3M. Providing Answers for Your Challenges
At 3M, our 100-year history in the automotive aftermarket is a story of connecting with customers, discovering their needs and providing solutions. Our first masking tape was developed after a 3Mer saw workers gluing newspaper to the side of a car before painting. Since then, countless shops and technicians have shared their pain points and 3M has solved them. This year, we’re launching the new 3M™ Performance Spray Gun. It is not only the industry’s lightest spray gun, painters who’ve tried say it sprays great.
The 3M™ Performance Spray Gun joins our groundbreaking 3M™ Cubitron™ II abrasives, 3M™ Platinum™ body fillers, and our premium 3M™ Perfect-It™ compounds, polishes and pads in helping shops build productivity, decrease cycle time, and enhance their bottom lines.
As always, every product – every solution – is backed by our expert technical team which can guide you and your body shop every step of the way.
