PETG

PETG is a transparent copolyester material with very high impact and chemical resistance. In sheet form it is easily fabricated and vacuum formed with a wide range of applications. It's a cost effective material and is a common substitute for Acrylic. PETG sheet remains clear during fabrication, heating and vacuum forming without whitening. Surface scratches can be easily removed and it is highly durable. It forms clear, strong bonds with commercially available cements and solvents. PETG sheet is ideal for various printing methodologies.
