquez 722 which is also only available in cases of 12. I’ve included a link to another type of glue that you can get in single cans and it’s called Camie 303. The most important thing is that it be a spray glue made specifically for foams and fabrics. Other types of glues can harden too much, allowing you to feel the glue in the topper, or they can look fine for a bit but when someone uses the topper, the part that was glued will compress and then stay compressed, leaving a divot in the topper. As such, I definitely recommend using Camie 303 so that you don’t ruin the topper (honestly my recommendation is just to leave the tear as it is because it really doesn’t hurt anything or affect the feel or longevity of the product). Nonetheless, if you have to glue it, here’s a link you can use to purchase the Camie 303 glue - www.gluegun.com/products/camie-303-foam-and-fabric-spray-adhesive
