Advanced Ceramics from 3M

  • From smart cars to the smart grid, advanced ceramics from 3M are driving innovation in some of the world’s most technologically advanced industries. Our ceramic systems, materials and components provide effective, trusted solutions for transportation, oil and gas, fuel cells, electronics, and even space exploration.

    In many ways, ceramics are uniquely suited to the challenges of these demanding applications. Lightweight and intrinsically hard, 3M advanced ceramics resist heat, chemicals, wear and corrosion better than metals and plastics – helping them withstand extreme conditions where other materials fail.

    For example, 3M advanced ceramics are helping industrial facilities reduce maintenance downtime by improving equipment reliability. They’re hard at work deep underground, improving the extraction of hard-to-reach oil and gas reserves. They’re even in outer space, protecting satellites against impact by micrometeorites. Closer to home, 3M advanced ceramics are helping automotive manufacturers create more compact, powerful and sophisticated automotive engines.

    Browse the materials below or contact us today to learn how 3M advanced ceramics can help you meet the challenges of your industry.
