PCTG is housed under the same family of polyesters as PET-G. PCTG filament offers durability, ever-lasting strength, and precision. Unlike PET-G, this unique filament can endure high temperatures reaching a staggering of 76°C – a great choice for printing projects requiring mechanical and functional parts. Containing high chemical resistance, PCTG filament is easy to print and, since it is free of BPA, is considered a food-safe material suitable for creating food packaging prints.
Diameter: 1.75 mm.
Tolerance: +-0.03 mm
PCTG, also known as Poly Cyclohexylenedimethylene Terephthalate Glycol, is extremely similar to PETG and offers increased strength, low shrinkage, and better clarity. It is widely recognized as a transparent material with outstanding chemical resistance delivering a larger range of printing temperatures and increased durability.
