Airwolf 3D PETG filament is an extra tough 3D-print material. This is an extreme high strength filament and can achieve very sturdy and strong prints. It has very low shrinkage, making this perfect for larger flat surfaces. Airwolf 3D’s new PETG is a perfect alternative to ABS and PLA, offering higher strength, lower shrinkage, and a smoother finish.

Elongation at Break:
|Recommended Use:||3D printing filament||(see “Methodology of Test” for details)|
|Restrictions on Use:||For use with 3D printers|
SECTION 2, DESCRIPTION
|Description:||PETGs (or copolyester) are glycol modified PETs; the modification is done by adding a second glycol during polymerization. The resulting molecular structure is irregular and the resin is clear and amorphous with a higher glass transition temperature of 88 C (190 F). PETGs can be processed over a wider processing range than conventional PETs and offer good combination of properties such as toughness, clarity, and stiffness.
Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol
|Applications:||Low shrinkage (minimal warping) is ideal for printing larger prototypes
Prototypes which are shatterproof or translucent
Mounts, jigs and fixturesHeadlight covers
Food and liquid storage
|Key Features:||Brilliant Color
Superior Chemical Resistance
BPA FreeAmorphous: Low and near isotropic shrinkage
Low moisture absorption
Very low odor emitted during printingMore flexible than PLA or ABS
Can be printed with lower bed temperatures than ABS
Does not need an enclosure

SECTION 4, ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
- PETG filament can jam in the print head if printed too hot. If the printer is enclosed, it is recommended to keep the enclosure door/top open if possible to prevent filament swelling and to maximize print quality.
- Methodology of Tests performed by Airwolf 3D: Airwolf 3D tested this material, in its 3d printed form, for the mechanical properties of “Ultimate Strength” and “Elongation at Break” per ISO 527 standards. Specimens were printed on an AXIOM 3D printer with a nozzle orifice size 0.5mm. The specimens were “dog bone” shaped with a size of 75mm x 10mm x 2mm and printed with 90% fill density. Wolfbite adhesive was used to adhere the part to the heated bed during print cycle. The default “Standard” setting in APEX slicing software was used.
- Try Wolfbite Original™. This product bonds polypropylene plastic parts to a build plate to allow printing without lifting and to enable smooth release of objects after printing.
- Looking for something a little bit stiffer? Try PETG reinforced with the lightweight rigidity of carbon fiber.
