Altuglas Partners with Artistic Event in France
Altuglas International, a subsidiary of the Arkema Group is a partner of the French artistic event dedicated to contemporary art: Nuit Blanche-Metz in Metz, France. Some of the art-works presented at that event feature Altuglas acrylic glass produced in the French industrial site of Saint-Avold.
The art-work "Mechanical Field" performed by Vincent Leroy diverts Altuglas acrylic glass to its traditional applications in the image of the brand. It captures the reflective properties of the material and its flexibility. The herbs in Altuglas Fluo, such an army of clones to multiply to infinity, take possession of the square of the Centre Pompidou in Metz. A giant "grass" (1700 strands of 1.50 m in height) is repeated identically.
Another art-work featuring Altuglas products is Peugeot LimoVian: the fully « transparent » limousine. Here, the nanostructured Altuglas ShieldUp is used. This acrylic (polymethylmethacrylate) combines two components – PMMA and an elastomer, structured at the nanoscale – which provides complete transparency while optimizing other properties such as mechanical and chemical resistance.
The artistic event will take place in Metz on October 5 and 6, 2013.
