AN ALTERNATIVE TO PET-G

PCTG belongs to the same family of polyesters as the increasingly popular PET-G. Compared to its more popular counterpart, PCTG offers increased impact strength, temperature resistance and clarity, making it an excellent alternative to PET-G. This filament does not require a heated chamber, which makes it ideal for use with home printers. It ensures high dimensional stability, while low shrinkage prevents the model from cracking. This makes it an easy-to-print material, even for people without a lot of experience in 3D printing.

 

PCTG is characterized by a much higher impact strength compared to similar materials (e.g. PET-G). It achieves results in the region of 90 kJ/m2 (PET-G: 5-8 kJ/m2) in the Izod test (notched sample). PCTG also withstands higher temperatures (up to 76°C).

Fiberlogy PCTG is recyclable and approved for contact with food *. The material is BPA free.
* applies to the Pure TR version

APPLICATION IN 3D PRINTING:
INDUSTRY: spare parts, short series, utility models
AUTOMOTIVE: elements in the engine compartment, housing of vehicle components, air intakes, fluid funnels
SPORT: accessories, pads, airsoft elements
