To support everyone who produces 3D-printed PPE, such as face shields, Prusament decided to make Prusament PETG Orange for PPE available at a discount compared to the regular PETG.
This Prusament PETG is primarily made for printing PPE (Personal protective equipment). The material composition matches Prusament PETG Prusa Orange, however, to speed up the production, the diameter tolerance is ±0.03mm and the winding is not as perfect as on the usual Prusaments. Also, unlike standard Prusament, spools do not have their unique ids and cannot be checked on the website. Even though anyone can order it, this Prusament is mainly for those in need of material for printing PPE. It's still a high-quality filament, which we've been using on our print farm for a long time.
Prusament PETG is Prusa's own in-house made filament. The whole manufacturing process is closely monitored and tested - they guarantee ±0.02mm precision and highly-consistent colors. You can inspect parameters of every spool made at prusament.com
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?
MANUFACTURED IN-HOUSE BY JOSEF PRUSA
We were not satisfied with the quality of filaments on the market. So we decided to make our own! Prusa Research is the only 3D printer manufacturer with its own filament production.
PREMIUM-GRADE MATERIALS AND THOROUGH TESTING
The whole manufacturing process is closely monitored and tested – string diameter, color consistency, and mechanical properties – to make sure that every spool is perfect.
± 0.02 MM MANUFACTURING PRECISION
We believe the industry standard of 0.05 mm isn’t sufficient for perfect 3D printing. Instead, we guarantee ±0.02mm precision and highly-consistent colors in our filaments.
HIGH QUALITY YOU CAN CHECK YOURSELF
Prusament gives customers the option to fully inspect parameters of every filament spool. Just scan a QR code on the spool to see all details online.
PETG is a very tough material with good thermal resistance. Its use is universal but especially suitable for mechanical parts and both indoor and outdoor use. PETG has almost no warping, so printing large objects isn’t a problem. We use PETG to print parts for our printers!
PETG is one of our favorite materials for 3D printing. It’s almost as easy to print as PLA, but it can offer many mechanical properties that PLA prints just cannot achieve. The G in the acronym PETG stands for Glycol which is added during the manufacturing process. Glycol modifies the properties of PET, so that it’s easier to print, less brittle and clearer when printing with semi-transparent variants. PETG has low thermal expansion, so even when printing big objects, and without an enclosure, it rarely lifts from the bed and warps. In addition to that, PETG is ductile. It has a healthy amount of flex which can prevent parts from breaking under pressure.
Unlike PLA or ABS, PETG tends to ooze a bit and may leave strings of plastic on your print. You can fight this with increasing retraction and playing with hotend temperature, but if you use our filament presets in Slic3r or Prusa Control, we already did that for you and the amount of stringing is minimal. If you witness a tiny bit of stringing anyway, you can get rid of it by quickly blasting your finished prints with a heat gun.
If you can handle the oozing and strong adhesion, you’ll be left with a very durable print, that is considerably temperature resistant and usable for both indoor and outdoor use.
This PETG is made in-house by Prusa Research.
1.75 mm filament is manufactured with precision of +- 0.02 mm
Before printing, make sure the surface of heatbed is clean.
