Why Printing with PETG is highly preferable over PLA and ABS materials

PET & PETG Plastics 

  • PETG is a “glycol” modified version of PET, Which is easy to print.

  • PETG properties lie between ABS and PLA where it is much easier to print, high strength and its glass transition temperature are around 80-100 degrees celsius which makes it an ideal choice of printing material without compromising strength and temperature resistance.

  • Unlike ABS and PLA, PETG is rigid, chemically resistant, fatigue resistant, water-resistant and prints with negligible warpage.

  • These properties make PETG an exceptional choice of material without compromising strength, rigidity, printability and chemical resistant.

  • No need of heat chamber to print this material

Material Handling and Chemical/Mechanical Properties of PETG 

Health Effects 
  • Vapours formed when polymer is heated may be irritating to the eyes.

  • Heated polymer can cause thermal burns

  • Inhalation of gas fumes/dust can be irritating to the respiratory system when polymer is heated

  • Burns should be treated as thermal burns 

  • put out fires with Co2, water or sand

Safety Measures While Printing Process

  • Avoid breathing gases from the molten filament. 

  • Ensure adequate ventilation while printing 

  • Avoid contact with molten material
