Find out more about 3M Paints and Coatings
3M Boron Nitride Cooling Fillers for thermally conductive, electrically insulating polymers.
Functional additives used to enhance performance in a variety of coatings systems, including architectural paint.
Unique, semi-transparent, white-colored, fine particle-size, high-strength microspheres.
Dynamar PPAs are a family of high-performance products designed to enhance the extrusion of various thermoplastic polymers. Even at low concentration levels, Dynamar PPAs can help increase throughput and processing efficiency, even for tougher, high viscosity resins.
Based on C4 chemistry, 3M Fluorochemical Additives for Paints and Coatings are designed to enhance performance, reduce surface defects, and keep surfaces looking like new, longer.
3M fluorosurfactants offer formulators an outstanding level of performance and control in a broad range of water- and solvent-based coatings.
3M Glass Bubbles are free-flowing powders consisting of thin-walled hollow glass microspheres. They have a high strength-to-density ratio, so they are both lightweight and strong enough to survive processing.
The use of 3M™ Glass Bubbles to increase time until condensation forms on painted surfaces.
This guide provides suggestions for efficient metering and mixing of 3M™ Glass Bubbles.
The chemistry and physical properties of 3M glass bubbles are such that they have shown benefits in reflecting incident solar radiation primarily in the near-infrared region, thus providing cooler surfaces.
Selecting microspheres for performance enhancements.
Family of high-performance water and solvent-based materials, designed to protect porous surfaces such as concrete, stone and tile from both water and oil-based stains.
