Bringing Body-in-White to Life

  • The designs you’re thinking of often depend on subtle curves and contours. They must also be functional. Achieving both at once presents real challenges. Especially when your body-in-white designs could incorporate dozens of sensors and cameras, and sit on electrified powertrains. At 3M, we deliver technologically advanced abrasives, structural adhesives, engineered damping materials and flexible sealants, to name a few, to help move your design out of your head and onto the production line. That’s what we’re doing today. Tell us what you’re thinking about tomorrow. We’re happy to help.

3M™ Structural Adhesive Technologies
  • 3M™ Structural Adhesive Technologies

    Structural adhesives can do much more than provide strength to automotive bonds. They can help you hit your targets for lightweighting, corrosion protection, crash safety and more. You can use structural adhesives in conjunction with mechanical fasteners and, in many cases, you can replace them. They can also save you significant time and money during production by enabling mixed materials, reducing panel fatigue and resin degradation, filling gaps, managing NVH, and reducing process steps. 3M Structural Adhesives are available in varying chemistries and formats so you can use them in multiple areas of the vehicle. Our experts are happy to help you determine the right structural adhesive solution for your specific needs, including automated application.
