ApplicationsPETG resin is a thermoplastic polymer commonly used as an insulator in electrical applications. Other common applications are:

  • Thermoformed Plastic Clamshells

  • Cosmetic Packaging

  • Blister Packaging

  • Food Trays

AdvantagesPETG resin can be treated to be flame retardant to make it non-combustible. Other advantages of this engineering resin include:

  • Solvent-Resistant

  • Heat-Resistant

  • Shock-Resistant

  • Mechanically Strong

  • No Taste or Odor

  • Durable to Temps as Low as -20°F

  • Excellent Clarity

  • 100% Recyclable

  • Removes Hazing Effect Seen During Heating

  • Prevents Undesirable Crystallization

  • Transforms Outer Walls into a Softer & More Pliable Material for Improved Grip

DisadvantagesSofter Outer Walls can be More Susceptible to Scratches, UV Light Damage and Cannot be Autoclaved
