Single Extrusion:
Self-support.

Dual Extrusion:
PolyDissolve™ S1 (PVA) can sometimes support some models depending on its geometry.

Based on 0.4 mm nozzle. Printing conditions may vary with different printers and nozzle diameters.

PETG is a 'sticker' material in comparison to regular PLA. When it comes to printing PETG without stringing or blobs it's recommended to keep the filament dry and tune temperatures, retraction, speeds and flow to avoid build up of excess material on the nozzle.

Compatibility

PolyLite™ PETG has been engineered with compatibility in mind to print excellently on a wide range of 3D printers equipped with a heated bed. PolyLite™ PETG like other materials is hygroscopic. This means that it is susceptible to absorbing moisture from the atmosphere which can subsequently affect the quality and mechanical properties of the final prints. See "Storage and Drying" details below for instructions to protect PolyLite™ PETG.

Of course with thousands of unique 3d printer models on the market, we can't guarantee each filament type will work with every 3D printer.


Technical Data

All testing specimens were printed under the following conditions: Nozzle Temperature = 260˚C, build plate temperature = 90˚C, infil = 100%, cooling fan = OFF

STORAGE & DRYING

Before packaging, PolyLite™ PETG is dried to ensure the best printing quality and filaments are vacuum sealed to protect the filament from moisture. When not in use PolyLite™ PETG should be stored away from sunlight in the packaged resealable bag.

Like other PETG filaments, PolyLite™ PETG is susceptible to absorbing moisture from the air which can subsequently effect the quality and mechanical properties of the final prints. We recommend storing PolyLite™ PETG in the PolyBox™ or a dry cabinet during printing to prevent moisture absorption which will lower the quality of the print. The PolyBox™ keeps the filament at dry conditions (relative humidity of 15% or less). 

If you hear popping sounds and notice that the surface quality of your print is uneven or the color is not consistent, this is a likely indicator that the filament has absorbed too much moisture. Spools of PolyLite™ PETG can be dried in a preheated convection oven at 65˚C for up to 6 hours. Results may vary depending on the accuracy of your oven so please be conservative. For more information about filament drying please read our user guide.


FAQ

Q: Does PETG print exactly the same as PLA?
A: Most filament types are compared to PLA or ABS when discussing how they print. PETG doesn't print exactly like PLA but it shares more printing characteristics with PLA than it does with ABS. How easy a material is to print will wildly rely on a users hardware and previous experience, but most users find transitioning from PLA to PETG easier than transitioning from PLA to ABS. The key differences between PLA and PETG are a heated bed is very important when printing PETG, optimal printing temperatures are different and the enclosures can be more beneficial when printing some geometries.

Q: Can PETG be printed at large scales without warping?
A: In terms of dimensional stability, PETG is easier to print than high temperature materials like ABS. When using a desktop 3D printer, many large prints that would warp or crack in ABS can often times be printed in PETG without these hassles. Typically PETG can be printed at large scales without requiring an enclosure but this can vary depending on the first layer adhesion and heated bed. For 3D printers that don’t evenly heat the entire bed surface an enclosure can be very helpful. Enclosures can also help to prevent drafts.

Q: Is PETG a suitable replacement for ABS?
A: Many users refer to PETG as an excellent replacement for ABS which is certainly true for some applications. When comparing regular PETG and regular ABS; ABS is still the tougher, stiffer and more heat resistant filament however many end users find PETG easier to print. If users won't benefit from the added performance ABS offers, the improved printability of PETG can make PolyLite™ PETG a suitable candidate.

Reliable Mechanical, Colouring & Printing Properties - Every batch of filament products are tested to ensure all quality specs (melt flow, softening point, mechanical, diameter, round-ness) are met.
Drying & Vacuum Sealing - Before packaging, all Polymaker filaments are dried to a moisture level of < 0.1% to ensure the best printing quality and are vacuum sealed to protect the filament from moisture. All vacuum packaged products are left for 24 hours before boxing to ensure they are leak-free.

Polymaker Cardboard Spool

Polymaker are in the process of phasing in their new sustainable packaging while using up their plastic spools to save resources and avoid waste. We cannot guarantee which packaging you will receive during the transition stage but what we can guarantee is that you will receive the same high-quality filament that you expect from Polymaker.

PolyLite™ PETG is wound on Polymakers 1kg carton spools, manufactured from recycled cardboard. The cutaway and weight gauge on the side of the spool make it easy to see exactly how much filament is left for your next printing project. PolyLite™ PETG's recycled cardboard packaging and carton spool are the first step taken towards creating more eco-sustainable products. The spool is packaged in a vacuum sealed resealable bag to ensure your filament is moisture free. Like all other PETG filaments, PolyLite™ PETG is hygroscopic so we recommend keeping this bag for filament storage.
