Altuglas®, a partner of the film “Mood Indigo” of Michel Gondry.

PARIS, April 26, 2013, PRNewswire - Altuglas International, a subsidiary of the Arkema Group is a partner of the film Mood Indigo coming to theater today. This is the film adaptation of the eponymous book of the french author Boris Vian published in 1947.

Michel Gondry, the famous Director has swarmed futuristic and surreal ideas. Altuglas International brought his personal touch by providing nanostructured Altuglas ShieldUp produced in France at St Avold (57) for Limovian, the fully transparent limousine.

This is Michel Gondry who imagined this Transparent limousine. Dubbed LimoVian (The Limousine of Boris Vian), the amazing car crosses the movie like Chloe (Audrey Tautou), Colin (Romain Duris) and Chick (Omar Sy), a full-fledged character.

More than six months of work were required to design team from Peugeot to assembly the limo. They grafted pieces and accessories Peugeot 404 and realize its interior.

The transparent parts were made in Altuglas ShieldUp. 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. Altuglas ShieldUp is the result of 10 years of Research and won last year’s prize Potier for innovation.

Heated to 180° C for fifteen minutes to be softened, it has either been forced under vacuum or blown with compressed air (8 bar). It took many attempts for the plastic transformer ABP to obtain the ideal shape for each part.

On theatre in France, Belgium and Switzerland since Wednesday April 24th. Furthermore Romain Duris, Audrey Tautou and Omar Sy, Gad Elmaleh, Aissa Maiga, Charlotte Le Bon, Philippe and Alain Chabat Torreton are showing this film
