PETG, derived from PET (Polyethylene Methacrylate), is a petro-sourced plastic with great qualities. It's a significant competitor to ABS because it's also very resistant. Also, it's as easy to use as PLA, and it releases almost no odor. PET is the plastic that everyone uses every day - it's applied to make bottles (water, sodas ...), disposable food containers, thermoformed packaging plastics, plastic cards, cushions, or clothing. Post-processing of this material remains simple.
Due to its significant and many advantages, PETG is a very popular filament among both hobbyists and professional makers. It can be described as an improved version of a combination of ABS and PLA. What is more, PETG can be 100% recycled, so it's eco-friendly and more sustainable than other materials. Also, PETG is very lightweight, durable, strong, and can handle intense pressure and impact. It's an ideal choice if you need a durable and easy-to-use material for making parts of other products. PETG is more flexible than PET, ABS, and PLA, and it doesn't tend to shrink. In our catalog, you will find diverse PETG filaments in different colors. We offer Devil Design and Fiberlogy products, which will undoubtedly meet all your expectations and needs.
PETG can be used for many applications
PETG is a very universal filament, which can be applied in numerous fields. For example, it's excellent for producing transparent packages. Obtaining transparent products can be carried out by setting a low number of external shells (between 1 and 2) as well as a layer thickness greater than 200 microns. Also, PETG can be used for creating products intended for food contact.
PETG filaments available at Botland.store have FDA standards on food compatibility. Besides, they are characterized by excellent chemical resistance allowing the use of cleaning products. Moreover, these filaments have high dimensional accuracy and aren't very sensitive to shrinkage. This gives the possibility of printing boxes with lids.
Easy PET post-processing
Another application of PETG is the possibility to print a part adapted to a particular need or to set up screw systems. Unlike PLA or ABS, PET can be pierced without generating chips and without melting. Its mechanical strength will also be an advantage in many other applications.
PETG combines exciting features that allow it to be widely used in 3D printing. Using it as a filament will be a great idea, whether you are an expert or a beginner. However, printing recommendations should be followed in order to avoid any difficulties and errors. Feel free to contact our customer service to ask a question regarding the printing with PETG.
