Easily formed, die-cut and punched, PETG is a solid choice for applications in which complex shapes, details, deep draws and compound curves are featured. It can also be painted, silk screened or hot stamped.
Exceptionally durable, PETG offers engineers great design freedom and is suitable for many applications. With better impact strength than acrylic and lower cost than polycarbonate, PETG is the superior choice for many complex fabrications.
Our application engineers can help. With decades of experience in plastic material selection, we'll help you choose the optimal plastic for your application and budget.
