3M Commercial Care has also introduced a much-awaited new formulation of its Scotchgard protector for carpet and upholstery. The new product remains butyl-free and replaces the previous Scotchgard brand protector from 3M. The diluted protector stays in solution, even in hard water and there is less need for mixing a new solution for every application, the company says. For spills, 3M says it has improved water repellency.
