PETG (Glycol modified Polyethelene Terephthalate) is a very strong and sturdy filament.? It is perfect for building water bottles, automotive trim pieces and car parts.? It is also used for producing mechanical parts due to its fatigue resistant properties.

Best settings for successful printing:
|Printing / Extrusion temperature||220 to 250 degrees|
|Bed Temperature||60 ?to 90 degrees|
PETG is a biodegradable material.? It is renewable and is requires some ventilation when printing as the off gasses are noticeable.
PETG must be printed on a medium to high temperature heated bed to avoid warping.
|Transparency (colour dependent)||2/10 to 8/10|
|Reel Size||200h x 65w|
|Weight / metres||1kg / 340 metres (approx)|
|Filament width||1.75mm +/- 2mm|

Like any 3D printing a well ventilated space is preferred and good storage is the key to a good shelf life of your filament.? All our filament is shipped in a vac sealed bag containing a small desiccant satchel.? When opening your bag a clean cut along the top edge will allow you reuse that bag again if you do not finish the entire reel in 1 go.
PETG is like PLA and PPLA for post processing.? Sanding and painting is possible to get a perfect finished look.
Aurarum PETG is printer agnostic and as such is suitable for all brands including Flashforge, RepRap, Creality, Artillery, MakerBot, Ultimaker, Makergear, Up! … and many others.
