    Introducing the 3M™ Collision Repair Materials Planner, CRiMP. Modern body repair is more complex than ever, requiring you to use more materials like seam sealers, structural adhesives, sound deadening and corrosion protection during the repair process.
    But because you buy these supplies in bulk and use them in several repairs, it’s difficult to document how much you use in each repair. That makes it difficult for you to be properly reimbursed. You end up dealing with the hassle and expense of supplements — or eating the cost of the materials, both of which cut into your bottom line.

  • Better planning for better profitability.

    With the 3M™ Collision Repair Materials Planner (CRiMP), you can get reimbursed for 3M repair materials, even if it’s not a square unit. CRiMP is a free digital tool that helps shops create a material plan specific to a job. It then generates a comprehensive invoice that itemizes each required product and details the amount used. Not only does this help the shop get paid for the materials it uses, it also helps insurance companies document the materials required for a safe and responsible repair. Even better, if used during repair planning CRiMP reduces the need for supplements later, saving both the shop and the insurance company the time, money and hassle involved with extra paperwork. Note: CRiMP is currently only available in the United States.
