Altuglas: a star is born

Boris Vian's Limousine", the "Limovian" created by Peugeot for Michel Gondry's latest film, "L'écume des jours", is entirely transparent. And it is Altuglas International, a subsidiary of the Arkema Group, who created its body from nanostructured Altuglas® ShieldUp plates. 

The acrylic glass produced in Saint-Avold (57) combines two components: PMMA and an elastomer structured at the nanometric scale. It is the result of 10 years of research and won last year's Pierre Potier award for innovation.
