Please note this is not a brilliant white but a slight greyish white do to the nature of its creation, from 100% recycled PETg post industrial waste.
We love the world of 3D printing and the opportunities that it can bring to so many people, businesses and education. Though we are also mindful of the increased use of plastic materials created by this amazing technology. So when we are given the chance to offer our valued customers the choice of New and Recycled 3D printing materials, we jump at the chance. Please note there will be a change over to the new cardboard spools for this material in the months ahead.
Mitsubishi Chemical Corp are one of the world’s largest polymer based 3d filament manufacturers with a focus on high (OEM) quality filaments and the development of new innovative materials for 3D printing based on FDM and / or FGF technology. It is this great company that have now brought us the new PIPG.
recycled Post Industrial Pet-G has been created from the waste of previous filament processing, balancing the time, money and industrial energy it takes to produce this 100% recycled material.
This 100% recycled PETG material PIPG, prints on the majority of 3D Desktop printers, with pretty much the same settings, though you may need to turn down fans during the 3D printing process, if you are experiencing de lamination or extrusion issues. Other than a reduction in fan speed, all other parameters are similar to the printing of regular PETG filaments.
• Post Industrial Recycled Grade
• Strong & Flexible
• Easy to Print
• Limited Smell
• Almost no “Warping”
Recommended printing temperatures:
Hot end at 240±10ºC
Heated bed is ± 60-80˚C. Adhesion is possible to different surfaces.
Best PETG based filament I have used yet!
Started a 3Dbenchy test print with the temperatures set to 245c hot-end and a 75c bed to start and ended up able to drop to 225c hot end and 70c bed and the results are the best I have had with a PETG base filament yet.
I'm running a now ageing RepRap-Pro Ormerod2 with an E3D all metal V6 with print speed of 40mm/s and apart from a few retract scars (it is a Bowden extruder after all) its been a successful first print. With a bit more tweaking I doubt there will be any defects at all.
I have also checked and can confirm this glues beautifully with the Evo-Stick Extrufix and its a Solvent weld like acetone is to ABS.
Will definitely buy another roll once this runs low.
