It all started with sandpaper—3M's first product. 3M revolutionized the process of vehicle surface preparation when it introduced its 3M™ Wetordry™ abrasive in 1915. And, in 1926, 3M invented masking tape specifically to enable vehicle paint shops to achieve razor-sharp separations in two-tone paint jobs.

Acoustic insulation products; Acrylic foam and very high bond tapes; Adhesives and other fastening systems; Cabin air filtration products; Catalytic converters mounting systems; Decorative and protective film products; Diesel particulate filters; Electrical and lighting components; Fluoroelastomers for hoses, seals and gaskets; Friction materials for powertrain components; Identification products for badging and nameplates; Microspheres for lightening plastics; Noise damping products; Plant safety and environmental products; Security labeling and identification materials.
