3M Announces Two New Products for Waterborne Paint

3M’s Automotive Aftermarket division has unveiled two new products for working with solvent-based or waterborne-based paints – 125 Micron and 200 Micron Welded-in Filters.

The new Filters from 3M offer significant time savings for technicians by improving paint flow, eliminating the need to pre-strain paint with separate equipment and enhancing overall performance, according to the company. The new 125 Micron Welded-in Filter features a finer mesh to better filter out clumps and coagulated particles that can be found in waterborne paints.

In addition, 3M has introduced Scotch Performance Masking Tape 233+. According to the company, the tape is the ideal masking solution for body shops when working with either solvent-based or waterborne paints. The signature green masking tape from 3M is specially treated to be water-resistant, providing a sharp paint edge without lifting, slivering during removal or leaving adhesive residue behind.
