Types of Mattress Fillers

Fillers are the most important parts of the mattress. They depend not only on the rigidity of the product but also on such indicators as the degree of orthopedic, ecology, and hygiene.

Fillers for mattresses can be monolithic, i.e., a single block of any material, and can be composite, layered, consisting of two or more different materials. A large number of possible combinations allows you to create products with different properties.

The material for mattresses is used in a variety of different. All fillers are divided into:

  1. Natural (natural origin);
  2. artificial (synthetic).


Natural fillers

Natural fillers

Coconut coir.

The filler is made from fibers covering the coconut palm’s coconuts: Coconut – absolutely natural material, durable, not afraid of moisture, durable, and eco-friendly.

To form, the slab is impregnated with natural latex, which binds the fibers into a single mass. Used for hard mattresses.

In combination with soft fillers forms a surface of medium rigidity.


Natural latex.

The material is derived from the juice of the rubber plant.

After vulcanization becomes elastic, durable, not getting wet. In addition, latex filler has bactericidal properties, does not cause allergies.

It ventilates itself because it conducts the air well.

Used to form soft surfaces, combined with hard layers forming surfaces of medium rigidity.


Cactus cobra (sisal).

Agave (cactus) is quite coarse.

Does not accumulate foreign smells and moisture, perfectly ventilated.

The plate is formed using latex impregnation.

The sisal filler has a high level of rigidity and strength.



To make such filler, use hair from both the mane and the tail of the horse.

The hair plate is also formed by impregnating with natural latex.

The result is a hard and elastic material with durability, durability, eco-friendly, hygienic, and hypoallergenic.



The filler is hard or medium stiff.

Manufactured by weaving dried seagrass fibers with mesh-base.

Excellent ventilation does not break down from excessive moisture, does not accumulate condensation, has high strength.

Other fillers are distinguished by the presence of a delicate herbal aroma.


Artificial fillers

polyurethane foam.

It is an elastic and elastic polymer material with tiny pores filled with air. The orthopedic industry has been used for a long time and successfully.

The properties of the foam are close to natural latex, so it is often called artificial latex.

It is environmentally friendly, hygienic, does not cause allergies.

It forms a soft or medium hard surface depending on the particular species.



100% polyester non-woven material.

Due to the special structure (vertical styling of spiral fibers and the presence of air cavity inside them) has a high elasticity and at the same time elasticity.

Strong, hypoallergenic, not afraid of moisture.

Hollofyber forms the surface of medium rigidity, and his special brand of hollofyber-hard – rigid.



Stuttofaiber is very close to the hollofaiber but can contain not only artificial but also natural fibers:

  • Cotton,
  • flax
  • Wool,
  • eucalyptus and others.

It may have a low or medium stiffness.


Memoriform (memorix, memolatex). Filler with “memory effect.”

A special type of foam that reacts to the heat of the human body. Catching it, the porous structure of the memorial is compressed, adjusting to the outlines of the body, “remembering” their shape.

There are “prints” that are exactly in line with the body’s contours in the load areas.

Lying on such an anatomical mattress minimally feels the reciprocal pressure of the surface.

When the load is removed, the surface takes on its original appearance.



This medium-hard material can rather be attributed to mixed types of filler.

It is a mixture of coconut fibers with stratuttofaiber fibers.

Ecological, durable, waterproof material does not cause allergies.

Successfully used as cheaper than natural fillers.



Industry produces mattresses with other types of fillers, but their abundance in the article has to be limited to the most famous and common characteristics.
