Dunlop Adhesives stops traffic with colour coded product packaging

Dunlop Adhesives, the specialist manufacturer of tile adhesives, grouts, finishing and ancillary products, is no stranger to product innovation and trade support which is why it invested in a traffic light colour system, coding its product packaging to help speed up jobs for the trade.

  • Preparation products to begin the job are coded in green, signalling getting off the starting blocks
  • The next step, adhesion, is signified by yellow packaging and is used for both ready mixed and powdered tile adhesives
  • Then comes grouting, signified by amber packaging to show the finish line is in sight. This range represents ready mixed, powdered and anti-mould grouts, and demonstrates substance as well as being aesthetically pleasing
  • Dunlop also teamed up with Microban®, one of the world’s best antibacterial and antifungal agents, to produce a range of antimicrobial grouting products to protect tile joints against E.coli, Salmonella, mould and mildew
  • Last in line is the finishing range. Represented by red packaging to symbolise coming to the end of the job, Dunlop’s range of sealants ensures tiled surfaces maintain their ‘freshly tiled’ look and last the distance
  • All of Dunlop Adhesives’ products are supported by a 10 year guarantee and a dedicated technical helpline is also operational in case any questions arise whilst on the job
