Continuing Solutions for Internal Combustion Engine Designs (ICE)

  • Like you, we have spent decades helping improve and maximize both the manufacturing and performance of internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles. 3M™ Friction Shims in the powertrain can help reduce component size and increase performance, while allowing a greater margin for safety. We deliver 3M™ Interam™ Mat Mount and Thermal Insulation materials for higher performance in converters and emission control systems. From one end of the powertrain to the other, 3M helps advance ICE vehicles through a network of application development and testing facilities worldwide.


Propelling ICE engines forward

Internal combustion engines are becoming smaller, but the components driving the powertrain must maintain material strength and increase torque to achieve higher efficiency. Explore how 3M can help you design increasingly powerful powertrains.

    Achieve Higher Torque

    3M™ Friction Shims answer the demand for maximum power density – enhancing friction to transmit higher loads and enabling more compact, lightweight designs.

    Ensure Top Performance

    Sintered Silicon Nitride (Si₃N₄) is an extremely hard and corrosion resistant ceramic material that is 60% lighter than steel. It offers an excellent combination of properties such as thermal and impact shock resistance, electrical insulation and wear resistance. This material is excellent for ceramic rings in oxygen (lambda) sensors which help ensure top engine performance and alert to high emissions.
