What is PETG?
Durable. Virtually Unbreakable. Affordable.
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 can be easily vacuumed and pressure-formed as well as heat-bent thanks to its low forming temperatures. This makes it exceptionally popular for consumer and commercial applications that involve Extrusion blow molding, or other heat-forming manufacturing techniques. Additionally, PETG is well-suited for fabrication techniques like die cutting, routing, and bending.
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.
PETG is commonly used in single use and reusable drinking bottles, cooking oil containers, and FDA-compliant food storage containers. However, PETG is also found across the medical field; its rigid structure allows it to survive harsh sterilization processes, making it a perfect material to be used in medical implants, as well as pharmaceutical and medical device packaging.
PETG (G = glycol) are clarified materials that can be extrusion blow molded. Co-polyester is sometimes used as a substitute for polycarbonate (PC) in container products. It’s similar to PC, but it’s not quite as clear or as tough and it doesn’t contain bisphenol A (BPA), But PETG is also hard to be extrusion blow molded.
For now, we got many patents on blow molding machine special on PETG material.
as you see, this Diptyque perfume takes the same PETG bottle as ours. the reason is only 3 points:
1, Good and beautiful appearance to attract customers and arouse the desire to buy, promoted this consmetic.
2, Anti-counterfeiting and copycat. Because this kind of bottle is not produced by ordinary machines, this is a patented technology.
3,High transparency, see the liquid inside clear, easier to sell.
