IMADE3D PETG Transparent Green

3500

Our Filaments are manufactured by Plasty Mladeč that deals with the production of Plastic profiles and Filaments for 3D printing for FFF technology since 2013.

They are the manufacturers of the well-known brand name ”Filament PM”. 

Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol known as PETG is a water clear material and designed to be very ‘easy to use’ in a range of applications. It is one of the most common polymers used today. It is good for making bottles of water, food packaging and other plastic items. It is one of the most durable materials for 3d printing that is easy to use. It is a mixture of ABS and PLA characteristics as it is more flexible and durable than PLA and easier to print than ABS.

Characteristics:
  • High Strength, medium flexibility and high durability
  • Easy to use
  • Print temperature: 220-250oC
  • Print bed temperature: 50oC-75oC (not necessary if the bed has good adhesive properties)
  • Minimum shrinkage and warping
  • No Soluble

Three things 3D printer enthusiasts should keep in mind when using PETG:

  • PETG is hygroscopic, meaning it absorbs moisture from the air. As this has a negative effect on printing, make sure to store the 3D printer filament in a cool, dry place.
  • PETG is sticky during printing, making this 3D printer filament a poor choice for support structures, but good for layer adhesion. (Just be careful with the print bed!)
  • Though not brittle, PETG scratches more easily than ABS.
