Busted!? 3M Polyurethane Protective Tape 8674 used for Zagg invisibleSHIELD, BodyGuardz, Best Skins Ever...

After a bit of internet searching, 3M's Polyurethane Protective Tape 8674 looks like the "military" material behind the products being sold as Zagg's invisibleSHIELD, BodyGuardz and Best Skins Ever. 3M's wet installation instructions match those vendors' installation instructions and the 3M instructions also include a drawing that looks very much like the vendors' marketing photographs. For the cost of one shield from these companies, you can buy an entire roll of the tape and then cut shields for your whole tribe. That's the downside - you'll have to cut your own shapes. Fortunately, posted a pdf template for an iPhone skin. Several other shapes are shown on the vendors' sites, however, those might be copyrighted images.

Good luck with your skins and shields.
