Description

PETG (rPETg) 1KG – White 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!

    Prints very consistent. The best recycled PET that I have used so far. I will buy this again and other Filamentive products in the future.

    Ignoring for a moment that this filament is recycled, it prints exceptionally well. Stringing is very minimal, and the surface finish looks really good. In terms of ease of print it’s largely the same as PLA, but bridging is a little trickier. You can still bridge long distances like with PLA, but the quality of the surface is noticably worse. I suspect with some improved slicer settings this could be improved, but PETG is always a little worse at bridging. The only other issue is a slightly higher propensity to warp on cool down at the edges, something to watch out for.

    I’ve used this filament to print parts for a 3D printer and they’re holding up great. No worries at all about the quality of the printed parts whatsoever. I’m really happy with the surface finish and colour, the parts look fantastic. The white here is a very pure white, with a slightly cool temperature (small blue tint).

    So in short this is my go-to PETG filament when I need to make something that can’t be reasonably made in PLA. I just wish there were more colours available.
