PETG (Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol Comonomer) is a relatively new 3D Printing filament. Commonly found in the food industry for food containers and plastic water bottles, PETG offers great impact resistance, chemical resistance, and transparency. PETG is a great filament to print with as it offers the best of both words when compared to PLA and ABS. PETG is easy to to print with, just like PLA, and offers similar mechanical properties when compared to ABS. Plus, there is little to no odor emitted when printing with PETG. More and more 3D Printing users are turning to PETG for their mechanical parts as it offers the best characteristics of PLA and ABS.
Note* This polymer is naturally hygroscopic, meaning it will absorb water if not properly sealed. Please store your PETG in a zip-loc bag or air tight container when not in use.
