Tempur-Pedic International, Inc. was founded in 1992 in Kentucky and led the way as the founders of foam beds. Tempur-Pedic is known worldwide for its wide range of premium luxury mattresses, and also for its special product—memory foam.
This is basically a polyurethane based foam which reacts to both pressure and temperature and allows the sleeper’s body to sink into the mattress thereby giving them great sleep. Tempur-Pedic mattresses are used all over the world by people who choose to value their sleep and prefer their moment of comfort to be truly comfortable. In this article, we tell you all about these mattresses.
How does memory foam work?
Unlike most luxury mattresses which are fitted with steel coil springs covered with upholstery, Tempur-Pedic makes their mattresses with memory foam. These mattresses are made of 3 different layers- memory foam, followed by the support core, and then the cover. The foam comprises of the top layer which is then fitted into a cover and zipped, making the cleaning process relatively easier. While memory foam is mostly comprised of polyurethane and other chemicals, Tempur-Pedic Mattresses are also made of natural foam. It also has a special kind of gel infused memory foam which helps to remove the heat stored within the mattress.

Luxury mattresses made by Tempur-Pedic are available in three different varieties. The first is the Tempur Contour mattress, which is a firm and contoured mattress. The second type is the Tempur Cloud which is extremely soft and supportive of body structures, and lastly the Tempur Flex which is one of the most flexible mattresses you can find and is quite bouncy. Tempur-Pedic Mattresses are also available in hybrid types comprising of a mix of memory foam along with air and springs.
