Our Production Process

Take a tour of our factory!

Dunlop latex and Talalay latex are two different processes used to make latex foam.

Theptex’ cores are produced using the Dunlop process because it creates more firm, dense, energy-efficient, long-lasting and supportive latex.

Rubber tree and milk

Step 1: Harvesting latex milk

The latex used in our cores is selected from the best farms in Thailand for its foaming capabilities and 100% naturalness.

Step 2: Testing latex milk

The quality of latex milk is rather unpredictable from season to season, just like wine. We therefore need to test the milk in our in-house lab first.
