Prusament PETG Recycled 2kg

Parameters

What can you expect?

Prusament PETG Recycled is our own in-house made filament with ±0.05mm manufacturing tolerance. 100 % of the material consists of recycled Prusament PETG materials, so every batch has a different color. You can inspect the parameters of every spool we made at prusament.com. Check the sample spool!

Prusament extrusion line

Made only from recycled Prusament PETG

Waste produced during our in-house production of Prusament PETG is recycled and used as a base for Prusament PETG Recycled. There are no further additives or pigments in the mix.

Smart spool design to save material

We are constantly improving our filament spools. The latest iteration features a core from recycled cardboard and lightweight sides from recycled polycarbonate.

About PETG Recycled

Prusament PETG Recycled is our own in-house filament. 100% of the material consists of shredded Prusament PLA filaments that didn’t pass our strict control, so every batch has a different color. Due to its excellent layer-to-layer adhesion, PETG prints are ideal for indoor and outdoor waterproof applications. Furthermore, PETG is a tough material with good high-temperature resistance. The G in the acronym stands for a glycol-modified substance that is present during the manufacturing process. It modifies the properties of PET, so that it’s easier to print, less brittle, and clearer when printing with semi-transparent variants. PETG has a 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 has a healthy amount of flex which can prevent parts from breaking under pressure. We use PETG to print parts for our printers!

Basic Attributes

Good high-temperature resistanceWorse details than PLA, for example
Easy to print

Possibility of stringing

Low shrinking and warping

Poor bridging characteristics

High strength and durabilityDifferent color with every batch
Easier to sand than PLA (softer, less melting)  

Beginners tips & tricks

Unlike PLA or ABS, PETG tends to ooze a bit and may leave strings of plastic on your print. We suggest drying the filament before printing, as described here. If stringing still occurs, you may further counter it by increasing retraction and playing with hotend temperature, but if you use our filament presets in Prusa Slicer, we already did that for you and the amount of stringing should be minimal. Or, you can get rid of the strings by briefly blasting your finished prints with a heat gun.

Notes

This rPETG is made in-house by Prusa Research.

1.75 mm filament is manufactured with precision of +- 0.05 mm

Before printing, make sure the surface of heatbed is clean as described in 3D Printing Handbook.

The 2kg spool won't fit the standard spoolholder, please download and print the 2kg spoolholder.

To dry the filament, please follow the instructions in our article.
