The benefits of Ultra-Fresh in your allergy free mattress

What is Ultra-Fresh?

Ultra-Fresh in polyurethane foam is used to provide enduring freshness properties to the foam by keeping it clean of potential growth of mould, fungi and bacteria. By doing so Ultra-Fresh prevents the habitation of house dust mites.

Why use Ultra-Fresh?

Ultra-Fresh is used by JellyFish Bedding in our Dunlop Foams because it has demonstrated that it assists people who suffer allergic or asthmatic responses to fungal and dust mite allergen. It is stable and non-volatile and used in minute amounts to ensure it poses no issue to people who suffer chemical hypersensitivity but still effective against microorganisms.

How we use Ultra-Fresh

Ultra-Fresh is incorporated into the foam in very small amounts. It is a combination of approved ingredients – Thiabendazole (Ultra-Fresh PH-1) a food, pharmaceutical and therapeutic approved ingredient (oral medications and skin creams) and a quaternary ammonium compound; the active ingredient used in such things as antibacterial hand soaps and food surface sanitising systems. The combination is added to the matrix at approximately 500ppm.
The actives are non-volatile – that is, they do not release vapor or compounds from the pu foam, they are tightly bound within the polymer matrix and designed to remain so whilst the polyurethane foam is in normal use.
Polyurethane Foam is produced through chemical reaction, Ultra-Fresh is one of the smallest ingredients in the recipe, it works statically, it does not need to release itself from the polymer matrix to work.

How we test Ultra-Fresh

In independent scientific testing using internationally recognised testing methods, Ultra-Fresh has proven to reduce dust mite populations in a JellyFish Mattress by Dunlop Foams polyurethane foam mattress by 99.6% – this is achieved through the cleanliness properties of the foam. House dust mites require the presence of mould and fungi to assist in digestion of food sources, removing these food sources creates an environment that can not support dust mites.
