 3M has created a Scotchgard Paint Protection Film program focused on the marine industry.

With this program in place, 3M has forged relationships with marine market development partners that can not only provide film, but also offer installation services, and sales and installation training, which is critical for ensuring consistent and professional results.

"The new 3M program for Scotchgard film helps create a viable revenue stream for boat dealers, aftermarket service yards and OEMs," said Brian Winke, global business manager for 3M Marine, in a statement. "Our market development partners are investing with us in creating a sustainable marine program, which includes highly trained applicators and customized digital templates for marine applications."

Scotchgard film is a durable, virtually invisible urethane film that is applied above the waterline to vulnerable, high-wear surfaces of fiberglass boats, pontoon boats and boat trailers, such as the bow step, keel, engine cowling, gunwale, bow eye and transom. The film helps protect vessels and trailers from damage by dock rub, scratches and bow roller abrasion.
