Description

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!

    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.
