The difference between a naturally made latex can make it a world of difference to them. That’s not to say it’s going to make a world of difference in terms of how it feels or how performs over time but we think it’s a meaningful distinction because of how important that particular criteria and preference for a natural material can be for some people. So, for those are some of the things that you want to be thinking about when you’re choosing latex and just some terminologies to be aware of as you’re as you’re shopping for a latex manager. Okay So, if you’ve gotten to this point in the video, congratulations because you now have your Bachelor’s in latex. We’re going to go to grad school and any grad school we’re going to learn about the two things that you’re most likely to come across in your deepest rockiest researching of latex mattresses. The cool thing of ild about density when it comes to latex is that they’re very closely related. In fact, they’re almost one in the same thing. I’ll explain what I mean by that second, but after I explain what they are in the case of ild this is a term that stands for indentation load deflection. Basically, it’s a fancy way of saying how hard or soft is the latex they measure into Tatian load deflection. This is true of any foam not just latex by pressing down on it and seeing essentially how much force it takes to press it down at a certain amount. Then they give that a number of terms of pounds basically, learn more on simplyrest.com.

So, with latex if you’re talking about ild of maybe 15 or so, that’s pretty soft. If you’re talking about ild of 30 something that’s getting pretty hard, much harder and that’s basically kind of how ILD works. Now, the reason I say that the density and ild are what are very similar when it comes to latex is because the way you control ild value is very crucial which means effectively how much it weighs per cubic foot how much and how many latex particles are in there? So, the more latex particles that are in there the firmer will be less softness and so basically high density. You can have super soft foam that’s very dense and you can have super firm and hard foam that is not at all dense. But latex, the kind of the key way that they control density is not exactly 141 but it is that you can think of it as being very similar so that’s ild density. Now you’ve got your PhD as latex. Congratulations.
