Scotchgard Question........

Posted by marciasc (My Page) on

For years I have used Scotchgard Heavy Duty Water Repellent for outdoor fabrics. I spray my banner/flags and cushions etc. that will be out in the rain. It works great!

I couldn't find it anywhere so yesterday I emailed 3M who make it. I got a reply right away saying they had discontinued the product.

What do you use to waterproof outdoor things?

RE: Scotchgard Question........

I worked for 3M when they discontinued Scotchgard. The reason they gave was that it no longer produced significant revenue, 3M was big on revenue. I don't recall any mention of a replacement product but perhaps I wasn't paying attention. Those revenue meeting were boring.
