3M Releases New Body Protection System

Aug. 9, 2013

Aug. 9, 2013—3M has announced the release of the new 3M Body Protection System with the goal of making it easier for automotive professionals to match textures on rocker panels. The technology includes a pressurized spray gun (3M Accuspray HGP spray gun) and a rocker protector pouch available in 3-ounce and 5.5-ounce sizes.

According to 3M, the new system cuts application time in half with the ability to adjust pressure and spray pattern to better match OEM textures. The new pressurized 3M Accuspray spray gun can be sprayed at any angle and the pouch sizes allow estimators and repair techs to improve estimates.

The 3M Body Protection System helps painters spray low viscosity textured finishes with fine, medium, coarse and splattered patterns.

“As the use of these textured finishes continues to expand for sound deadening on thinner substrates, the need for the 3M Body Protection System will increase,” said Steve Widen, U.S marketing supervisor, 3M Automotive Aftermarket Division.
