Acoustic sound waves

Acoustics and Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH)

Managing sound in a changing world


Exploring New Experiences in Sound

  • As vehicles become quieter, sound – inside and out – is another evolving challenge that your automotive designs must capture and address. 3M is here to help you navigate the changing path of sound in vehicles as motors are replaced with quieter electric powertrains. Our acoustic insulation, adhesives, fasteners and other materials help prevent NVH throughout design and manufacturing. But we also help you explore the science of sound. Our world-class research and testing facilities provide opportunities for collaboration and experimentation in the quality and management of sound itself – effectively answering important questions about what the passengers of tomorrow will hear in and around their vehicles.
