Uniti , a Swedish start-up company, are launching their high performance electric city car on 7th December 2017! The launch event will be held in the future manufacturing facility in Landskrona, Sweden. Uniti are expecting over 2,000 people, including global media and stakeholders in the automotive and technology industry.
Scott Bader’s Crestabond® range of MMA structural adhesives were used in the prototype manufacturing process to structurally bond composite parts. Our MMA adhesives were chosen as they do not require any primer, minimal surface preparation is needed and they offer rapid curing at room temperature. The Crestabond® M1 and M7 range are all dispensed from cartridges using a manual or pneumatic gun and applied directly onto the parts. Uniti also use our Polyester-based extrudable tooling compound Poly-Fair® T28 to manufacture their plugs for various mould production. Poly-Fair® T28 offers sufficient flexibility which prevents cracks, is easy and fast to machine, produces shavings (not dust) and is dimensionally stable after 24 hours at room temperature.
Gary Coldwell, Scott Bader’s adhesives sales development manager, will be exhibiting our full range of adhesives at the launch event whilst also offering information on our unique ownership structure.
Uniti’s modern approach to automotive manufacture has resulted in their electric city car being manufactured from composite materials; this ensures their manufacturing process is fully automated, scalable and significantly less impactful on the environment. The design of the electric city car takes a similarly modern and environmentally friendly approach, with a smart head up display, digitalized interaction points and electronic steering.
