PETG Sheet

PETG sheet is a thermoplastic polyester that provides excellent clarity, durability, high chemical resistance, and is easy to form and fabricate. It can be used in a wide variety of markets in a number of different applications. PETG offers excellent clarity, good impact strength, superior thermoforming and fabrication characteristics, and excellent resistance to chemicals. PETG / Spectar® Co-polyester sheet is a thermoplastic sheet used in engineering applications. It brings increased design freedom and lower fabrication costs.

Main Benefit Of KUSLA PETG Sheet

1. Outstanding thermoforming performance

PETG panels are easy to produce products with complex shapes and large stretch ratios. Moreover, unlike the PC plate and the impact-modified acrylic force, this plate does not need to be pre-dried before the hot forming process. Compared with PC board or acrylic, its forming cycle is short, low temperature, higher yield.

2. Impact resistance

Extruded sheets from PETG sheets are typically 15 to 20 times stronger than generic acrylic and 5 to 10 times stronger than impact-modified acrylic. PETG panels have sufficient endurance during processing, transportation and use to help prevent cracking.

3. Weather resistance

PETG sheet provides excellent weather resistance. It keeps the product strong and prevents yellowing. It contains ultraviolet absorbent, can be co-extruded into a protective layer, protect the plate from the harmful effects of ultraviolet.

4. Easy for machining

PETG plate can be sawing, die cutting, drilling, punching, shearing, riveting, milling and cold bending, not broken. Slight scratches on the surface can be eliminated with a heat gun. Solvent bonding is also a routine procedure. It is easier to process than general acrylic, impact-modified acrylic or PC plate, and can be flocking, electroplating, and electrostatic processing.

5. Excellent chemical resistance

PETG sheet can tolerate a variety of chemicals and commonly used cleaners.

6. Environmental protection

PETG board base materials are environmental protection materials, in line with the requirements of food contact management.

 7. Economic

it is cheaper than PC board, and more durable than acrylic.

Frequently Asked Questions about PETG sheets

PETG stands for Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol. It is a thermoplastic polyester that delivers significant chemical resistance, durability, and formability for manufacturing. PETG is an adaptation of PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate) where the ‘G’ stands for glycol, which is added at a molecular level to offer different chemical properties. PETG is commonly used in manufacturing for food containers and bottles for liquid beverages as it is a food-safe plastic. PETG is also fully recyclable like acrylic and many other thermoplastics.

PETG sheet has many characteristics that make it a popular choice for various applications. Some of its characteristics include:

Food compatible
High clarity
Good impact resistance
Excellent thermo formability: can withstand temperatures of up to around 80°C

PETG sheet has outstanding thermoforming properties, combining low energy consumption, short production cycles, extreme draw ratios and good mould reproduction without the need for pre-drying. It displays good clarity, chemical resistance, impact resistance, and is FDA compliant. PETG is widely used for signs, POP displays and store fixtures, machine guards and housings, and thermoformed trays.

The thickness specifications of PETG sheets vary by manufacturer. For example, the thickness of PETG sheets from Superior Graphic Supplies is 30mil (0.03 inches). Cut Plastic Sheeting offers PETG sheets in eight different thicknesses ranging from 1.5mm to 10mm. Kusla Plastics offers PETG sheets that can be bent up to 0.080 inches thick. PETG products offer superior impact strength over acrylic and cost effectiveness compared to polycarbonate.

The size specifications of PETG sheets vary by manufacturer and can range from 24 inches to 48 inches in width and 96 inches in length. Kusla Plastics offers PETG sheets in a standard size of 48” x 96”.

PETG sheets come in a variety of colors including black, white, silver, grey, transparent, blue, red, green and yellow.

PETG sheets are extremely impact resistant (also at minus temperatures) and have very good thermoforming properties. PETG falls between acrylic and polycarbonate on the scale of impact resistance, with higher impact resistance than acrylic but lower resistance than polycarbonate.

PETG sheets are a type of transparent plastic sheet made from thermoplastic polyester. They are known for their high clarity and light transmission, as well as their high gloss surface finish. Kusla PETG sheets have a light transmittance of 86%.

The density of PETG sheets is usually between 1.23 and 1.27 g/cm^3, making it one of the densest filament types along with PLA.

PETG sheets can be treated with various surface treatments such as PEI, BuildTak & Glass. PETG smoothing is also a great way to reduce layer lines and deformities in a print. You can also use Blue Painter’s Tape or a glue stick on top of these surfaces as an extra measure for adhesion. Heat treatment is also an option with PETG.

PETG can be injection moulded, sheet extruded or extruded as a filament for 3D printing. PETG is both vaccum and thermo formable and can withstand high pressures without cracking. It can be injection moulded into a variety of shapes or extruded into sheets. PETG sheets can also be cut to size easily for your precise manufacturing needs.

The cost of PETG sheets varies depending on the thickness and size of the sheet. You can find PETG sheets ranging from $10 to $100 per sheet. However, the price may vary depending on the supplier and location.

PETG sheets are used in many different fields because they can handle heat, impact, and solvents. Here are a few industries that make good use of PETG material:

Packaging (medical, food/beverage, and retail)
Advertising displays
Electronic insulators
Food and beverage containers & packaging
Machine guards
3D printing

Yes, PETG sheets can be used outdoors. PETG and ASA are 3D printing materials for outdoor use and durable.

Yes, PETG is a food-safe plastic that’s commonly used for food containers and bottles for liquid beverages. Kusla PETG is produced using resin that complies with FDA requirements for food contact applications. PETG sheets are also transparent and food-safe rigid sheets for making reusable molds.

Yes, PETG sheets can be recycled. It’s important to note that PETG is a thermoplastic, which means that it can be shaped and reshaped over and over again by simply heating it up. This process causes absolutely no degradation to the material itself, allowing it to be recycled and repurposed indefinitely.
