'3M Marine' has been discontinued.
3M Marine Cleaner, Restorer & Wax was formulated to make products that improve the appearance and longevity of your boat or RV’s gelcoat, without the hassle of multiple-step waxing and finishing processes. Products in the 3M Marine line use liquid formulas that combine waxes and compounds to turn processes that required multiple steps, bottles, and hours into a one-step application which will result in a similar or better outcome than the old-fashioned way.
- 3M Marine Clean & Shine wax - is the perfect solution for quick maintenance of minor oxidation, filmy residues from lake, river, or ocean water, and many more minor blemishes. The ready to use formula does not require any mixing or preparation and can simply be sprayed onto the surface and wiped off, leaving behind a noticeable high-gloss wax appearance.
- 3M Marine Cleaner & Wax - ideal to remove light to medium oxidation, lake river, or ocean water residue, rust deposits, exhaust stains, and dock skid marks. Leaves behind a protective coat that improves the shine of your gelcoat while preserving it from UV and weather exposure. Just one application gives you benefits that look like a multi-step process. Available in either 16 oz or 32 oz bottles.
- 3M Marine Restorer & Wax - Made to conquer heavy levels of oxidation, water residues, rust deposits, exhaust stains, and dock skid marks on boats or RVs. The unique formula combines rubbing compound with wax, restoring shine, and adding protection in just one application. The simplicity, time savings, and effectiveness of this product make it a favorite among boat detailing professionals. Available in either 33.8 oz or 1 gal bottles.

Question & Answers
hot melt rubber (synthetic)
Offers the widest range of application flexibility available. Exhibits excellent processing performance whether manually or automatically applied. Has superior tensile strength, adhesion properties and holding force which ensures consistent, reliable seals. Hot melt adhesive will bond faster to a surface which is referred to as quick-grab or quick-stick. It typically has higher tack (will feel stickier to the touch), but is also softer. It has lower heat resistance, shear resistance, and sometimes UV resistance than an acrylic adhesive. NOTE: it is called hot melt because the adhesive is applied hot by the manufacturer and then hardens as it cools (you do not need to apply heat to the tape yourself).
Properties are similar to that of hot melt rubber, but natural rubber often holds where other adhesives won't (recycled fibers, dust, cold, heat and heavy loads). It provides good overall adhesion and moisture resistance.
Offer excellent performance, especially for applications in temperatures less than 40°F and greater then 120°F. It provides excellent clarity, has high shear strength, is usually more permanent/durable even when exposed to moisture, and it ages well over extended periods in fluorescent and sunlight. Since it remains clear for the life of the application and does not yellow over time it is ideal for applications such as sealing white cartons. While it has good initial adhesion it does take 24-48 hours to cure and to achieve its maximum bond strength (has gradual adhesion buildup). Another difference between hot melt rubber and acrylic adhesive is if you fold tape over making the two adhesive sides touch the acrylic adhesive will remain attached to the carrier (e.g. paper, film) while a hot melt adhesive will stick to itself and pull off of the carrier. It is the best choice for clarity, UV resistance and aging characteristics.
Is great for extreme temperature applications since silicone adhesive can work in continuous operating temperatures from -100°F to 500°F. They also exhibit good chemical resistance, retain electrical properties, and remove cleanly with little or no residue.
Zinc oxide based adhesive formula is a skin-friendly adhesive which is commonly used on sports medicine tapes.
Thickness, AKA caliper or gauge, refers to the distance from one surface of a tape backing, or adhesive, to the other.
1 mil = 1/1000 of an inch
Examples: 1/16 inch = 62.5 mils; 1/32 inch = 31.25 mils
Lower gauge gloves are heavier - have thicker construction, fewer stiches knitted per inch and offer less dexterity.
Higher gauge gloves are lighter - have thinner/finer construction, more stitches knitted per inch and offer more dexterity.
Gloves offered typically runs from 7 to 18 (12 and 13 are in the middle of the scale).
