We understand working under challenging conditions in harsh and remote geographies; mineral extraction is in our DNA. (Mining is our second ‘M’.) We use our deep industry knowledge and hard-won expertise to tap into innovative solutions that can be used to help accelerate your progress. Our first-hand knowledge of mining, and oil and gas challenges helps us develop products and services that protect your assets, your workers, your profits and the environment for years to come: Take microscopic glass bubbles, an additive that can make polymer foams so strong they can withstand the crushing pressure associated with deep ocean oil wells. Or our highly reflective materials, designed to enhance the visibility of the workers in dim light conditions when illuminated by a light source. Or our purification systems for amine gas that ensures you get improved efficiency while helping protect process equipment and reduce maintenance costs. The next generation of mining, oil and gas is here, and with 3M, you can be sure you’re on the forefront.
