National Hardware Show “Sneak Peek”: 3M

3M is bringing the latest technology in wall repair to this year’s National Hardware Show, which kicks off tomorrow. 3M™ Patch Plus Primer will make its NHS debut as the only product on the market that uses nanotechnology to create a quick-drying, strong, even patch in just one easy step. Designed with pro-painters and DIYers in mind, this product creates an easier prep-process that addresses common challenges when patching a wall; such as shrinking, cracking and changes in paint sheen.

Featuring all the benefits of a lightweight spackling with the strength of a heavyweight spackling, 3M Patch Plus Primer delivers strong repairs up to three times faster than other products. Advanced acrylic resins offer great paint anchoring and the specially engineered fillers pack together to resist shrinking and provide strength. For optimal performance, this primer should be used on drywall, plaster, wood, stucco, and concrete surfaces.

Engineered nanoparticles create a primer-like film on surfaces, allowing the repair to be virtually invisible under dried paint and offering professional-looking results. Square packaging was developed to easily accommodate a three-inch putty knife, and the product’s lid was created to be easier to open than traditional spackling products that require a putty knife to remove the lid.

Innovative and ahead of the industry, there is no doubt the 3M Patch Plus Primer will be a success at NHS 2013. For more information, visit or follow @3MNews on Twitter.
