Deliver powerful and immersive experiences – starting with electronics bonding solutions to hold it all together. Stay connected with 3M.
We’re witnessing a rapid expansion of IoT-connected smart devices. From speakers and cameras to smartwatches, wireless headphones and beyond, smart devices are revolutionizing how we live, work and play. And the innovation has just begun. Studies predict double-digit growth in the segment over the next 5 years.
Designing and assembling smart devices poses unique bonding challenges. Home devices must reflect the style of the homeowner, adding beauty as well as function. Wearables must withstand impact, repel liquids and weather harsh environments. There is no template for such a wide range of devices; the only limit is your imagination.
Tackle tough electronic device assembly challenges with a broad continuum of electronics bonding solutions from 3M. You change people’s lives; we’re here to help.
Smart speakers and smart displays are the beating heart of the modern, connected home. They manage multiple devices and keep us connected as we work, cook and do just about everything else. These devices include curved surfaces with complex form factors and low-surface-energy substrates. They need flexible, versatile bonding solutions to help strike a balance of functionality and aesthetics.
Electronic adhesive tapes from 3M can bond a range of difficult surfaces and substrates in speakers and displays such as glass, metal, fabric, plastic and foam. They create a sturdy, permanent seal while delivering high impact resistance that meets industry drop test requirements.
Bond complex form factors in speaker mesh, display screens and more.
A smart home begins with smart security. Smart (baby) monitors, video doorbells, wireless security camera systems inside and out – these devices help us stay alert 24/7. Cameras and electronic locks require design flexibility to seamlessly blend into the background while delivering consistent, reliable performance. Anything less won’t do.
Secure indoor and outdoor security devices with electronics bonding solutions from 3M. They provide reliable shock absorption and protection from water and UV rays. Robust adhesion to rubber and TPU, high shear strength and a pull force of over 50 N help provide a sense of security for homeowners.
Robots help free us from the household grind and enable our fast-paced modern lifestyles. From vacuuming to washing windows and cleaning pools, today’s robots can do it all – and must be built tough.
3M offers advanced electronics bonding materials that can join difficult substrates while helping guard against impact, water, chemicals and more. Our double coated tapes supply high adhesion and shock resistance to silicone components like anti-collision strips, while double coated tissue tapes are ideal for LSE surfaces and textured surfaces. We’ll help you protect your robots from many hazards of the home.
Drones go where other devices cannot. They take breathtaking aerial photographs and survey hard-to-reach landscapes. Strong, durable and lightweight electronics assembly adhesives that hold firm during a crash are the backbone of drone design.
Bonding materials from 3M provide impact resistance, vibration damping and anti-lifting properties at a fraction of the weight of mechanical fasteners. Their excellent UV stability and high temperature strength helps drones withstand direct sunlight. We also offer tapes designed for thin bond lines to provide shock absorption and sealing for remote control display screens. Fly high with 3M.
Smartwatches are our constant companions. They manage our media, track our vitals and keep us connected all day long. Walking, running, even swimming – smartwatches go wherever we go. They must balance functionality, durability and comfort, from the battery to the wristband and everything in between.
3M offers high-strength tapes to stabilize smartwatch components during physical activity. Chemically resistant adhesives help bond metal to glass while sealing out water, sweat, sunscreen and skin oils. Liquid adhesives combine optimal viscosity, bonding strength and low-temperature curing to facilitate electronic assembly.
Guard sensitive components against impact, water, chemicals and more.
Everyone's life has a soundtrack. Hearables and TWS (true wireless stereo) devices – earbuds, over-the-ear headphones and more – let us enjoy the music of life anytime. They require versatile, flexible bonding materials to join complex components and help protect devices against drops and falls, skin oils, sweat and cosmetics.
Electronic adhesives from 3M are designed to provide shock absorption and chemical resistance to even the smallest components. Strong adhesion to plastics, silicone and other substrates expands material selection for enhanced design freedom. Good jetting performance, fast curing and long stability facilitate processing and manufacturing.
Attach small and intricate components with flexible and versatile bonding solutions.
AR/VR (augmented reality/virtual reality) devices make the impossible possible. With the flip of a switch, VR headsets and goggles let us walk with dinosaurs and watch stars explode on the edge of Andromeda. Immersion is key – and nothing breaks that immersion like a poor view or uncomfortable fit.
3M provides a selection of tapes and liquid adhesives to bond lenses and curved surfaces in AR/VR devices. They provide excellent stability and impact resistance to metal and glass lens components. Our double coated tapes attach curved pieces to foam, plastic and other low-surface-energy substrates, opening the door to virtually any shape you can imagine.
Join lenses, curved surfaces and difficult substrates with confidence.
