Dunlop’s Rapidset Floor & Wall Tile Adhesive gets merchants hot under the collar

With builders’ merchants keen to make sure they are fully stocked up for a sizzling summer, Dunlop Adhesives, the specialist manufacturer of tile adhesives, grouts, finishing and ancillary products, is keen to make the case for its Rapidset Floor & Wall Tile Adhesive. The fast setting, versatile adhesive gives tradesmen the chance to get those tricky tiling jobs out of the way – so they can get out and enjoy the sunshine!

  • When mixed with water, Dunlop’s Rapidset Floor & Wall Tile Adhesive can be used for a wide range of different tiles, including ceramic floor and wall tiles, vitrified tiles and mosaics, quarry tiles, brick slips, and some natural stone
  • In addition, the adhesive can be used on surfaces that include concrete, cements (sand screeds and rendering), existing tiles, asphalt and plasterboard – making it an incredibly useful product for the modern working tradesmen
  • Suitable for both interiors and exteriors, the adhesive is available in 5kg, 10kg and 20kg bags, offering a water resistant option that can be ready for grouting as little as three hours after fixing


Debi Bailey, Brand Manager of Dunlop Adhesives, said:

The Rapidset Floor & Wall Tile Adhesive is a great product for merchants to stock, especially over the coming months. It’s what a lot of tradesmen will choose to buy as, aside from the setting speed, it has incredible versatility in terms of both the substrate material and the tiles it bonds with. We pride ourselves on offering the best quality products on the market, and our Rapidset Floor & Wall Tile Adhesive certainly stands up to that billing.
