Be the first to ask a question about this.
Using the same bio-additive technology as our Enviro™ ABS, 3D Printlife's BioPETG™ is specially formulated to be consumed by bacteria once it enters a landfill to energy facility or a commercial compost. Our proprietary bio-additive simply provides a food source for the bacteria living in those environments, without altering the characteristics of the base material.
PETG (also called co-polyester) is a modified version of PET. The added (G) glycol prevents the material from crystallizing and becoming breakable making it an excellent material for 3d printing.
PETG is the most commonly used plastic in the world and it is one of the easiest to recycle, but it isn't biodegradable. Now with our proprietary bio-additive technology, BioPETG™ is the first PETG filament that is environmentally friendly.
BioPETG™ meets ASTM D5338 standards for biodegradability and maintains a dimensional accuracy better than +/- 0.03mm.
BioPETG™ combines many of the benefits of ABS with the ease of printing associated with PLA in one material:
High impact resistance
High strength and durability
Excellent layer adhesion
Very low shrinkage, therefore little to no warping making it deal for large prints
No heated bed required
High temperature resistance
Excellent chemical and water resistance
Excellent geometric accuracy
Can be sterilized
Strong but flexible (ideal for drones, mechanical parts, & robotics)
As with all materials there is a settings "sweet spot" that will vary from one printer to another. BioPETG™ is no different, but once you're dialed in printing with BioPETG™ is a dream. Here are some general setting guidelines:
Set your nozzle temperature between 235°C and 250°C.
Print with cooling fan at 100%
Print with cooling fan at 100%
A heated bed is not required but start between 70°C - 80°C if available.
Set print speed around 55mm/sec or less.
Try starting with an additional .2mm gap in the Z axis to avoid skimming.
As you know 3D Printlife is committed to reducing the environmental impact of 3d printing, so as always a portion of the proceeds from every spool of BioPETG™ will be donated to environmental charity plant a tree. One spool equals one tree, rejuvenating iconic forests in key locations throughout the United States.
