To create PETG, glycol (G) is added to PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) at a molecular level. Also, PETG is known for its durability and most importantly, for its 3D printing flexibility. Even though PETG is an oil-based polymer, meaning it is not biodegradable like PLA is still 100% recyclable.
Polyethylene terephthalate glycol (PETG or PET-G) is a thermoplastic polyester. Also, it provides significant chemical resistance. It is durable and has excellent formability for manufacturing. As a storage solution, PETG can be easily vacuumed. It can be pressure-formed as well as heat-bent. PETG has low forming temperatures. Furthermore, PETG is popular for consumer and commercial applications. It is used for 3D printing and other heat-forming manufacturing techniques. This material combines the ease of use of PLA and the strength of ABS.
PLA is the most popular and affordable material used in 3D printing. Due to its plant-based components, it is an eco-friendly thermoplastic. You will notice a glossy type finishing to your 3D printed project. PLA+ filament is easy to use. It is also considered to go-to 3D printing filament for household prints. Our PLA is odorless.
PLA bio-plastic enables products to be produced with high bio-based content and a reduced carbon footprint. Our PLA+ offers a 75% reduction in carbon footprint compared to most traditional fossil-based plastics. PLA filament is produced from renewable feedstocks like sugarcane, corn, sugar beet, and cassava.
PLA+ filament is a great first material to use as you are learning about 3D printing because it is easy to print, very inexpensive, and creates parts that can be used for a wide variety of applications.
How does this work?
To purchase this 10kg PLA+ & PETG filament pack, you will have to pick a minimum of 10 rolls.
