HydrolocTM technology – the future of filler and repair products

Specialist manufacturer of tile adhesives, grouts, finishing and ancillary products, Dunlop, is providing merchants with great filling technology that helps customers create a superior finish in a faster time than ever before. HydrolocTM, the ground-breaking technology unique to Dunlop, cuts out problems associated with more traditional repair products and is a must-have for merchants this spring.

  • Unique because the mix water is used as part of a chemical reaction that dries the filler, HydrolocTM is unlike other products that dry via water evaporation
  • This means the product dries evenly, regardless of thickness, within 24 hours
  • Because the reaction occurs throughout the filler, its thickness plays no pivotal role in the waiting time
  • The drying process is not dependent on environmental factors either, making drying times more consistent
  • HydrolocTM features in half of Dunlop’s Pro Décor range including Deep Filling Compound, High Bond Renovation Filler, Fibre Reinforced Smoothing & Filling Compound and Rapid Repair Mortar


Debi Boulton, Dunlop Brand Manager, commented:

Dunlop’s mission has always been to provide merchants with industry leading products. HydrolocTM technology, found in our Pro Décor range, is a better alternative to other, less reliable, products because there is no shrinkage from mass loss caused during water evaporation, which saves the user time and money.
