Whilst image is the first thought when a train carriage is viewed, long term corrosion protection is also of crucial importance. 3M™ Scotchkote™ liquid solutions meet both needs, by combining the durable and long lasting benefits of epoxy technology with the outstanding colour and gloss retaining properties of polyurethane coatings. Combine this with waterborne resins and a very high level of ease of graffiti removal, and Scotchkote products tick all the boxes for asset owners, operators and contractors.

3M™ Scotchkote™ products can be used as the complete system, or can be used in conjunction with 3M Commercial Graphics films, to provide the long term asset protection required, with whatever finish effect the client requires, whether a permanent livery or an advertising wrap.
