PET/PETT is a clear plastic resin, it is the most common plastics in the world today, used in the manufacture of water bottles, food container packaging etc.
poly(ethylene terephthalate) - is glycol modified PET filament (a polymer resin of the polyester family) which we are certain will be the 3D printing filament you are looking for. If you do not wish to print with ABS and need a filament that is both strong, impact resistant and durable, even for the most demanding applications, then FilaPrint PET-G
is the material for you, your printer and your customers!
We know over the years that several PET/PETT products can be difficult to work with or take time getting the settings right, which to be honest when you are printing with different materials and you have several projects on the go you don't really have the time to spare "dialling" in different filaments. Other than changing the temperatures slightly on the several machines we pre-tested FilaPrint PET-G
on, such as the Big Box, Poetry 2 Infinity, Flexion Graded Wanhau Duplicator 4, Modified Makerbot Replicator 2X and even on the £99 printer Startt (though we used a little PrintaFix
to hold it down on the Startt platform), there was little else to "set up" for this filament.
We found that ensuring the external fan was on after the 1st layer and not
blowing too fierce to cool down the filament between layers and allow for its superb bonding properties, all we had to do then was enjoy the 3D printing experience!
With the benefits of odour neutral, almost no “warping” (if any), food contact acceptable and being hydrophobic (does not absorb water), you can be confident in this filament for your 3D printing projects.
filament is perfect for bridging and overhangs, ensuring that your detailed prints remain just that! You can also see from the photographs above that the colours are really vivid, even the translucent filaments have an amazing colour tone.
We have a wide range of colours both translucent and opaque for you to choose from in 1.75mm & 2.85 filament diameter.
