Rivet is an Amazon brand, and it utilizes Celliant technology to create an instantly responsive 10-inch thick mattress with three layers of foam. This mattress provides a deep and restorative sleep experience and enables very quick sleep; It enables one to sleep for longer and also enables a deep recovery. The mattress includes a latex layer, a memory foam layer, and a support foam base. It also consists of a cover which is made out of a fabric which has been made using Celliant technology. Celliant fabrics provide a myriad benefit to the user and have been produced by their manufacturer who has many top universities of the United States and Canada in its Advisory Board. These include the University of Calgary, the University of California at Irvine, Texas A&M University and Loyola University Chicago.
Materials and Construction
The Rivet Mattress Responsive 3-layer Memory Foam consists of a Celliant fabric cover. It contains a 2-inch LURAcor alt Latex foam layer which is the top layer in the mattress. This layer is responsible for the instant responsiveness which aligns the spine. This layer is instrumental in relieving pressure points as well. The second layer is a 2-inch layer of cushioning memory foam, which creates personalized support as it evenly distributes the weight. The bottom layer is a 6-inch thick, durable foam which acts as the base of the mattress. It is crucial and provides structural integrity.
The cover of this mattress is very special as it is made out of a Celliant fabric. The technology is a very specialized technology which is added to textiles. The United States Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) has determined the products which include this technology as medical devices in their section 201(h) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. As such, these are considered as wellness products. Celliant is accepted as a Class 1 Medical Device in other countries like the European Union, Canada, Australia, New Zealand as well. Other countries are likely to follow suit. Fabrics which contain this technology are the most clinically tested and infrared-optimized products in the entire industry. The technology is the result of inputs and testing by dedicated experts in the fields of biology, physics, medicine, and chemistry.
This technology relates to infra-red rays, which occur naturally just outside the visible spectrum. Infrared light has always been considered as rays that have positive effects on human health. As a vasodilator, its function is to promote blood circulation, cell vitality enhancement, tissue oxygen level enhancement, and body temperature regulation. Doctors use it as a part of their treaent for people who complain of congestive heart failure, high blood pressure, rheumatoid arthritis and muscle tears, etc. The minerals that are used in the Celliant fabric used in the mattress are selected for their thermo-reactive ability. They are instrumental in converting body heat into infrared rays which are radiated back to the body. Under normal circumstances, 60% of the energy from a human body is lost as body heat. This fabric gives back a part of this energy to the body as infrared energy. This gives a lot of health benefits, and it is noteworthy to mention that this energy is a kind of renewable energy.
The Celliant fabrics are produced by first mixing a batch of Celliant master to liquid polyester. This is then extruded in the form of staple fiber. The experts at Celliant have selected 13 naturally occurring and safe thermo-reactive minerals and have blended these into a clinically proven and patented formula to create Celliant. As an example, Silicon Dioxide is used for its energy absorption and reflection; Titanium Dioxide is included as it is a light-absorbing photo-catalyst. Aluminum oxide is included as it increases reflectivity. All of these 13 minerals are ground into powder fiber, which is only 1 micron in size. As a comparison, a human hair is 100 microns thick.
The powder produced is then mixed with Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET), and this creates the Celliant master batch. The spun yarn, as well as filaments, are then sent to fabric makers all over the globe, and thus Celliant consumer products are produced. The fabric used in this mattress is also produced in the same manner. The Celliant. minerals enable the fabric cover of the mattress first to absorb the infrared as well as the visible energy released by the body, and then it is reemitted back to the body. The minerals change the wavelengths of the energy and emit it back to the body. This energy can go through any bedding that is used on top of the mattress.
The 2-inch LURAcor alt (alternative) Latex foam layer is the top layer of the mattress. This is a special kind of foam which provides contouring comfort and dynamic support. However, it does not sacrifice either its resilience or breathability. The foam is smooth and boasts a unique cell structure which creates a ‘bounce back’ to its original shape whenever the weight on it is removed. It delivers responsive and buoyant comfort and is also superior in terms of pressure point relief. Both heat and moisture are not built up in this foam as it is breathable. Thus, LURAcor is an excellent choice for this mattress as it offers a perfect mix of durability, comfort, and breathability. It is a great latex alternative and has got a very high energy return feature. It is also supportive and quite cost-effective as compared to HR foam.
It is produced by Innocor Foam Technologies who have developed this product as a result of extensive Research and Development (R&D). The R&D is not a separate process at this company, but it is fully integrated into the entire manufacturing system. This results in the optimization of reliability as well as efficiency in the company’s production pipeline. The manufacturer of this foam has incorporated many viewpoints over a broad range of key areas. The collaboration and integration of R&D have resulted in the ability of the company to relate the customer benefits and preferences to polymeric innovation, which has resulted in the manufacture of this product. The product has been fully tested at the ISO/IEC 17025 certified manufacturer’s R&D center in Baldwyn, Mississippi. The company has worked on this product in collaboration with customers and the R&D networks all across the United States. This was done to thoroughly assess customer needs before the manufacturing to determine the technological and production methods to meet these needs.
The second layer of foam is a 2-inch memory foam layer. The memory foam layer is used to contour according to the shape of the body and also to relieve pressure points like hips and shoulders. The memory foam also ensures thermal regulation and keeps the temperature and moisture under control. Memory foam gets depressed under the body, and when the weight is removed, the memory foam gradually regains the original shape. This also enables motion isolation, and when one sleep partner gets up from the bed or moves on the mattress, the other sleep partner is not disturbed as the motion is not transferred to the partner. Memory foam also does not allow allergens and dust mites to live inside the mattress, thus making the mattress beneficial for people with allergy issues or asthma, etc. They no longer have to wake up in the morning with stuffed noses and skin irritations.
The third layer in this mattress is a 6-inch support foam base layer. It serves to provide ultimate support to the body, and it does not allow the sleeper to sink into the mattress. The sink created by the memory foam is pushed back by the support foam base, and this way, the level of comfort is enhanced as well. The support foam base is higher density as compared to other foams used in the mattress. Normally, the high-density foam has a density greater than 5 lbs./ft3.This means that the support foam base normally weighs more than 5 pounds for every cubic foot of the support foam.

Comfort & Ergonomics
The greatest level of comfort stems from the upper two layers of foam in this mattress in conjunction with the Celliant. As mentioned earlier, this is a very special and unique technology that utilizes infrared energy to charge up the body with the energy that it absorbs from the body itself. The Celliant fabric cover remits the energy absorbed from the body after its wavelength is changed by the cover. This has many benefits for the body in terms of human health and wellness.
The Celliant fabric cover is instrumental in providing improved blood circulation as well as a higher level of oxygenation for the muscles and the tissue. This enhances performance, recovery, and overall health. The natural and patented blend of the 13 minerals selected for this technology enables the recycling of the body’s energy. The Celliant particles in the fabric cover, which are only 1 micron in size are deeply embedded in the fabric cover in this mattress. The Celliant matrix would not wear off or even wash away. They last as long as the fabric cover lasts. They are part and parcel of the fabric once they are embedded into it. The function is first to absorb body heat and light, and then after changing its wavelength, they emit infrared rays which are absorbed by the body. This infrared energy expands the capillaries in the body, and they start to draw more oxygen in those areas of the body which are close to the Celliant fabric cover or touching it. It has been proven by research that an increase in blood circulation to the tissues and the muscles leas to better athletic performance as well as faster healing and recovery. It also helps to reduce soreness in the body and also balances the temperature of the body. Many clinical trials have been conducted to ascertain the benefits of Celliant technology, and there is documented proof available regarding these trials.
This technology has proven to be a non-invasive technology. There are no direct side effects. However, one must note that this technology uses Celliant particles, which are mixed with polyester. There are no allergies produced by these; however, if someone is allergic to polyester fibers, he/she would be allergic to this fabric as well. Apart from this, since this innovative product came out in 2003, there have been no known or reported allergies associated with this product. No special care for this product is required as the Celliant particles ate deeply embedded into the fabric cover. They are not coated or applied to it. This makes life easier for anyone who uses this mattress as no special care is needed for the fabric cover despite its unique and beneficial properties related to health and wellness.
The comfort and Ergonomics of the mattress are also related to the use of the LURAcor alt (alternative) Latex foam layer and the memory foam layer in the mattress. While the Latex alternative layer causes a bounce back after the weight is removed from it this regaining the shape of the mattress, the memory foam layer helps to do the same as it contours to the shape of the body and is then released gradually back to its original shape. This provides a lot of comforts, and when the base foam layer fully supports these two layers, the comfort level of the mattress is enhanced. The overall result is that the mattress is responsive and relieves pressure points and also enables the muscles and the tissues to absorb more oxygen while at the same time increases the blood circulation. The comfort level, as well as the health ad wellness benefits, are numerous, and the mattress produces a very deep and comfortable sleep experience.
Durability and Warranty
Durability is the result of the high-quality materials used in this mattress. All the foams employed in the Rivet Responsive 3-layer Memory Foam Mattress are CertiPUR-US certified. This shows that they have passed independent third-party laboratory tests for contents and performance. The CertiPUR-US certification ensures that the foams used in this mattress are free from any harmful chemicals such as PBDEs, formaldehyde, phthalates, etc. It also ensures that these foams have emission under control when it comes to Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). Their emissions are well under control, and they are within acceptable limits/ This ensures health and wellness as the quality of the indoor air remain high at the place where this mattress is placed.
The support layer of the mattress also provides strength and durability to the mattress. It is a 6-inch thick layer of higher density foam which acts as a support base for the mattress and provides a push back to the upper layers of foam as well as the body. The higher the density of the foam, the higher is its quality, which leads to enhanced durability as well. Thus, the employment of CertiPUR-US certified foams and the use of the supportive base foam layer enable the mattress to be strong and durable.
The Celliant particles present in the mattress cover are very small. They are only 1 micron in size. However, they are embedded deep into the fabric when the fabric of the cover is produced. They are not coated or applied to the fabric. This means that they would not wear off with time. They cannot even be washed away as they are a part of the fabric now and stay so for as long as the fabric lasts. Thus, there is no need to worry about the Celliant particles coming out of the fabric and the fabric cover losing its durability in terms of its faster recovery and blood circulation enhancing properties. These properties are related to the embedding of the Celliant particles in the fabric cover, and these are permanently embedded. As long as the fabric cover lasts, its health and wellness related properties would last as well.
The durability of the mattress can be enhanced by maintaining it properly. Spot cleaning is the only cleaning option. If some liquid spills and soaks the mattress, a cloth can be used with pressure to ooze it out. No chemicals or bleach should be used. Moreover, electric blankets and heating pads need to be avoided as the heat would disturb the pressure-relieving properties of memory foam. If the mattress is properly maintained and kept on a solid foundation or bed frame which does not allow it to sag, it will last for a long time. The bed frame or the foundation must be able to hold the mattress in such a way that it is not allowed to wobble or slide.
