Alternative Designations: Polyethylene terephthalate glycol
It is more durable than polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and can be heat-formed to create products that are both strong and flexible. PETG is also easy to recycle, making it an environmentally friendly option for many applications. This material has significant chemical resistance, durability and good formability. It has low forming temperatures making it popular in consumer applications. It is commonly used for food containers and bottles for liquid beverages. However, its soft surface makes it prone to wear.
Low forming temperature • Resistant chemicals • Flexible • Hard
