About Us

For 40 years we have been selecting the highest quality and innovative materials from the leading European and Greek producers of mattress components.

 

Unfortunatally, many time the mattress components in the market are…

 

  • “100% Latex” without a trace of natural rubber, no reference to the country of origin and without certifications.
  • Multicolored FOAM without any certification and
  • Filters (felt,keçe) from mashed rags of unknown origin.

 

Our mission is to be the source of organic natural mattresses components.

An example of this, is the exclusive representation in Greece&Cyprus of the

No.1 Latex producer worldwide …

How Latex is made

There are two different production processes of latex. Artilat uses the Dunlop process, our sister company Talalay Global uses the Talalay process. The major difference is what happens in the mould prior to the vulcanisation stage. In the Dunlop process, the moulds are filled to the rim. The difference in Talalay process, is that the mattress core is flash frozen to lock the cell structure in place and to prevent the particles from settling.

STEP 1

The creation of the basic compound of: 100% natural latex, or natural and synthetic latexin varying proportions, additives for the vulcanization process, such as accelerators, stabilizers and antioxidants.

STEP 2

The basic compound is pumped into a blender which mixes the different ingredients. During the same time, the compound is whipped into a foam by adding compressed air.

STEP 3

Once the foam is finished, it gets shaken up one more time in a blender where a gelling additive is added.

STEP 4

The foamy substance is poured, by means of a robotic hose, into aluminium moulds while they move on rails through a closed loop production line.

STEP 5

The filled moulds pass through a vulcanization oven and are exposed to wet steam.

STEP 6

After de-moulding, the mattress cores are washed and dried.

STEP 7

Quality control, the last but certainly not least important step. Although the vulcanization has not yet been completed, the quality of the mattress core is being inspected thoroughly. It takes a few more days before the finished product reaches its final specifications.
