3M ID Numbers

3M transport information is based on an 11-digit 3M ID number. The 3M ID represents a specific product in a specific package size. Transport information for the same product in a different size may vary, therefore, it is important to know the size of the product to determine the correct 3M ID to use for searching. Transport information is displayed for multiple regulatory agencies; for hazardous material, transport information can and often does vary by agency.
