Polyethylene terephthalate glycol, commonly known as PETG or PET-G, is a thermoplastic polyester that provides
significant chemical resistance, durability, and excellent formability for manufacturing.
PETG is strong and cost-effective when compared to either acrylic or polycarbonate. Its unique characteristics make it
preferable for impact-resistant glazing and high strength display units. Suitable for digital printing, PETG lends itself to product materials, displays, and signage.
In general, PETG is a food-safe plastic that’s commonly used for food containers and bottles for liquid beverages. Like acrylic and
many other thermoplastics, PETG is fully recyclable.
PETG is both thermoformable and vacuum-formable, and can tolerate a tremendous amount of pressure without cracking. Although
PETG is naturally clear, it takes color easily during processing. It can be injection molded into a variety of shapes, or extruded into sheets.
PETG’s damage resistance is far higher than that of acrylic, to the point that it rivals the impact resistance of polycarbonate. However, PETG
fabricates easily, making it an easy material for both practitioners and professional fabricators.
Thermoforming– PETG does not require drying prior to forming and has rapid thermoforming cycle times. It is brake formable up to 0.080″ thickness.
Impact Resistance– PETG is less brittle than acrylic, and is a lower cost alternative to polycarbonate.
Chemical Resistance– PETG offers superior chemical resistance when compared with many other transparent plastics.
Base on all these characters of PETG plastic material, we developed this special blow molding machine only for PETG material.mostly, the application
are cosmetic jars or bottles or containers. as far as now, we are the No.1 on this PETG extrusion blow molding machine. see the bottles made by our extrusion blow machine:
