Clariant Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol (PET-G)
3D PRINTER FILAMENT
Glycol modified polyethylene terephthalate (PET-G) is a polyester with good toughness and chemical resistance. 3D printed PET-G exhibits good layer adhesion and can be used to produce all kinds of products which include end use parts, prototypes, jigs, and fixtures. Clariant improves the heat stability and resistance to thermal processes using appropriately selected additives such as Hostanox® P-EPQ® and Hostavin® ARO 8.

*Subject to detailed product specifications.
- Print Temperature = 240-260°C
- Print Speed = 30-60 mm/s
- Bed Adhesion = a generous uniform layer of a PVP based glue, use of a commercial adhesion sheet or commercial bed adhesive
- Bed Temperature = ideally heated up to 70-80°C
- Fan Settings = medium to high
Note: parameters are dependent on printer used; Clariant tests were performed on an Ultimaker 3 extended and an Ultimaker S5.
Ideally store the 3D printer filament in a cool, dry place at temperatures between 5 to 25°C in a sealed container with the provided Clariant Desi Pak® desiccant bag. If the 3D printer filament has been exposed to moisture, please dry at 65°C for 4-6 hours with a vacuum or desiccant drying system if possible. Minimum shelf life is 1 year from the date of shipping when properly stored.
