Overview

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

Compatibility: All BCN3D Printers.

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
