Non-Woven Materials

Did You Know?


Loud and unpleasant noise is annoying and can pose a grave threat to our health. That’s why, 3M has revolutionized acoustics engineering that created nonwovens, viscoelastic polymers, and other materials to absorb sound, lessen vibration, and control undesirable noise.

These are installed in cars to ensure a quieter passenger compartment. They are also in computer disk drives to reduce the irritating sounds and help increase access speed and storage capacity.

3M nonwovens and viscoelastic polymers ensure noise reduction, better communication and protected hearing.
