Nowadays, Apet film PETG film PETGAG film is widely used by customers in different industries. Some people are using PETGAG film, so the film performance is close to PETG film and Costs much lower and better than APET.

Do you know the difference between them? Today’s, let’s talk about them.

What is APET?

  APET (Amorphous PET) is a thermoplastic sheet. It is produced by the extrusion processing of Polyethylene Terephthalate (APET) copolymer, a thermoplastic polyester.

The major usage of APET.

Major applications of APET are in the areas of thermoforming and packaging. Such as Blister packaging, Thermoforming, Fabricated packing

Blister packagingThermoformingFabricated packing
Pharmaceutical and medical industries – tablets, medical disposables, and medical devices for diagnostics and surgeryFast foods and takeaway and beverage industry – salads, sandwiches, ice-cream parlor cups, desserts, bakery items, mithai, tea coffee and drinks cupsApparel – boxes for shirts, ties, ladies hosieryGift and novelty items –
Consumer goods – toothbrushes, shaving blades, battery cellsPrepacked retail foods and confectionary – chocolate and biscuit trays, nuts, dried fruits, mithai boxes, ice-cream, butter and cream tubs and cups etctoys, dolls etc
Beauty aids
Personal hygiene products – single-use rigid pouches for hair oils, shampoos that currently use flexible packagingFarm Produce – boxes for strawberries and other berries, boxes and separators for packing of high value fruit and vegetables, herbs, egg cartons etc– scents, brushes
Processed foods – single portion packing of sauces, pickles, butter etc which are used in the catering industryPoint of purchase display packaging – electrical, electronic, tools, toys, stationary etc

What is PETG?

PETG is a plastic resin of the polyester family that is used to make beverage, food, and other liquid containers, as well as for some other thermoforming applications. PETG is a clear amorphous thermoplastic that can be injection molded or sheet extruded.

The major usage of PETG.

• Medical Packaging
• Printable
• Food Storage/Displays
• High Optical Quality
• Industrial Guards and CoversSlat-Wall Components

What is PETGAG?

PET GAG is a laminated sheet made of A-PET (Amorphous Polyester) inner layer and PETG (Amorphous Co-polyester) surface layer on both sides.

PET GAG features

  • Adhesion

Comparing with regular A-PET sheets. PET GAG has stronger adhesion strength due to the PETG surface layers.

  • Processability

Easy punching and bending by leading line. Less burring compared with A-PET materials.

  • Printing

Printing property is same as OETG, better than A-PET.

  • Thermal forming

Vacuum forming and bending with heat process can be applied.
