An easily printable material with good mechanical, chemical and thermal properties. In this article, you will find the basic information to print with BCN3D PET-G
What is PET-G
PET-G (Polyethylene terephthalate glycol-modified) is a polyester thermoplastic characterized by a good balance of tensile strength and elongation at break.
Its high resistance to water and chemicals makes it the material of choice for water-tight containers and protective cases.
PET-G is a versatile technical material, as easy to print as PLA, but with an improved balance of mechanical, chemical, and thermal properties.
You can purchase PET-G from our store: BCN3D PET-G
Properties of BCN3D PET-G

The BCN3D PET-G is compatible with the following BCN3D Filaments.
PET-G printing settings - 0.4 mm nozzle
- Note: BCN3D Lab develops specific configurations for each material and printer. Be sure to use the last BCN3D Stratos version.
Build plate adhesion
Plastics absorb moisture from the air. When the material is not in use, it is recommended to keep the PET-G spools in a box or airtight container with desiccant to keep them dry.
PET-G emits low levels of gasses and particles when printed. We recommend printing it in a well-ventilated area to ensure a healthy environment.
