Properties from Thing
additionalType URL An additional type for the item, typically used for adding more specific types from external vocabularies in microdata syntax. This is a relationship between something and a class that the thing is in. In RDFa syntax, it is better to use the native RDFa syntax - the 'typeof' attribute - for multiple types. Schema.org tools may have only weaker understanding of extra types, in particular those defined externally.

potentialAction Action Indicates a potential Action, which describes an idealized action in which this thing would play an 'object' role.
sameAs URL URL of a reference Web page that unambiguously indicates the item's identity. E.g. the URL of the item's Wikipedia page, Freebase page, or official website.
url URL URL of the item.

A ProductModel gives a datasheet or vendor specification of a
product (in the sense of a prototypical description).  Use this type
when you are describing a product datasheet rather than an actual
product, e.g. if you are the manufacturer of the product and want to
mark up your product specification pages. For example: The ACME
Colorvision 123 specifiation on the ACME Corp. site for that model.

Recommendation: Try to provide identifiers (gtin13, gtin14, gtin8, mpn
properties) and link to you as the manufacturer (manufacturer
property) so that search engines can use your data to enrich offers of
your products found elsewhere.
