Masters of Innovation

When Neil Armstrong was the first man to walk on the moon, his equipment included a 3M product. Anyone around the world driving a catalyst-equipped Ford, VW or Opel car can be sure that a 3M material is used for exhaust purification. Wherever parents use patented disposable diapers for their babies, these are often kept securely fixed by a 3M adhesive closure. Nobody working in office and administration could do without Post-it Notes today. 3M Scotch-Brite Products make housework easier, while manufacturers treat their carpets with Scotchgard Protector. License plates and number signs reflect at night thanks to 3M Scotchlite Reflective Sheeting. 3M Brightness Enhancement Film brightens up laptop computer monitors around the world to improve their readability. Health care professionals rely on 3M products to treat diseases and 3M technologies are also used for environmental protection.
