3M began in 1902 with five founders that had a spirit of innovation and collaboration, leading to more than 60,000 3M products that are used in homes, businesses, schools, hospitals and other industries.
At 3M we believe that quality matters. We believe that every customer that purchases a 3M product should receive an authentic product – each and every time. Counterfeits or fakes are typically cheaply made imitations that don’t offer the quality assurance that you expect from 3M products.
Counterfeit products are not tested or approved like authentic 3M products. Instead, they are made by unknown fraudsters, using unknown processes and materials, with unknown or nonexistent quality control. And depending on the type of product, using a counterfeit product could put you at risk.
Be wary of offers that seem too good to be true – they usually are.
