3M Solutions for Automotive Interiors


Interiors for today and for the road ahead

The vehicle interior is the focal point of tomorrow’s vehicles. Passenger comfort is now passenger experience, whether the vehicle is electrified, autonomous or shared. That means that stunning design is just the start. It means more durable, quieter, safer and more sustainable automotive interiors that complement the vehicles and their occupants.


As the manufacturing landscape evolves, design freedom and production efficiencies are essential to automotive interiors. Our solutions can help you optimize package space, and allow you to reliably attach components in more places for new and enhanced interior experiences. We can also help you work better through faster cure times, improved repositionability in a range of environments, more efficient conversion of products through features such as pre-applied adhesives.
