What is PETG?
PETG, which stands for Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol is a clear/opal thermoplastic that is made from thermoplastic polymers. PETG material can become mouldable when heated, and solidifies once cooling – making it excellent for moulding into different projects and shapes.

Its exceptional clarity and formability allow the material to be moulded and shaped into many different project components easily, with little labour involved. In addition to this, the thermoplastic can be vacuum-formed, printed, bonded and polished and therefore works great for promotional purposes. PETG properties also including being sterile, strong and having a high impact resistance.
