PETG (rPETg) 2.3kg - Black 3D Printer Filament
Prints like PLA, strong like ABS. Perfect hybrid.
Polyethylene terephthalate – or PET for short – is a common plastic. PETg is becoming an emerging filament; combining the printing ease of PLA with the strength and durability of ABS. PET plastic originates from non-renewable sources, and recycling rates remain low, which adds to the already large-scale problem of waste plastic. To combat this, Filamentive rPETg is made from recycled PET waste streams, such as plastic food containers and drinks bottles. Our PET filament also features glycol – hence the ‘g’ – which prevents undesirable crystallisation effects that cause standard PET to become brittle. Overall, rPETg is strong, does not warp, and is odour neutral; a perfect all-rounder, ideal for those strong and durable parts. It is even safe for food contact.
- Recommended printing temperature: 195-235°C
- Recommended heated bed temperature: 50-80°C
- Storage: Cool and dry conditions, ideally ~20°C

Successfully used these for the first time for about half of a 6,000 printer-hour print job in January, with zero issues. I generally use the 1kg spools but was easily able to adapt to these and appreciated more than halving the number of reel changes which improved reliability and efficiency in the job.
