The Technology

Most of us have some experience with Scotch™ Tape, whether to repair something at the office or to wrap a gift at home. Scotch Tape can have as many as eight layers of material in a product as thin as a sheet of paper. What makes such layering possible is the science, process, and technology of microreplication and 3M is the foremost expert in this field.

3M Scotchgard Pro Series Paint Protection Film employs that same 3M innovation in microreplication to produce an 8 mil urethane film that is coated with a tough and resilient stretchable clear coat. The stretchable clear coat is designed to make the film glossy, maintenance-free, self-healing, stain and fade-resistant for years. Consequently, 3M Scotchgard Pro Series Paint Protection Film allows customers to treat the film as they do their paint. There is no special maintenance required with 3M Scotchgard Pro Series Paint Protection Film.

Here is how 3M’s Scotchgard Pro Series Paint Protection Film stacks up to the competition. The difference is clear!
