3M Warranty With Your Indianapolis Vehicle Wraps

Now that you have chosen to wrap your company vehicle or personal vehicle with vinyl, are you covered for material mishaps? 3M has a basic product warranty. The basic product warranty protects material right out of the box. Their promise is no physical damage, visual defects, or adhesive defects. 3M’s basic product warranty protects the material from anything that would affect the performance. The 3M MCS warranty takes your coverage and protection a step further. The MCS warranty has you covered for practically any application when you use finished graphics completely made with 3M graphics products.
