PETG's main features
Outstanding thermoforming performance
PETG sheet easy to produce complex shape and stretch ratio products. Moreover, unlike PC boards and impact-modified acrylics, this sheet does not require pre-drying prior to thermoforming. Compared with the PC board or acrylic, the molding cycle is short, the temperature is low, the yield is higher.
Extruded sheets of PETG sheet are typically 15 to 20 times tougher than versatile acrylics and 5 to 10 times tougher than impact modified acrylics. PETG sheets are robust enough to withstand cracking, processing, shipping and handling.
PETG sheet provides excellent weatherability. It maintains the toughness of the product and prevents it from turning yellow. It contains UV absorbers that co-extrude into a protective layer that protects the sheet from the harmful effects of UV light.
Processing is simple
PETG sheet can be sawing, die cutting, drilling, punching, shearing, riveting, milling and cold bending, will not be broken. Slight scratches the surface can be used to eliminate hot air gun. Solvent bonding is also routine. It is easier to process than Universal Acrylic, Impact Modified Acrylic or PC Board and can be flocked, electroplated, electrostatically processed.
Excellent chemical resistance
PETG sheet can withstand a variety of chemicals and commonly used cleaning agents.
PETG board substrates are environmentally friendly materials, in line with food contact management requirements.
It is cheaper than a PC board and more durable than acrylic.
