Drying out fast – Rapid Repair Mortar with Hydroloc™ drastically reduces drying time!

Repairs can be a point of frustration for homeowners and tradesmen alike – waiting for walls to dry means work can take days to be completed.

    • With this in mind, Dunlop, specialist manufacturer of adhesives, grouts, finishing and ancillary products, has developed Rapid Repair Mortar with Hydroloc™
    • It is an innovative new product for filling in chases, making good around pipework, door and window frames, sockets and switches
    • This mortar is perfect for tough internal repairs, but the stand out feature is the 90-minute drying time


Debi Boulton, Brand Manager at Dunlop, commented:

“Our Pro Décor range offers the very best products on the market to tradesmen, and the Rapid Repair Mortar with Hydroloc™ is no exception. The product can be cut, shaped and smoothed after 20 minutes, with no shrink or slump, and with a drying time of 90 minutes it ensures jobs can be finished quickly whilst maintaining quality.”

Debi continued:

“The Hydroloc™ system means the mortar dries by chemical reaction, rather than water evaporation, so repairs are dry and hard very quickly, which I’m sure will make the Rapid Repair Mortar a very popular choice!”
