Polyethylene terephthalate glycol(PETG)

Polyethylene terephthalate glycol(PETG)

Introduction

  • Polyethylene Terephthalate (with a glycol modification)
  • Combines the most useful characteristics of ABS filament (the rigidity and mechanical properties for functional parts) with the ease of printing that PLA filament affords.
  • Hygroscopic (So should be stored in a cool, dry place and dried)
  • Excellent impact resistance and machinability
  • PETG = PET + Glycol.(PETG is of the same chemical composition as PET but with the addition of glycol, addition of glycol to create PETG removes the hazing effect seen during heating and also prevents an undesirable crystallization effect that causes standard PET to become brittle)
  •  Easier to scratch, more susceptible to damaging UV light, these drawbacks are relatively minor when compared to superior heat handling, shock resistance, and comfortable grip.
