Versatile & Technical Material – PET-G (Polyethylene terephthalate glycol-modified) is a polyester thermoplastic characterised by a good balance of tensile strength and elongation at break.

It’s high resistance to water and chemicals makes it the material of choice for water-tight containers and protective cases.

PET-G is a versatile technical material, as easy to print as PLA, but with an improved balance of mechanical, chemical and thermal properties.

 

Good balance of strength and ductility – PET-G parts are as strong as those made with PLA but offer a better mechanical profile. PET-G is not brittle, which means that it will not snap abruptly if pulled or bended, on the contrary, it will progressively bend and stretch until reaching it maximum elongation limit of 23%.

 

Applications

  • Parts in contact with salts, acids and alkalis
  • Functional prototypes and mechanical parts
  • Waterproof applications
  • Structural parts subject to mild stress
  • Snap-fit joints
  • Commonly used in beverage bottles

Bed adhesion:

To ensure good bed adhesion use Magigoo.

 

Recommendations:

Plastics absorb moisture from the air, it is recommended to keep the PET-G spools in a box or airtight container with desiccant to keep them dry.

For a better print quality use an enclosure.

PET-G emits low levels of gasses and particles when printed.

We recommend printing it in a well-ventilated area.
