Bonding tapes and adhesives, a proven alternative to screws and other mechanical fasteners, offer strength and sealing simultaneously. High quality, precision formulations with proven performance for your Heavy Industrial environment, inside and out.
From production to precision, thick coatings to thin, 3M’s Spray Solutions offers manufacturing facilities premium performance while helping to make cleaning and maintenance faster and easier and reducing solvent used.
Reduce noise and vibration to improve your product’s performance. 3M’s Acoustic Solutions help mute unwanted sound and damp vibration at a minimum for smooth, virtually silent operation of heavy equipment.
Prolong the life of your equipment and help maintain product quality specifications during manufacturing. 3M products for air and liquid filtration reduce harmful contaminants that can affect product quality and help reduce maintenance costs by keeping equipment running smoothly.
Refine finish and smooth rough surfaces without compromising geometric integrity. 3M offers a full line of abrasives – belts, discs, sheets, rolls, wheels and specialty items – in a broad combination of minerals, backings and bonds to help you prep, blend and perfect.
Level welds, grind bevels, shape parts to a specific geometry, and remove surface imperfections. 3M’s abrasive wheels, disks and belts help you achieve the best results when working with metal, ceramic, fiberglass and a variety of other materials.
Increase power density of your engines with the help of 3M™ Friction Shims that provide a micro-scale interlock of bolted components.
When it has to be lighter – but ordinary foam technology is too weak– look to the glass bubble technology. Plastic structures filled with 3M hollow glass bubbles keep parts strong and rigid while eliminating extra weight to help cut fuel and transportation costs.
Refine scratches and put finishing touches on work pieces and parts. Functional or aesthetic finishes are easy to achieve with 3M abrasives.
Extend battery life, improve fuel efficiency and help reduce emissions with powertrain solutions for heavy industrial equipment. Produce the finish you need to keep things running smoothly on powertrain components like crankshafts, camshafts and gears. Help keep powertrain coolant streams clean and functioning optimally
Meet or exceed tough vehicle emissions requirements without sacrificing reliability. Easy to use and durable in extreme temperatures, 3M’s Interam™ mat mounts and insulation products let you reduce pollution while maintaining performance.
3M™ Acrylic Foam tapes & 3M™ Dual-lock™ Fasteners can be used in many applications to replace mechanical fastening methods for the attachment of trim and sealing components. Significant weight reductions can be achieved by replacing mechanical clips, wires and channels in addition to benefits such as improved sealing, reduction of corrosion areas and design flexibility.
For your heavy-duty and heavy industrial equipment, 3M sanding products deliver value inside and out, from helping you decrease friction in hydraulic finishing applications to cleaning up rust, coatings and paint.
Seal it and forget it. Protect joints, seams and other penetrable areas against extreme heat, harmful chemicals and other environmental agents quickly, without adding weight. 3M offers a variety of lightweight fast-curing sealing solutions for moisture-proofing and insulating that give you peace of mind.
Even heavy-duty equipment has delicate working parts. Advanced ceramics from 3M help keep equipment cool without eating up valuable space. Flame shields and electrical insulation made with 3M’s ceramic textiles help critical components withstand extreme heat, and 3M’s cooling fillers offer a lighter weight alternative to metal heat sinks for electronic components.
Lightweight strength is the future of industrial design. And ceramics help you shed component pounds, maintain strength and control heat. Advanced ceramics from 3M are tough enough to replace metal parts yet lightweight for better overall performance. Use 3M ceramic fibers to create lightweight heat resistant composites or weave it into fabrics for the ultimate in fire protection.
Our innovative welding safety products enable welding performance and make the welder's job safer and more comfortable. 3M is the supplier of Speedglas Welding Helmets and Systems for eye, face and respiratory protection.
