3M delivers solutions for nearly any challenge related to designing vehicles that perform smoothly, quickly and flawlessly in the most important place: on the road. Check them out here.
Design freedom, as well as confidence in the performance of your chassis and wheel designs, requires deep materials expertise – from high-temperature seals, gaskets and o-rings, to low-permeation fuel hoses that help reduce automotive emissions. Unlike anyone else, 3M reaches across industries to help you incorporate a family of fluorinated elastomers, fluoroplastics and compounds that survive heat, harsh chemicals and bone-crushing pressures.
Our 3M™ Friction Shims help answer the demand for maximum power density – enhancing friction to transmit higher loads while enabling lightweight designs. This technology is ideal for steering and chassis designs that meet specifications for weight, torque, power density and efficiency of assembly. 3M™ Friction Shims reliably transmit up to 4X higher torque than conventional systems without requiring modifications to joint design.
The 3M™ Wheel Weight System combines conformable wheel-balancing material and industry-leading 3M™ Automotive Attachment Tape technology to provide an all-in-one wheel weight balancing system that delivers secure attachments in less time.
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.
