PET-G

CLEAR FUNCTIONALITY

With PET-G properties you can make even more functional prototypes and end-use parts. This is possible thanks to its rigidity, which is better than that of ABS. Thanks to glycol compound, the material is more durable and less susceptible to shrinkage. Chemical resistance to acids, salts, and alkaline substances also widen the spectrum of its applications.

The translucent and non-translucent colour options available allow you to create amazing prints for different purposes. You can apply it to electronics, prototyping, and decorations. Choose the application you want to see the advantages of our PET-G.

APPLICATIONS:

  • END-USE PARTS: containers, holders
  • PROTOTYPES: bottles, packaging
  • ELECTRONICS: covers, cases, products containing diodes
  • DECORATIONS: lamps, glass-resembling elements
  • JEWELLERY: rings, necklaces, bracelets

How to print?

The following parameters are only suggested print settings for this material. To ensure the best print quality, it is necessary to choose the appropriate settings for a specific printer and printing conditions.

 

Nozzle Temperature 230-250°C
Bed Temperature 90°C
Closed chamber not required
Fan 0-25%
Flowrate 95-105%
Printing Speed 35-60 mm/s
Surface masking tape
Retraction (direct) 2-3 mm
Retraction (bowden) 3-5 mm
Retraction Speed 20-45 mm/s
Notes Due to the strong adhesion to it, it is not recommended to print directly on the surface of the table or glass, as it may damage it. We recommend using masking tape.
