At this point in time, reality tells us that the mattress recycling industry will indeed go through the normal product life cycle. Those pioneers who with guts and savvy set up the first local mattress recycling facilities will be the ones who initially develop the demand/market. The wait and see folks will monitor the pioneers' progress and when the market becomes lucrative, the wait and see recyclers will jump into the market with newer more technically advanced equipment and drive the price per unit down. Historically, this entrance of more efficient companies into a given market has spelled the end of the pioneer companies who failed to prepare to update their equipment and ignored the low hanging fruit out there which the wait and see companies jump all over when they enter the market.
The major shortcoming of a latex mattress is its high price. You can expect to pay a ton of money for this sort of bed, generally $2,000 or even more. In spite of this, you may buy a $500 mattress that lasts for only several years whereas a latex bed will last much longer, up to 25 years. If you occasionally turn a memory foam mattress it will last about 15 years by comparison.
Latex mattresses do not necessarily have an advantage over memory foam mattresses either. While they can provide excellent support and have greater elasticity than memory foam mattresses do, the have added elasticity that can give them a springy feel as opposed to the firmer feel of memory foam mattresses. More makers of memory foam mattresses are using latex and memory foam together to construct mattresses with higher comfort and support rating. It is important to note that people who are allergic to latex should not sleep on a latex foam mattress or a mattress made with a combination of latex and memory to prevent having serious allergic reactions.
The top layer of a mattress comes in 5 styles. The first is the basic Tight Top; this is the no-frills version. Second, we have Pillow Top; a layer of comfort materials is added on top of the Tight Top. It's attached with gusseted corners that give it a pillow shape. Thirdly, we have the Euro Pillow Top; same as Pillow Top but with more filling. Fourthly, a Euro Top is the same as a Euro Pillow Top but it's not gusseted but attached directly on to the mattress. Lastly, the Box Top is very thick and is also directly attached to the mattress.
