Discover the soul behind 3M™ respiratory protection science.

The soul behind 3M Science.

When lives are at stake, it’s not a quest for new compounds but the desire to protect human bonds that drive 3M Science. Providing world-class safety products is as much a reality as it is a necessity. We dig deeper, reach further, and push the boundaries of possibility—providing workers with more comfort, breathability, functionality, style, and of course, the peace of mind they so rightly deserve.

Being focused on much more than safety is what ultimately ensures 3M workers make it home to their families-each and every night.

And to us, having this mindset – this soul – is the value of science in its most purest form.
