Material and Construction
The ExceptionalSheets Rayon from Bamboo Mattress Pad has been constructed out of Rayon from bamboo, polyester, cotton a well as spandex. The cover of this mattress pad is made out of rayon from bamboo. The mattress pad is filled with a down alternative called RevoLoft Cluster Fiber. Bamboo rayon is a fiber which is widely used in the home product industry to produce either knit or weave textile fabrics. The source of this fiber is the bamboo plant. It is an incredibly fast-growing plant, and there are some species of bamboo which are known to grow more than a meter or even two in a single day. The bamboo plant has got a very complex root system. This system does not require it to be replanted after its harvest. The plant has the capability to grow back from its roots. From the point of view of ecology and sustainability, this is something incredible. The bamboo plant is also naturally anti-bacterial, and for this reason, there is no need to use pesticide in supporting it to grow. In short, the bamboo plant is a super quick-growing weed, and it does not require the use of either fertilizer or pesticides. It has got the capacity to grow all by itself thereby, making replanting unnecessary.
The bamboo plant does not make fiber on its own. This is quite unlike cotton. Bamboo thread needs to be produced from the plant, and there are two ways this can be done. In either of these two cases, the bamboo has to be dissolved as a first step. The first method is quite historical, and it involves mechanically processing the bamboo fiber. The bamboo is dissolved in natural enzymes, and thus fiber is produced. The bamboo fabric which is produced this way is very tough, and for this reason, it does not have a lot of applications for the textile industry. It is the second type of fabric produced by the second method which is more relevant to the textile and bedding industry. The modern bamboo rayon fabric is the one which is produced by the second method. It has got just the right structure and texture which is highly suitable for use in beddings and mattress related products like this mattress pad. It is a soft fabric and has got anti-bacterial properties. It is also temperature regulating and is very stable. It has got a lot of advantages and benefits which make it the ideal fabric to use in this mattress topper. Bamboo fiber materials are in trend these days in the bedding industry and to a high degree in the fashion industry as well. This second method of production which yields the bamboo rayon fabric had initially been developed in the 1980s. This method is now the most widely used way to provide bamboo rayon fabric to the textile industry. In this method, the bamboo is first macerated in a basic or alkaline solution. This allows the bamboo to dissolve all of its cellulose. This solution is then subjected to very high pressure and run through a nozzle. This procedure converts the bamboo into a fiber. The alkaline solution remnants are then removed as a part of the production process. The fiber that is obtained in the end is the bamboo rayon fiber, and it has got a very different molecular structure.
Bamboo is an organic product as it does not require herbicides to grow as described earlier. It is also very fast growing and is highly sustainable. As far as the production process is concerned, it does use some chemicals. However, these are aptly removed from the bamboo rayon fiber after the process has finished. It is for this reason that many bamboo rayon products carry certification for both the fiber as well as the material. The certification ensures that the fiber does not contain any residual chemicals which might cause harm to skin, etc. Some bamboo rayon products are so safe and secure that they can even be used by children under three years of age. As the process is very important in terms of how the bamboo rayon fiber is obtained in factories through the production process, it is therefore important to rely on factories that produce quality fiber and abide by the law in terms of limits, etc. Like the cover of this mattress pad is made out of bamboo rayon fiber, it is hypoallergenic, anti-bacterial, thermo-regulating, and quite soft.
The Revolt cluster Fiber is known to do well when it comes to filling into corners. It tends to stay in the corners and thus maintains the usability and integrity of the mattress pad true to its class and quality. Thus, the sleeper does not have to face the issue of getting whimpy corners. The product is made in the United States and is considered to be a very high-quality material. The Revolt cluster Fiber is also very good for those people who have allergy-related issues. The Revolt cluster Fiber has got a high bounce as well ss it is highly durable too. It is a siliconized polyester fiber meaning that the polyester fiber has been aptly coated with silicone. It has the capability to replicate the texture of duck down as well as the goose down and at the same time, it does not produce ant allergies. Thus, the greatest benefit which this lofty down alternative provides is its hypoallergenic nature.
The backing in this mattress pad is made out of 30% cotton and 70% polyester. Both of these products are breathable and allow an air current through them, which wicks away moisture and sweat. The body heat is also drawn away from the body as well as the mattress and the mattress pad. This allows for the mattress to be airy, cool and soft. The skirt of the mattress pad is made out of 76% polyester, 16% nylon as well as 8% Spandex. The addition of spandex makes the skirt very elastic. This is an essential requirement for the mattress pad as it is fitted to mattress and needs to be very elastic in the skirting. While the addition of nylon to polyester further increases the strength of the material, the addition of spandex ensures ease of use while taking the mattress pad off the mattress or while trying to put it on. The elasticity due to the spandex material enables very and convenient use of the mattress pad.
The hypoallergenic andante-bacterial nature of the materials used in the production of this mattress topper contributes towards its ultimate usefulness in an urban environment. While many traditional types of beddings would allow a host of dust mites and allergens to live ad thrive, this mattress topper would ensure that the top of the mattress remains completely free of bacteria, allergens and dust mites, etc. Dust mites might not carry any harm, but their presence can lead to allergies. With this mattress topper containing anti-bacterial and hypoallergenic materials, the sleeper feels completely assure that he/she is lying down on a bacterium free and allergen-free sleep surface.

Comfort and Ergonomics
The ExceptionalSheets Rayon from Bamboo Mattress Pad is exceptionally comfortable due to both the bamboo rayon cover of the product as well as the polyester fill of poly pellets type material inside the cover. As explained earlier, the bamboo rayon is processed by using a new and innovative method which was developed in the 1980s, and it is not processed mechanically according to the traditional method which uses mechanical compression. As such, the bamboo rayon obtained is not tough but very soft. It can last for a very long time and is certainly very durable. However, it does not feel like a tough material, and therefore, it is highly suitable for use as a cover material for this mattress pad. The sleeper gets to enjoy a very soft feel of the cover material and lies down on it for a perfect night’s rest to wake up fully rejuvenated in the morning to face the next hectic day ahead.
The cover material provides comfort in many other ways besides due to its softness. It is a hypoallergenic and anti-bacterial material. It strongly repels any allergens, bacteria, viruses, and other types of pathogens and thus allows the cover to stay odor-free. The mattress pad remains clean and sanitary as a result of this inherent property of the cover material. This is very good not just for people who have allergy issues but also for those who d not have allergy-related problems. They can always trust the mattress pad to remain hygienic and clean and would give a fresh feeling every time it is used. As for those who have allergy-related issues and who wake up on traditional beds with stuffed noses and skin irritations will find this mattress pad as a true blessing for themselves. They would be able to get a worry-free, allergen-free sleep throughout the night and wake up fully charged and feeling energized with none of the issues they used to face on traditional beds which were prone to accumulating dust mites and allergens. The anti-bacterial nature of the cover is also another very beneficial advantage for all types of sleepers as it will not allow the growth of bacteria and viruses on the surface of the mattress pad and therefore keep the sleep environmental as healthy and fresh as possible.
The inside filling of the mattress pad is of another hypoallergenic and anti-bacterial material. It is also very soft and resembles the real duck down or goose down. However, the greatest advantage here is for those people who have allergy issues with goose or duck down and who are unable to take advantage of the very soft and comfortable feel of these natural products due to this handicap. The Revolt cluster Fiber gives the same feel as the real down and as a perfect down alternative filling provides the opportunity for such allergy-sufferers to get the feel of the real down without getting the allergies associated with them. This filling material is also very good for filling the corners and helps to get rid of whimpy corners as it stays in its place aptly. This is a source of comfort to the sleeper as one does not have bother to try to beat the mattress pad at the corners to even them out. This material does not produce clumps and is very comfortable at the same time. It has got al the advantages that real goose or duck down would deliver but none of their disadvantages.
The mattress pad is also highly breathable due to its cover material, the polyester fill, as well as the backing and the skirting material. The cover and filling materials allow the moisture and sweat to be wicked away by a circulating air current through them. They are supported in this by the backing and the skirting material as they are breathable as well. Thus, the entire mattress pad materials act in unison in this regard allow a very cool and serene sleep environment to be created on top of the mattress which allow the sleeper to fall into a deep and restful sleep all the way to the morning with no discomfort or disturbance due to tossing and turning or heat, etc.
Durability and Warranty
The bamboo rayon material which is used in the mattress pad cover and the Polyester fill which is used for filling to mattress pad to get the required loft are durable materials. They tend to last for a very long time as a result of the bonds between their molecules in the molecular structure of these materials. The materials which are used in the making of the backing and the skirting are also very durable as they consist of materials like cotton, polyester, nylon, and spandex. All of these materials have got incredibly long lives, and they are not easily destructible either. Altogether, the mattress pad consists of very tough, durable and strong materials however, and they are still very soft to feel and touch.
