Ask the average person on the street what polyethylene terephthalate glycol (PETG) is, and the odds are you’ll get a blank look and a shrug of the shoulders. But PETG uses are many and can be found in numerous household products and shops.
Everything from lipsticks to sunglasses and machinery guards to supermarket trolley shelters use PETG – it really does have a myriad of uses.
Eagles Plastics – PETG uses
PETG is a clear sheet product, similar to glass and PVC, but is also tough – a property it retains at low temperatures – and fire resistant. It also has a high level of chemical resistance so it has been approved for use with foodstuffs and in the medical and pharmaceutical sectors.
Easy to print on..
It is also easy to machine and fabricate and it can be printed on, which makes PETG uses ideal for one of its most common products – point-of-sale stands. Point-of-sale stands are the brightly coloured, eye-catching stands that you often see close to the checkouts in supermarkets and newsagents, usually selling big brands and convincing us, the consumers, that we need to buy something we never realised we wanted in the first place.
Point-of-sale stands are a boon to shopkeepers, and PETG is ideal because it can be crafted into any shape and any colour, but it is still hardwearing. You can also do more with PETG uses than with metal, which is the traditional material that point-of-sale stands have been made from.
