Know Your Filament - PETG

PET-G

PET-G is very strong and durable and virtually unbreakable. Translucent in appearance, when printed using optimal settings, produces a near “clear” print. A heated print bed is recommended when printing with PET-G to prevent warping although this material prints naturally with low warp characteristics.

KEY FEATURES:

    • High transparency
    • Very good mechanical properties as regards rigidity, hardness, and impact resistance
    • Chemical resistant
    • High dimensional accuracy
    • order free printing
