Reducing product weight can lower manufacturing costs, improve energy consumption, and enhance aesthetics. 3M Design Specialists can help.
Substrates, such as metal and plastic, can have significantly different physical and chemical properties that must be accommodated in new, lighter weight designs. Download the whitepaper to learn more about bonding composite parts.
As design engineers seek out more materials that will aid in lightweighting, challenges with bonding dissimilar materials can arise due to differences in chemical properties. Download the article about 'New Techniques for Joining Plastic to Metal' to explore how manufacturers are using tapes and adhesives to bond dissimilar materials.
Strength. Durability. Longevity. Versatility. 3M adhesives and tapes can be the ideal solution for bonding composites, plastics, and other lightweighting materials.
