If I am in an in-network country, how do I purchase product?
For customers located in-network, your orders should be placed with the current 3M Customer Service desk. 3M will continue to take orders and ship orders until further notice.
What if my country is not included on the in-network list. How do I purchase product?
If you are located in a country other than in-network regions and your local 3M representative has notified you that they will no longer be able to provide this product, we can work together on the following options:
A few questions that may be on everyone’s mind:
Where will the product be made and shipped going forward?
All Polymask products will continue to be manufactured and shipped from Conover, North Carolina with the exception of a limited number of products that will continue to be contract-manufactured in Europe.
Will I still have access to all the same Polymask products?
Yes! There are no plans to change the product, item number or specs.
We will continue to produce the same products with the existing part numbers. If there are changes down the road, a Surface Guard Sales or Customer Service representative will work directly with you to ensure no gaps in service or performance.
How will I know when I should start placing orders with Surface Guard?
3M and Surface Guard inform you of any future changes to the ordering process. We will make every effort to keep customers updated on the timing of these changes through email and through direct communication. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
