Technology and Innovation

Dunlop continues to develop and unveil racing-inspired, driving-inspiring innovations which not only offer exceptional products but ensures safety, security and peace of mind to their ever-growing customer base.

 
Noise Shield Technology

Dunlop’s Noise Shield technology cuts interior sound by up to 50%* by bonding an advanced polyurethane foam layer to the inner surface of the tyre reducing vehicle noise without compromising performance capabilities.

Benefits:
  • Up to 50% less interior sound
  • No compromise on performance capabilities 
*Depending on the type of vehicle, its speed and road surface.
 

Multi Blade System

Multi-blade tyres rise to the challenges that extreme and varied winter driving conditions. Each blade performs well in particular conditions ensuring the tyre is suitable for all kinds of weather.
 
Benefits:
  • Different types of blades for varying road conditions
 

Specific Bead Beat System

Dunlop’s Specific Bead Beat System strengthens the link between tyre and rim providing maximum control, outstanding road feedback and a more precise driving experience
 
Benefits:
  • Enhanced road feedback
  • Greater stability and more precision
 

RunOnFlat Tyres

RunOnFlat tyre technology allows drivers to continue their journey (up to 50 miles) even with a puncture in order to reach their destination. However, Dunlop RunOnFlat tyres are only to be fitted to vehicles that are equipped with a tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS). The maximum distance a vehicle can travel with a puncture is 50 miles and a speed of 50 mph should not be exceeded.
 
Benefits:
  • Alleviates the risk of roadside tyre changes – drivers can now travel to a garage even with a puncture
  • Lowers the risk of a high-speed tyre blowout
 

Maximum Flange Shield (MFS)*

Dunlop’s MFS system is a protects system rim flanges with a profile of rubber that runs around the circumference of a tyre creating a buffer zone for the rim.
 
Benefits:
  • Protects expensive alloy wheels from ‘kerbing’*
    * Only available in select sizes’
 

Hybrid Overlay Technology

Hybrid Overlay technology is a jointless nylon bandage with 0% layer that guarantees reduced circumferential deformation at high speeds.
 
Benefits:
  • Improved high speed stability
  • Excellent wear resistance
  • Smooth wear
 

Dual Silica Compound

Dual silica compound guarantees low wear and tear while improving acceleration
 
Benefits:
  • Fantastic acceleration and braking performance
  • Superior handling in all weather conditions
  • Excellent grip
  • Low wear and tear
 

Silica-Plus Compound

The silica-plus rubber compound is derived from motorsport providing greater adherence to the road
 
Benefits:
  • Superb acceleration and braking performance
  • Superior handling in all weather conditions
  • Excellent grip
  • Low wear and tear
 

Dunlop Self-Supporting Technology (DSST)

Tyres are able to travel at speeds of up to 50 mph for up to 50 miles with a complete loss of air pressure due to reinforced sidewalls.
 

Multi-Pitch Tread Design Technology

These tyres are developed to have different sizes of tread blocks which helps cancel out road noises.
 

Active Traction Sipe System (ATSS)

Ideal winter tyre which uses three unique sipes which work together to pull, grip and enhance traction in snow and ice, leading to high-performance handling, cornering and braking.
 

Dimensional Stable Polyester (DSP)

This tyre promotes long-lasting uniformity and toughness which delivers a smoother and more comfortable ride through a special process that pre-cures and pre-stretches DPS ply cords.
 

Evaqua Grooves Angled EVA

This tyre promotes more responsive handling by having innovative groves which help to pump water away from the tyre’s footprint.
 

Traction Web Technology (TWT)

Ideal tyre to negotiate wet weather conditions through the integration of a web like TWT tread pattern which pushes water out of the tyre path.
 

Hydro-Paddle Technology

This tyre uses strategically configured tread grooves to help efficiently channel water away from the tyre’s footprint which results in keeping the tyre in touch with the road surface.
