PETG (rPETg) 1KG - 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

    I have used Filamentive rPLA which was fantastic see my review. So whilst waiting for new supplies to arrive i thought i would give rPETG a try. Why have i not used this before , it was so smooth and easy to print , the finish is excellent . the price is great ( incidentaly the orange is the same colour as prusa orange ) I thought i would have problems printing as i had seen stories about PETG but it was fine first layer 240 on a bed of 65 then 235 on a bed of 55 it stuck well to my PEI bed i did use a small ammount of glue stick to aid seperation which i did by letting the bed cool to 35 then put a drop of IPA at the side and waited for 5 minutes and pop off it came . What more can i say apart from hurry along with new stocks i need to buy lots more 🙂 Keep up the good work Ravi .

    Just like the white PETG, this filament is super easy to print with and provides an excellent finish. I’ve printed a cup with in-place hinged lid and it turned out exactly as designed, working perfectly. The black is very ‘black’, but also exceedingly shiny. If it wasn’t for the imperfections from 3D printing such as layer lines I’m sure it would be very close to a piano black finish. It’s also really smooth to the touch, so very pleasant for parts that will be handled. There’s also very minimal stringing which PETG can suffer from.

    Printed parts are very strong, I’ve got a few spool holders printed in this PETG and they look the same a few weeks later as they did when fresh off the printer.

    Definitely my favourite PETG so far, regardless of recycled or not.

    No regrets, superb filament and I can recommend.
    Layer adhesion quite impressive with higher temps.
    Check and see yourself.

    Fantastic filament. Virtually no stringing. Prints beautifully.

    Prints well. First 50M was dry and then heard an increase in popping noise. Once dried again was good.

    A good attempt but the 0.05+- accuracy and possibly other issues make for inconsistent prints in comparison to the competition. When testing this filament directly against Prusament it comes up short with clogging or under-extrusion due to the lack of consistency, which is perhaps why it’s not mentioned on the site and only in the datasheet.

    People mention virtually no stringing, and yes if sticking to the lower 230-235 degrees nozzle temp suggested then yes PETG, in general, will not string, but for better adhesion for items needing to be stronger or watertight then a temp of 240-250 will introduce stringing significantly.

    I wish this filament had a better result overall but the inconsistency means I can’t ship products to customers as consistently as I could with Prusament or Proto-Pasta, which is shame really as I really want to have a recycled filament product.

    PETG strong and performs as expected. Stringing on lower layers fixed by lowering bed temp – probably more to do with colour (and heat retention) than material.

    My goto filament, gives nice clean prints with a nice gloss finish.

    Generally really good, but I have had the occasional batch that had serious consistency issues

    If you want clean consistent prints then I can highly recommend Filamentive petg black. I’ve lost count how many rolls I’ve used.

    Great service thanks

  15. Richard M. (verified owner)

    Excellent quality.

  16. Michael (verified owner)

    Easy to print and minimal to no stringing. Prints at a lower temperature than other PET-G but seems just as strong.

  17. Taryn Allison (verified owner)

    Good can’t fault it
