Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol, or PETG, is a clear thermoplastic that can be formed into a number of shapes, making it suitable for use in a broad range of applications.
Benefits of PETG
Formable, easy to fabricate, form bond or decorate
Capable of deep thermoforming draws
More impact resistant than acrylic
