For a buyer’s convenience, 3M may provide a Product Technical Data Sheet/Product Bulletin, other engineering or technical information, recommendations, installation instructions, and other Product-related information or materials (all collectively referred to as “Product Information”), but 3M does not warrant any Product Information.
3. The 3M Warranty is contingent on the Product being stored, applied, installed, maintained, and used only as 3M recommends in all Product Information and in this Warranty Document. Also, 3M has no obligation under the 3M Warranty as to Product that has been: (a) printed on, modified, altered, or processed in any manner; (b) damaged through contact with a person or thing, misuse, accident, vandalism, neglect, or other action by anyone other than 3M; or (c) affected by environmental conditions, such as power fluctuations, improper power supply, or activity by animals or insects.

EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAW, THE 3M WARRANTY IS MADE IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, RIGHTS OR CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OR CONDITION OF MERCHANTABILITY, SATISFACTORY QUALITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND THOSE ARISING FROM A COURSE OF DEALING, CUSTOM OR USAGE OF TRADE. THE BUYER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR DETERMINING IF A PRODUCT IS SUITABLE FOR ITS PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND ITS APPLICATION METHODS.
3M must receive any 3M Warranty claim in writing by the earlier of: (a) applicable Warranty Period’s expiration date; or (b) ten business days after Product buyer’s discovery of that claim. If the Product is proven not to have met the 3M Warranty during the applicable Warranty Period, then THE BUYER’S EXCLUSIVE REMEDY AND 3M’S SOLE OBLIGATION, WILL BE AT 3M’S OPTION, TO REPAIR OR REPLACE THAT PRODUCT QUANTITY OR REFUND THE APPLICABLE PURCHASE PRICE.
