Polyethylene terephthalate, commonly referred to as PETG or PET-G, is a thermoplastic polyester with outstanding chemical resistance, durability, and excellent manufacturing formability. Due to the low forming temperature, PETG can be easily vacuum and pressure formed as well as heat-bent formed. This makes it very popular for consumer and commercial applications involving 3D printing or other thermoforming manufacturing techniques. Additionally, PETG is well suited for manufacturing techniques such as die cutting, routing and bending.
Compared to acrylic or polycarbonate, PETG is structurally strong and cost-effective. The unique properties of PETG sheet make it the first choice for impact-resistant glass and high-strength display scenarios. PETG sheets are suitable for digital printing and are suitable for product materials, displays and signage.
PETG has good sheet processing performance, low material cost and extremely wide range of uses, such as vacuum forming, folding boxes, and printing.
Due to its ease of thermoforming and chemical resistance, PETG has a variety of uses. It is commonly used in single-use and reusable drinking bottles, edible oil containers, and FDA-compliant food storage containers. However, PETG packaging materials can also be used in the entire medical field. PETG's rigid structure allows it to withstand harsh sterilization processes, making it the perfect material for medical implants as well as pharmaceutical and medical device packaging.
PETG is an excellent material for 3D printing, and with its good processability and low material cost, it is quickly becoming a customer favorite. PETG screen printing easily has excellent layer adhesion and is odorless when printing. PETG also has very low shrink properties, allowing larger prints than materials such as PLA or ABS. At the same time, PETG sheets are very strong and have very good chemical resistance. This enables the PETG sheet to withstand high temperatures during printing, which is in line with food safety applications and applications in some special industries.
PETG plastic is often the material of choice for point-of-sale stands and other retail displays. Because PETG sheet is easy to manufacture in a variety of shapes and colors, businesses often use PETG material to create eye-catching signage that attracts customers. Additionally, PETG is easy to print, making custom complex images an affordable option.
Although PETG is naturally transparent, it can easily change color during processing. In addition, the biggest disadvantage of PETG Sheet is that the price is much more expensive than other materials such as PVC Sheet and APET Sheet.
