PET-G Material

Easily formable polyethylene terephthalate glycol or PET-G is a thermoplastic polyester that provides significant chemical resistance, durability, and easy manufacturing. PETG can be easily vacuumed and pressure-formed as well as heat-bent thanks to its low forming temperatures. Additionally, PETG is well-suited for fabrication techniques like die cutting, routing, and bending.
