High performance PETG variants for 3D printing you may be overlooking

Manufacturers and suppliers are rethinking PETG - the ubiquitous, often underrated yet cost-effective family of copolyester materials. PETG is a tried and true solution offering a solid set of general properties to serve as the basis for applications requiring chemical and water resistance, electrostatic protection and more, with low warp and translucent appearance, if desired. Let us help you discover how the latest high performance PETG variants may benefit your operation.

Main Features

  • Developed for high strength and limited elongation
  • Well known for its high stiffness, hardness, low warp, and toughness, as well as good impact strength
  • Amorphous thermoplastic copolyester prints clear
  • Easy to print, fully 3ntr printer compatible
  • Variants which include:
    • ESD-PETG: an ESD-safe compound designed for use in applications that require electrostatic discharge protection
    • TECH-G: a modified, odorless PETG offering clear transparent color

Example Applications

  • Parts requiring low warp and good layer adhesion
  • Electronics and consumer products requiring electrostatic protection
  • Low-cost, light weight, yet stable packaging and containers

Part from a U.S. electronics manufacturer, printed by Plural with ESD PETG to meet electrostatic discharge specifications. This part fit — right out of the printer — with no post processing required.
