Can't Find What You Are Looking For ??

If you are pretty sure what you are looking for is within 3M Industrial Business and allied fields but you can't find it on our site, it can be a frustrating experience.  We are working everyday to keep our site content as current as possible so there may be a few possible scenarios why you can't find the 3M product you are looking for...

1. The product has been discontinued by 3M.
It is true.  3M is a very dynamic company and is constantly deleting obsolete products while adding new ones.  We keep discontinued products in a special category located on our sidebar.  If you find that the product  you are looking for belongs to the discontinued products category, please contact us to find out if 3M provides a suitable alternative.

2. The product has been discontinued but replacement exists.
Sometimes, 3M will discontinue a product and create a new one that is identical to the old one.  Every time this happens 3M may keep the original UPC code but will always create a new 3M Stocking ID Number (11 digits).  There are many reasons why this happens but a common reason is when 3M changes product packaging.  For example, 3M may change a particular product from 12 units a case to 6 units a case or vice versa.  These types of changes will cause the old numbers to become obsolete. We can help you locate the new 3M Stockiing ID Number.

3. The product is a made-to-order product.
Many 3M products can be made to specification.  Sometimes 3M will change a stock product into a "generic" made-to-order item.  Therefore, not being able to find it doesn't mean it ceases to exist.  Simply give us a call. We help customers daily to address their custom 3M product needs.

4. This product is a restricted 3M product.
Sometimes products may be restricted by a particular 3M division that can not be ordered through normal channels.  Give us a call or shoot us an email to help you determine if that product can be ordered for you.

Thanks again and please remember that 3M Industrial Business is an enormous collection of products across a multitude of divisions. We are here to accomodate you on all and any of your 3M needs.
