Named “Car of the Year” at the Geneva motor show in March 2017, acclaimed by the Association française de la presse automobile (AFPA), crowned the most eco-friendly SUV with an Auto Environnement MAAF award… The appeal of the Peugeot 3008 keeps on growing. What has hit the jackpot in particular is its modern-day, robust but sleek look. Which is where Altuglas® comes into play: the door pillars are adorned with profiled parts made of grade HT 121 Altuglas® PMMA.

Altuglas® acrylic glass, an ultra-sleek material par excellence

When it comes to look and design, our acrylic glass wins on all fronts. Over and above its resistance to the most extreme conditions (temperature, UV, abrasion), Altuglas® is indeed unrivaled in terms of depth of color, transparency and brightness. The automotive industry is actually not the only sector to use this high performance resin: many contemporary artists and architects are particularly keen on it.


By associating their names with one of the most high profile cars of the year, Altuglas International and Arkema more than ever are establishing their status as designers of materials and innovative solutions. This collaboration with the lion-badge carmarker also underscores the growing presence of Arkema products in our everyday lives, products that make our lives both safer and more comfortable.
