Latex International has developed Controlled Thermal Reaction (CTR) Latex, a patent pending formulation of latex that does not require a special FR solution. The new latex will be available in September and shown in the company’s showroom at the fall High Point Market.
“This product was developed following months of research and conversations with our customers,” said Latex International President and CEO Dave Fisher. “Controlled Thermal Reaction Latex works with manufacturers existing FR solution to reduce the number of FR SKUs, save money and enhance the feel of their latex mattresses.”
Made at the company’s factory in Connecticut, Controlled Thermal Reaction Latex can be made several ways and is available in Talalay Process Latex, Dunlop Process Latex, Talatech Formulation, and 100% All Natural Formulation. The technology is an industry first, providing manufacturers with multiple benefits in one cutting-edge component. This special formulation now allows manufacturers to incorporate less expensive inline FR solution to its latex mattresses.
“Our future success in the component industry revolves around the fact that we are enhancing our quality and continuing to be innovative and introduce new latex technologies,” Fisher explained. “Controlled Thermal Reaction Latex is a game-changing material which we believe will help us build the already growing latex category. This is the most important new latex solution brought to the market in the last 25 years and it fills a need for our customers. In addition to helping manufacturers build better feeling beds, Controlled Thermal Reaction Latex will increase their profitability.”
