"Maleable and sticky but not too much so - it goes on to the wall well without falling off and spreads easily. Very nice to work with"

"Had been using Weber fix WR, in 15kg tubs, but only needed a little to finish off, so I bought this. Excellent! Very high grab, goes on easily, wished I'd used it for bath panel. Would recommend and will buy when I do the kitchen"

Amazing Tile Adhesive
31-Oct-2012
By
, WOLVERHAMPTON
"Used this product on the whole of our kitchen, top to bottom, first time id ever tiled a kitchen and this stuff was pretty amazing to use, it was strong; held tiles in place securely when placing on the wall..
I was weary first when using this product as its dunlop and im used to unibond products but, i decided to ignore the comment and use it anyway, and im very glad i did..
The only downfall would be the product can be quite stiff to use but i just gave it a quick mix before applying to the walls and it was fine, they just need to make this product in a larger scale!"

"The adhesive was excellent to work with. Did hold the tiles well during application.. Easy to apply.
The only thing I wish you could buy say 22kg container at a cheaper price. It comes only in 7.5 kg.

OK for small jobs, Trade No...
11-Jul-2013
By
, Fife
"This product has been reviewed in the past as being a bit thick and difficult to tool.
I have tried this twice or perhaps three times now, and I always found it OK, for the the job and the price, as it was always small patch up fixes. I have recently done a larger tile job, I priced it out and found MAPEI tile adhesive to be the better price. I had not used that brand before.
Having used it I have to say the complaints about the Dunlop product are well founded regarding it’s application. By comparison it is a bit stiffer to spread over a large area.
For a small job where one 7.5kg is all you need it’s great.
For a large job try another brand.
Just my preference....don’t buy tile adhesive / grout all in one
buy two separate products. It may cost more........but
It will save time, should you need to rake out the grout at a later time
either to make a repair or just clean up the grout (rake it out and re-do)

Tile adhesive
02-Apr-2012
By
, Chichester
"I bought this after I ran out of the UniBond Waterproof Wall Tile Adhesive Large Size
(Product Code: 88970) and that was out of stock.
I found the Dunlop did not stick to the wall quite as well as the Unibond, however the tiles did not slip down as much with the Dunlop as I had found with the Unibond. So on that little point I think it did score over the Unibond as gripping the tile was more important to me than initially sticking to the wall. As for any water proof capacity I can't comment. The excess did wipe off easily enough which was good.

Works as described
01-Apr-2011
By
, London
"Have used it now for two bathrooms, over 40sqm worth of wall tiles.
Find that it goes one very well and once the tiles are in place rather difficult to completely remove, though enough time givem them a good wiggle if needed.
Once dry, difficult to clean up, just need to make sure everything is cleaned before it is dried!"

Product difficult to apply
19-Feb-2012
By
, Bristol
"The dunlop waterproof adhesive, is very difficult to apply to the wall surface. I have been using Hardibacker board on the whole. It tends to stick to my notched trowel instead. When it does stick the tile is difficult to move as it is drying so fast to the background.
I have the Mapei product (not the waterproof version) and this is a joy to use.
I am now going to take back 1 of my 2 dunlop tubs I brought. I will be buying the mapei waterproof version instead.
Stick to making Tyres Dunlop - you're good at that."

Dissapointed
18-Dec-2011
By
, London
"I purchased this just because of the good reviews. Firstly I didn't know Dunlop made tile adhesive?! I thought they just made tyres and rubber.
I thought the waterproof element meant that it would make my water damaged wall waterproof from further damage from the shower, but i later read that no tile adhesive will make your wall waterproof. The adhesive material is waterproof but won't stop water seeping into the wall. For that you will need to tank the wall.
Back to the product.
It covered about 2 - 2.5 M2. It was thick and went on nicely.
The reason i gave it a low score is because it took TWO DAYS to set. I was kind of in a rush to finish the job so that didn't help.
Next time i think i might stick to Mapei.
I'm not going to use this again so i guess i wouldn't recommend it to someone.
Hope this helps someone."

Substandard adhesive
12-Jul-2010
By
, St James
"This tile adhesive was the worst I've ever applied. The material was too stiff to spread evenly and did not grip the plasterboard properly. It needed to be pressed down very hard.
The final job was satisfactory, but the effort involved was huge. I'll never use it again.
