PETG (polyethylene terephthalate) is a transparent copolyester, thermoplastic sheet. Also known as GPET, PETG glycol-modified, is an amorphous copolyester with the properties of CHDM.It is widely used in engineering applications, POP display, and the store fixture industry.
PETG is in the form of a sheet. It has the impact strength and easy processing characteristics that acrylic can not meet. And has the durability to significantly reduce packaging and transportation costs. Due to its transparency, strength, and excellent thermoforming properties, PETG is the first choice for meeting custom manufacturing needs.
PETG is able to produce complex shapes, precise details, deep drawing, and compound curves without worrying about durability. It is easy to form, die-cut and stamp. PETG performs well in applications that need screen printing and signage. It brings increased design freedom and lower manufacturing costs.
Thus, PETG or polyethylene terephthalate is a thinner alternative to acrylic and polycarbonate sheets. PETG is a cost-effective and thermoformable plastic that meets FDA requirements.
Others name: PETG, PET-G, Vivak PETG, Spectar PETG
1-Outstanding thermoforming performance
PETG sheets are easy to produce products with complex shapes and large stretch ratios. Moreover, unlike PC board and impact-modified acrylic, this board does not need to be pre-dried before thermoforming. Compared with PC board or acrylic, its molding cycle is short, the temperature is low, and the yield is higher.
The extruded PETG sheet is usually 15 to 20 times tougher than general acrylic. 5 to 10 times tougher than impact-modified acrylic. PETG sheet has enough bearing capacity during processing, transportation.
PETG sheet provides excellent weather resistance. It can maintain the toughness of the product and prevent yellowing. It contains ultraviolet absorbers. which can be co-extruded into a protective layer to protect the board from the harmful effects of ultraviolet rays.
4- Easy to process
PETG sheet can be sawed, die-cut, drilled, punched, cut, riveted, milled, and cold-formed without breaking. Slight scratches on the surface can be eliminated with a hot air gun. Solvent bonding is also a normal operation. It is easier to process than general acrylic, impact modified acrylic or PC board. Also, it can be processed for flocking, electroplating, static electricity and other processing.
5-Excellent chemical resistance
PETG sheet can withstand a variety of chemicals and common cleaning agents.
PETG sheet substrates are all environmentally friendly materials. It meets the requirements of (FDA)food contact management.
It is cheaper than PC board and more durable than acrylic.
