At the heart of your ship maintenance program is metalworking – something 3M has focused on for over 100 years. We invented abrasives to help you cut, grind, finish and polish more efficiently – and we continue to innovate for you. Superior products like 3M™ Cubitron™ II fast-cutting, long-lasting abrasives and Scotch-Brite™ Clean and Strip XT Pro and XT Pro Extra coating removal discs that change out quick and deliver new levels of performance can be the keys to saving time and money in your maintenance operations.

The right surface preparation tools and innovative paint spraying equipment make all the difference when taking a surface from blemished to beautiful. Tools like the 3M™ Performance Industrial Spray Gun that’s lightweight and uses less solvent when cleaning and our wide range of masking tapes that are strong, waterproof and remove cleanly give your crew a smarter way to prep and paint.
