Exterior: 3M aims to offer a solution for the inevitable scratches with a durable, high grade colourless urethane film which consists of three layers. The top clear coat gives the car a nice glossy finish below which there is the thermoplastic urethane while at the bottom lies a clear acrylic adhesive layer.

Paint Sealant: It primarily protects the coat of paint against the elements of nature like the harsh sun, bird droppings, grime, dust etc. Applying the same is quite a lengthy process too. First the car is washed with 3M shampoo, then claying is done to remove bugs and tar marks, sanding is carried out to remove scratches, then rubbing, polishing and finally application of paint sealant that forms the final protective layer.

Interior: The Germkleen treatment claims to provide 99 per cent germ-free car interior that is fresh, clean and has a pleasant smell. There are two primary products used in this treatment: The Anti-Microbial plastic cleaner and the Anti-Microbial upholstery cleaner. Both are foam-based products which are sprayed on the plastic parts like dashboard, trims and seats, carpets and roof.
