I'm interested in what you find out because it's a big gap between 19ILD and 28ILD so it would be nice to source the 24ILD to allow more flexibility when designing DIY setups.


called just about everyone on the vendor list, and Henry from Flexus is top tier! he's going to add a blended 24ILD to his next order

he's going to confirm with his sales rep that Talalay Global is still making it/availability, but sometime mid-end of next week he's putting in his next order

i'll follow up here if there are any issues he reports, fingers crossed


Can I assume this will be a 3" blended talalay layer?

Would be a great source if Flexus was willing to go the extra mile to help out customers like that.

If flexus is currently using talalay global then I'd like to know what ships for their 20ILD latex on their website because the talalay website shows 19 and 24 but not 20
www.talalayglobal.com/products/mattress-cores/

And Radium natural talalay is 17.5/18 (N5) and 22.5/23 (N6S) so if flexus is currently using radium then is it the N5 or the N6S?

I know these ILD numbers are +/- 2.5 but 17.5 vs 22.5 avg might make a difference, even if only small.

often times i see them say 19/20 interchangeably, could just be a typo, might want to reach out to henry at flexus and ask him

it's 19ild blended from TG. 19 is the target ild with the normal range of +/-2. For now they are not ordering from Radium because of shipping delays. Despite what the website says, If you want natural talalay you need to contact them and special request.

Good to know. Last I could find flexus was using Radium due to pandemic supply chain issues but that was April 2020 and so I sent flexus a message last week asking for specifics about where they sourced and the specific ILD/range but I never heard back.

from April 2020 www.themattressunderground.com/mattress-forum/index/flexus-f/22887-100-natural-talalay-global-talalay-radium-or-both#84653:

Hello,

We usually source our natural Talalay from both companies. But, under the current Covid-19 situation we are only sourcing from Radium at the moment. We currently have available 22 ILD, 28 ILD, and 36 ILD in the Radium Talalay.

How'd you find out flexus is shipping blended and not natural? That's disappointing, especially as the flexus website clearly says "100% Natural Talalay and GOLS Certified Organic Dunlop."

That was accurate in 2020. At present but the backlog in the ports has made importing Radium a logistical a headache so TG is the primary source. At least that's what I was told.

I figured it out when checking the product code stamped on the latex. The dunlop was 100% natural though. I don't mind blended talalay but I do wish the website had the correct info. On the flip side, when I was having trouble with my mattress, flexus allowed me to exchange a layer twice without additional cost, which I am grateful for.

lantern71, hope you don't mind me asking.
Did the tag on the blended latex you received have a prefix of SMT?
