PETG Characteristics

Easily formed, die-cut and punched, PETG is a solid choice for applications in which complex shapes, details, deep draws and compound curves are featured. This thermoplastic material – polyethylene terephthalate glycol – can also be painted, silk screened or hot-stamped.

Exceptionally durable, PETG offers engineers great design freedom and is suitable for many applications. With better impact strength than acrylic and lower cost than polycarbonate, PETG is the superior choice for many complex fabrications. Characteristics include:

  • Durable and tough
  • Good chemical resistancehere to help 200
  • High impact strength
  • Good clarity
  • Easily formed, die-cut and punched

Applications for PETG Thermoplastic

  • Covers
  • Guards
  • Electronics
  • Medical braces
  • Point-of-purchase and graphic displays
