Display light management

Harnessing and manipulating light not only empowers visionary HMI designs, but can ensure critical information is seen easily and reliably. 3M technology helps enable automotive displays by directing and enhancing light precisely where needed, while keeping light reflections in check.

  • Info display light management comparison
  • Bring brightness and contrast to the forefront while minimising reflections and helping increase efficiency

    Information communicated on automotive displays must be visible under many conditions and help keep the driver free of distractions. As larger, curved, floating and browless display designs gain traction, the job of making those designs functionally possible is no small task. These display designs must support an ever-increasing amount of information and data – audio systems, navigation systems, vehicle cameras and various driver curated apps depend on the display as the key medium for interaction and communication.

    • Enhance brightness and readability with prismatic and multi-layer optical technologies that recycle and direct light where it is most needed.
    • Minimise reflections and control the distribution of light with louver technology.
    • Help reduce energy consumption while maintaining colour performance with 98% efficient reflector films.
    • Increase contrast and durability while reducing ambient reflections with optically clear adhesives.
    • Virtually eliminate the light you don’t need with light blocking and shielding tapes.

Display bonding

Stretch your capabilities to help meet the needs of evolving automotive display designs. As displays become bigger, thinner, and more curved, the need for automotive grade tapes and adhesives that can deliver bonding solutions for your unique design demands is greater than ever. Adhesives have been a core technology for more than a century, making 3M highly qualified to deliver solutions that help meet the performance demands and design flexibility needs of evolving automotive HMI systems.

  • Enhance automotive display longevity and performance

    We deliver solutions in foam tapes, structural liquid adhesives and optically clear adhesives that are designed to solve a broad range of bonding challenges including impact absorption, fatigue resistance, moisture protection, environmental robustness, anti-shatter and light efficiency and transfer.

    • Help improve stability and resilience with adhesives designed to deliver excellent static tensile and shear performance with high peel adhesion.
    • Get adhesive strength in extreme environments with automotive display bonding solutions that maintain static stress resistance.
    • Help protect sensitive display designs from impact and cyclic fatigue with energy absorbing, viscoelastic 3M™ VHB™ Tapes.
    • Deliver visionary designs no matter how thin the bond line or how wide the display with liquid adhesives that help provide immediate strength and reworkability.
    • Mission critical electronics need to be free from moisture and contaminants to perform. Help keep them protected while running at their peak with our line of very high bonding closed cell foam tapes.
    • Bring brilliance and performance to automotive displays with optically clear adhesives that deliver excellent clarity and are easy to convert. Designed for bubble resistance in laminations exposed to high temperature and humidity.

Display electromagnetic interference

Blocking and absorbing electromagnetic interference (EMI) is critical as vehicles become more and more connected to the world around them and rely on electronic systems for everything from driver information to infotainment. Reduce interference and help protect crucial electronics with EMI solutions from 3M. Whether it is grounding, shielding or absorbing interference, we have a full range of EMI tapes and absorbers to help enable clear and consistent electronic signals.

  • EMI solution diagram - interior of vehicle display
  • Manage EMI to help optimise connectivity

    EMI solutions from 3M help manage interference by providing low and stable contact resistance and helping improve signal to noise ratio. In addition, our solutions provide reliable adhesion which enhances consistent electric and magnetic performance in rugged environmental conditions.

    • Ground and shield your automotive electronics to help defend them against interference and electrostatic discharge with conductive adhesive transfer tapes and conductive foil and fabric tape solutions.
    • Dissipate and absorb unwanted high or low frequencies with EMI absorber technology that incorporates specialised magnetic particles.

Display thermal management

The automotive cockpit is where new technologies are converging. Information displays are evolving to deliver more data and functionality for an improved driver and passenger experience. That demand for a better overall experience, higher computing speeds and performance, combined with modern design trends that expose information displays directly to the sun, make it more important than ever to prevent heat from damaging display components.
  • Enable automotive information displays to run cooler and more reliably
    • Achieve modern designs with efficient, highly flexible and conformable thermal management materials that deliver precise application and high performance without manufacturing complexity. Materials are available in pad and adhesive tape formats.
    • Improve display system reliability and intended performance by enabling displays to operate in optimal temperature ranges that result from a balanced combination of bulk material conductivity (k) and wet out.
    • Reduce siloxane contamination issues with the acrylic chemistry in our tapes and pads. The tapes and pads have excellent electrical isolation properties and some pads are UL94 V-0 listed.
    • Soft and conformable even to non-flat surfaces while providing excellent handling and workability.

Display cushioning and damping

To help keep critical systems running - those that connect drivers and allow vehicles to perform safely and reliably - it is imperative to protect them. As displays increase in size and reliance on touchscreen technology, foams that can absorb and disperse impact energy as well as reduce point loads will be instrumental in helping to keep displays and digital clusters operating effectively.

  • Person touching info display screen
  • Protect critical information displays and improve system longevity

    Our highly damped foams deliver 60% to 70% impact absorption, helping to protect and foster display system longevity. These solutions are available in multiple stiffnesses and thicknesses, and can be laminated with adhesives as well as die cut to meet your unique design needs.

    • Help reduce vibration that cause buzz, squeak, and rattle with high internal damping that dissipates energy.
