Automotive rear view mirror with electronic display
Create more than a mirror. Create the ultimate user experience.

eMirror solutions from 3M

Inside or outside of the automobile cabin, the rear-view mirror is becoming a focal point for displaying an array of information to keep drivers safe and informed. More and more, we must answer: what does it take to transform a rear-view mirror into a multi-functional eMirror?

3M can help you enable a seamless transfer between a mirror and a crystal-clear digital display. Our bonding and EMI solutions help create pure design freedom: now, you can place mirror display modules higher on the dashboard, on door panels and A-pillars and across multiple eMirrors. That’s 3M Science, from one end of the eMirror to the other.


Making your eMirrors cooler, brighter, better.

Deliver clearer display information and limit distractions. Control light for enhanced clarity and brightness, reduced heat and higher power efficiency. Maximize signal clarity, in individual eMirror units and across multiple electronics. Expand design possibilities, and improve performance. Keep the entire design solid and stable throughout the life of the vehicle. To get started, choose your challenge below.

    3M Science lets you switch seamlessly from mirror mode to display mode. Delivering clearer, brighter signals and limiting distractions. In full mirror mode, with back light off, 3M™ Reflective Polarizing Mirror film reflects as proficiently as a conventional mirror and because it is optically flat, the image won’t be distorted. When the backlight is on with film and LCD transmission axes aligned, >90% of light is transmitted, significantly boosting the brightness of the image display.

    Seamlessesly improve safety

    Now you can make sure even the mirror is a reflection of the quality of the vehicles you design and produce. While your eMirror designs can deliver safety features such as blind spot monitoring and alerts with a wider field of view, our proprietary technology enables a safe viewing experience. 3M™ Reflective Polarizing Mirror film allows you to create dual-function mirrors and displays that deliver immersive experiences with optimal clarity and brightness.

    Efficiency on bright display

    A combination of core 3M technologies allows you maximize brightness and contrast in your eMirror designs without added power. Our engineered light management films can capture and recycle unused light back into eMirror displays. And optically clear adhesives (OCAs) optimize and maintain the clarity of transparent lenses and display covers.

    Performance that lasts

    Electromagnetic interference (EMI), heat and vibration can impact the reliability and durability of even your best eMirror designs. Protect your eMirrors with a range of 3M technologies starting from EMI grounding and shielding materials that optimize signal-to-noise ratio to thermally conductive adhesives that help to dissipate heat and thin, lightweight cushioning and damping foams that absorb shock and vibration. Our wide range of proven technologies can help you optimize the performance of your electronic mirror displays to keep critical safety information front and center.
