PETG Polyethylene Terephthalate can be used for medical devices as it can be sterilised using either ethylene oxide or gamma radiation. It is now highly recommended to be used for shop fitting and display applications as it has high rigidity and impact strength.
The benefits of PETG:
Sheets do not require pre-drying before heat forming and forming time cycles are much shorter than for most other thermoplastics in the same thickness. PETG is environmentally safe and can be flame polished. UV resistant grades are available for external applications. Hard coatings can be applied without pre-treatment by use of UV cured sprays or screen printing. Just a few of the applications for PETG are panel covers, safety visors and signs.
PETG provides easy, accurate and fast heating cycles, even with deep drawn forming’s. It is available in three different standard sheet sizes, starting from 0.75mm thick up to 8mm.
|Standard stock sizes||Thickness (mm)||Sheet size (mm)|
|PETG Clear Transparent||0.75 – 8.0mm|
|2050 x 1250mm|
|2500 x 1250mm|
|3050 x 2050mm|
|PETG Clear UV Grade||3.0 – 4.0mm||2050 x 1250mm|
