Materials > PETG
PETG is a strong and durable plastic-like ABS but harmless to human health. PETG is made with one of the most common synthetic materials - polyethene Terephthalate (PET), modified with Glycol. Thanks to this, PETG is much more rigid, stiffer, more precise and easier to use in 3D printing and machining than PET.
PETG has applications in various industries due to being resistant to heat
impact and solvents. It is widely used for packaging (both retail and medical)
advertising displays and electronic insulators.
It is also widely used in 3D printing since glycol prevents the problems associated with PET
such as overheating and becoming cloudy and fragile. It is also possible to sterilise PETG items. With good adhesion between layers
minimal deformation during printing
good resistance in low-temperature environments
chemical resistance against bases and acids
and an absence of odour while printing
PETG is becoming the favoured material for 3D printing.
Polyethene terephthalate glycol is ideal for producing flexible parts with good resistance to shocks
such as pressure-clad items
protective factors or food containers.
