ST PAUL - 3M will unveil its new Thinsulate Light Series nonwoven insulation at the upcoming Performance Days, the functional fabric show being held at Messe München in Munich, Germany from March 20 to 21.

3M Thinsulate Light Series is described as the most lightweight insulation product in the 3M portfolio and, providing exceptional warmth while remaining thin (4mm thick) and wash durable.

As the latest development, the Light Series stands with other notable recent launches from the Minnesota-based company, including 3M Thinsulate Flowable Featherless Insulation, a high-loft insulation that’s comprised of at least 85% post-consumer recycled content.

“At 3M, we’re very proud of our science-backed achievements, specifically our ability to propel the science of insulation forward,” said Totti Liang, Asia-Pacific sales manager for 3M. “Our developments within the 3MTM Thinsulate Insulation line of products is a testament to an unending focus on enhancing performance while building thinner, more versatile textiles.”

3M Thinsulate insulation includes a range of products crafted to include post-consumer recycled content that are certified by the bluesign System, Oeko-Tex, and the Global Recycled Standard.

The portfolio also reflects 3M’s focus on its strategic sustainability framework. The company’s global headquarters is powered by 100% renewable electricity, and over 50% of the company’s global electricity comes from renewable sources.

3M has also pledged $1 billion over 20 years to accelerate environmental goals, including achieving carbon neutrality across operations by 2050, with a 50% reduction of Scope 1 and Scope 2 market-based greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 (versus a baseline year of 2019); reducing water usage, indexed to net sales, by 25% across all facilities by 2030 (versus 2019); and reducing dependence on virgin fossil-based plastics by 125 million pounds by 2025.
