At 3M, we focus a lot on the science of improving creativity and production efficiency for automotive OEMs and Tier suppliers. This applies to our ongoing studies of acoustics – how the design of the vehicle exterior can ultimately affect the sound on the interior. It also applies to making our NVH management solutions as simple and as efficient as possible, so you can quickly incorporate and use them in exterior and glass applications. Learn more here.
3M™ Acrylic Foam Tapes and Acrylic Plus Tapes are go-to solutions for automotive sealing. Conformable, viscoelastic foam cores provide stress relaxation under high application loads, and under normal conditions maintain tight bond lines. These tapes have been developed specifically for attaching exterior trim and other parts to automotive paint surfaces.
3M engineered films and tapes do more than just protect aesthetics. They’re also an ideal solution for sealing holes, seams and many gaps around joints and fasteners, which helps prevent vibration and unwanted noise. These products are simple to incorporate into nearly any OEM process. Extremely durable protective films are available in die-cut parts with or without premask. They are flexible and conformable for use even on complex automotive parts. These films feature a 2 mil pressure-sensitive acrylic adhesive, which does not require curing.
3M is constantly working to meet the evolving challenges of automotive OEM and Tier suppliers worldwide. If you need help finding an existing solution or would like to talk about specific ideas you’re working on, get in touch with us.
