Product category: Polyethylene terephthalate (PET)
Selenis PETG copolyesters are designed for high performance and easy manufacturing in a broad range of applications. These copolyesters provide all-in-one transparency, high gloss surface, easy formability, chemical resistance, durability and high impact resistance.
PETG guarantees easy formability thanks to its low forming temperatures, making this product the ideal choice for easy vacuum and pressure forming and a number of different processes and techniques, such as, bending, drilling, cutting, routing and polishing. PETG copoylesters have fast thermoforming cycles and dont require pre-drying.
PETGs unique characteristics make it the material of choice when impact resistance and high strength are required, as these products are known for being virtually unbreakable. PETG tolerates a huge amount of pressure and can endure thermoforming applications that require deep draws, precise mold shapes and complex die cuts, whilst maintaining structural integrity. PETG is also found across the medical field as its rigid structure helps survive harsh sterilization processes such as Gamma, E-beam and EtO sterilization.
Products manufactured with Selenis PETG copolyesters combine exceptional clarity, surface gloss and easy decorability, making intricate imagery an affordable option. The superior clarity that can be achieved with these copolyesters allows packaging engineers to design parts with thick walls without sacrificing transparency. PETG grades are easy to colour with masterbatches, representing the perfect solution to transform ideas into lively creations with superior aesthetics.
PETG copolyesters offer superior chemical resistance when compared to other transparent plastics, as well as good barrier properties, helping brand owners grant product safety and preservation during storage.
All of Selenis PETG copolyesters are BPA and syrene free.
