Dunlop prides itself on offering product solutions that combine technical quality with exceptional ease of use, whatever the project.

Launched in 2013, Pro Décor is Dunlop’s revolutionary range of preparation products for decorating, designed to provide professional decorators, tradesmen and DIY enthusiasts alike with the perfect surface prior to painting or wallpapering.
