PETG Filament printing string for 3D printers.
Polyethylene terephthalate glycol
Commonly known as PETG or PET-G, is a thermoplastic polyester that provides chemical resistance, durability and excellent processability. It is very popular for consumer and commercial applications that include 3D printing or other hot manufacturing technologies.
- Weather resistance
- Resistance to chemicals (acids, alkalis, salts)
- Quality and glossy surface
- Good abrasion resistance
- Optimized for FDM (FFF) 3D printers
- Excellent adhesion to heated board, Kapton, BuildTak, glass, etc.
- Low shrinkage on cooling
- Perfect adhesion of layers
- High thermal stability up to 70 C
- Compatible with PVA supports
- Generally easy to print
- When printing odorless
Advantages of PETG
Resistant. Virtually unbreakable. Affordable. Suitable for functional prototypes. In general, PETG plastic is suitable for food contact, where it is commonly used for food containers and beverage bottles.
PETG is recyclable.
PETG is an excellent material for use in modern 3D printers.
With the right print settings, the PETG filament prints easily, has excellent layer adhesion and is odorless.
It also has very low shrinkage properties, which allows for larger prints than, for example, ABS.
At the same time, it is extremely strong and has good chemical resistance. This allows him to print objects that can withstand high temperatures, food safe applications and exceptional impact.
What is the difference between PET and PETG?
Although these compounds look similar, at the molecular level they are fundamentally different materials. PET is the result of a combination of two monomers.
However, PETG also includes glycol, which gives it different chemical properties than PET.
PETG is less brittle and more flexible than PET, making it ideal for bottles. It also has better impact resistance.
Pet-g adheres well to most common printing surfaces, sometimes too much. When printing on PEI or glass, we recommend using kores stick glue, hairspray or 3Dlac.
Our PET-G is optimized for the "Prusament PET-G" print profile.
