PETG Filament 1.75mm
Are you getting bored with PLA or ABS as your go to print material?
Maybe you’re looking for something that is stronger than PLA, but is easier to use than ABS?
If so, then rigid.ink PETG 1.75mm filament is likely to become your new favourite filament.
rigid.ink PETG is a co-polymer that combines Polyethylene Terephthalate (the material that most plastic water bottles are made of) with Glycol. The result is an extremely tough and durable material that’s easy to use. In a way, rigid.ink PETG is the best of both worlds. It combines the strength and rigidity of ABS with the relative ease of use that comes with printing with PLA. Commercially, PETG has literally thousands of uses.
The strength of PETG makes it a natural for food packaging. In addition, its natural chemical non reactivity means that it is invaluable in medical applications. It is also used in signs, orthotic and prosthetic devices and a wide variety of machined uses.
PETG is certainly strong. In fact, you’d be hard pressed to break it in half. This means that if you need to print an object that that is highly break resistant, you’d be hard pressed to beat rigid.ink PETG filament.
At the same time, rigid.ink PETG is also very flexible, more so than both PLA and ABS. It’s also more malleable. This means that rigid.ink PETG works well as a prototyping material and in end use applications. Its strength also means that it can stand up to any number of post-printing processing techniques, including, sanding, grinding, cutting and machining.
When printing, rigid.ink PETG filament exhibits incredible layer adhesion. The strong bond between the layers of your printed objects means that rigid.ink PETG exhibits very little warping from shrinkage as it cools. This makes rigid.ink PETG ideal for printing larger objects.
rigid.ink PETG is very water resistant. This makes it an excellent choice for outdoor applications. It also offers great chemical resistance, standing up well to both alkaline and acidic environments. Finally, rigid.ink PETG is very impact resistant. This makes it a viable alternative to PMMA and Polycarbonate.
A quick look at the data stats demonstrates the versatility of rigid.ink PETG:
- It has a specific gravity of 1.27g/cm3, that’s just higher than PLA and about 20% more dense than ABS.
- It has a weighted strength rating of 55.5 kg/122.36 lbs.
- Its Rockwell hardness rating of R106 makes it comparable to ABS.
- However, its tensile strength yield of 53 MPa or 7700 psi, elongation at break of 50% and flexural yield strength of 77 MPa or 11,200 psi, leave ABS in the dust.
rigid.ink PETG comes in a variety of translucent and opaque colours and prints easily, cleanly and with no odour. Your objects will end up with a nice glossy finish. Depending on your extruder, rigid.ink PETG filament has a print temperature of 235C to 245C and works well with a heated bed temperature of about 70C to 80C. As to print surface, rigid.ink PETG is quite forgiving, blue painters tape works well or vinyl-based hairspray.
It’s important to remember that rigid.ink PETG doesn’t need to be forced onto the bed. A slightly larger gap on the Z axis will give the material enough room to lay down properly. Finally, rigid.ink PETG will bond to the previous layer of material ridiculously well. That means for the strongest possible object, leave the fan off. However, if you want to bring out the detail in your object, do use the fan. The rapid cooling will make your object’s details pop.
It’s important to remember that PETG, like a lot of thermoplastic filaments, is hygroscopic. This means that it will absorb moisture directly from the air. This means that you should store your rigid.ink PETG in a cool, dry place in order to maintain its strength and integrity. All rigid.ink orders come with our specially designed resealable rigid.ink foil bag and silica gel for the best storage.
