You can make your interiors visually striking. You can make them ultra-convenient and functional. But unless they’re comfortable, they still won’t make the grade. It’s essential to manage interior temperature – for more robust passenger experiences, and for overall vehicle efficiency.
3M delivers with our acoustic insulation material. Even as it absorbs NVH, it creates a thermal barrier that makes it easier to maintain desired temperatures in a range of environmental conditions. We also provide engineered films to control solar heat buildup through automotive glass.
Discover our 3M™ Thinsulate™ Acoustic Insulation, excellent for doors, headliners, trim, pillars, consoles and instrument panels. 3M also provides materials engineered for thermal conductivity that help direct heat toward heat sinks and prevent it from entering the vehicle interior, as well as engineered films to control solar heat buildup through automotive glass.
This trusted insulation material performs double duty for automotive interiors – it is designed to absorb sound vibrations and dissipate heat, excellent for maintaining comfortable interior temperatures regardless of the environment outside. Lightweight and compressible, the material is excellent for gap filling in voids in pillars, behind trim panels, in headliners, or instrument panels.
Step Inside. Our 3M experts are dedicated to collaborating on the best solutions for your unique challenges in automotive interiors. Let's discuss how 3M material science solutions can help you meet your specifications.
Effectively bond challenging or dissimilar materials in more places inside the vehicle. 3M provides single-coated, double-coated, thin bond and wire harness tapes, hot melts, reclosable fasteners and more.
3M applies decades of electronics experience in the increasingly electronic environment of the vehicle interior. Our shielding, blocking and EMI absorption solutions deliver low and stable contact resistance and maintain consistent performance even in tough environments.
Creativity without the weight – 3M solutions can enable the bonding of lighter materials in automotive interiors, replace metal fasteners and even allow for the production of plastic parts without heavy fillers.
3M is solving challenges of managing sound in evolving vehicle platforms – and and expanding our acoustic solutions to meet these new demands. Our Engineered Damping Material (EDM) is just one example.
Design a premium passenger experience, while keeping cost constraints in mind. Bond without mechanical fasteners. Meet the specific demands of the production line. That’s the freedom to exceed conventional limits in interiors.
