  • 3M™ Acrylic Foam Tapes and 3M™ Acrylic Plus Tapes are high performing foam tapes offering unique adhesion and stress relaxation properties, as well as superior environmental and plasticizer resistance. They have been manufactured for 30 years and are immensely diverse in their range of applications – from trim, mouldings, door and body seals, emblems, cladding and sensors.

  • Before application, surfaces need to be dry, dust and oil free. 3M™ High Performance Wipes create a clean and fully prepped surface.

  • Our 3M™ Thinsulate™ thermal acoustic solutions have helped manage noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) inside vehicle cabins to meet trends such as electrification and autonomous driving. Our solutions are backed by world-class testing facilities using the latest technologies to visualize acoustic and thermal measurement and management. 3M is literally looking at sound in a whole different way.

  • 3M™ Adhesive technologies allow for multi-material bonding to become a reality for composite, aluminium or high-strength steel vehicles, without the need for traditional rivets.

  • 3M™ Engineered Films are an efficient alternative or addition to painted components. Self-adhesive films protect sensitive surfaces and allow designers more artistic freedom.

  • When you need a strong, reliable, yet removable closure or attachment, 3M™ Dual Lock™ Reclosable Fasteners are the easy alternative to traditional fastening methods such as screws, nuts or bolts.

  • 3M has a comprehensive product portfolio encompassing solutions for all ranges of temperature and application needs encountered in a catalytic converter. 3M™ Interam™ mats protect the sensitive components in exhaust systems throughout its lifespan.

  • 3M™ Wheel Weights are made from a conformable wheel balancing material combined with 3M™ Automotive Attachment Tape providing an all-in-one wheel weight balancing system that enables a better drive, whilst increasing the durability of the wheels.

  • As your assembly line modernises, you need adhesive options to work with your new processes. 3M’s tapes and fasteners offer innovative dispensing options for automotive manufacturing, including 3M™ Acrylic Foam Tapes, 3M™ Acrylic Plus Tapes and 3M™ Sealing and Weatherstrip Attachment Tapes.
