Tech-G (PETG)

Category: PETG, TECH-G

Material Information

Name: Tech-G (PETG)
Source: Plural Additive Manufacturing
Description:

TECH-G was specifically developed to have high strength and limited elongation. It is perfect for the development and design
industry to easily 3D print parts that offer a higher tensile strength with enough elongation so as to be truly useful in functional
testing.

    General Comments

    Characteristics

    • Superior durability
    • High strength with limited elongation
    • Good wear resistance
    • Low warp and shrink
    • Works with breakaway and soluble support
    • Non-toxic
    • Low melting point, compatible with many support materials
    • Easy to print

    Applications

    • Design and architectural use
    • Functional prototypes and testing
    • Precision go-no-go gauges, fixtures and stops
    • “Soft jaw” holding
    • Jigs & Fixtures
    • Robotic assemblies
    • Prosthetics
    • Living Hinges

    Considerations

    • Not suitable for high temperature applications.
    • Poor elongation, brittle.

    Printing Skill & Experience - Intermediate

    • Needs to be protected from moisture during printing. We recommend purchasing a dry box, or Plural's Material Management System (MMS), to help reduce moisture from the storage environment.
