ST. PAUL, Minn. -- January 22, 2014

3M announced today the launch of 3M™ Thinsulate™ Featherless Insulation, a new
loose fill insulation alternative to natural down. This loose fill alternative
is a first for the brand that has been trusted to keep people warm for more
than 30 years.

3M™ Thinsulate™ Featherless Insulation was designed to closely mimic the look
and performance of natural down with two times the loft when wet and without
the allergens. The fill is as lightweight as natural down, highly breathable
and provides extreme warmth for extreme conditions. In addition, the product

  *Warm even when wet
  *Equal to 600 fill power - no feathers needed
  *Loftier than down at the same basis weight

“3M™ Thinsulate™ Featherless Insulation brings real value by providing an
effective and cost-effective alternative to natural down,” said Erik Iverson
for 3M™ Thinsulate™ Insulation. “This innovation is just the beginning as the
3M™ Thinsulate™ Insulation brand continues to innovate bringing newer and
better products to the marketplace.”

3M™ Thinsulate™ Featherless Insulation is available for purchase now. For more
