3M Enters the Aerospace Industry

Wednesday, March 31st, 2010

Believe it or not, 3M, the makers of Scotch Tape and a wide variety of other products, has just entered the aerospace industry.

The company will, in the 2nd quarter of this year, close a deal to buy out MTI PolyFab. MTI PolyFab specializes in creating thermal and acoustical insulation products used in airplanes.

That means 3M could possibly become a major contributor when it comes to soundproofing in the aerospace industry. We can’t wait to see how this plays out!
