Shield Surfaces from Overspray, Dust and Dirt
3M™ Overspray Masking Liquid is a specially designed, water-soluble coating formulated to protect vehicles from paint and primer overspray. This sprayable liquid is applied with conventional HVLP spray equipment and dries to a tacky film. Designed to prevent gentle paint overspray mist from getting on the vehicle, this masking liquid remains wet or tacky, trapping dust and dirt under its protective film and capturing paint mist, airborne dust and dirt on top of its protective film.
Unlike masking paper or plastic, 3M™ Overspray Masking Liquid effectively coats all vehicle surfaces, including wheels, grills, windshields, bumpers and body panels, which eliminates the need for additional buffing of adjacent panels to remove overspray. This masking liquid provides protection from all refinish paints and primers and can be used with bake or air dry type paints. We recommend application of this product prior to painting or priming and it may be applied to paint, glass, chrome, aluminum, plastic, vinyl and rubber.
Seals entire vehicle to prevent paint overspray from reaching undamaged panels
After product application, the vehicle may be painted immediately. Once dry, the product and overspray may be washed off with a garden hose or pressure washer. Even if left on for weeks, 3M™ Overspray Masking Liquid remains water soluble and can be washed off. If this overspray masking liquid is left on the vehicle until detailing, it may also be used in place of detergent during the final wash.
