About 3M Design and Specialty Materials

  • The Ingredients of Invention

    A big part of creating great products is determining the right raw materials needed to achieve your desired result. Which materials will help make your product stronger and lighter? The same holds true for inventing a process: How can you assemble a product or coat a surface with greater ease and efficiency?

    We wrestle with these problems every day at 3M. Not just for the products we create, but also for products and processes developed by our customers. Look to 3M and our product and application development expertise for technologies and solutions you may not have access to or haven’t yet developed on your own.
