    PETG 1mm applications

    Face shield

    PETG's optical clarity, strength, durability, and affordability make it an ideal material for face shields. It can withstand direct impact without shattering and protect against airborne particles. Additionally, PETG is environmentally friendly and easily recyclable, making it a sustainable choice for creating protective equipment.

    Cosmetics POS

    PETG is the ideal choice when strength is an important requirement for a high-traffic display. It is durable, safe, and finishes smoothly for a professional-looking final product. It is environmentally friendly and can be easily recycled, making it a sustainable choice for creating cosmetic point-of-sale displays.


    PETG is a suitable material for food container lids because it is FDA-approved for food contact and safe for use in food packaging. It’s sturdy, lightweight, and has excellent thermal properties, allowing it to seal both hot and cold liquids. PETG lids are easily recyclable and incredibly durable, so they won't easily crack or break when dropped.

    Machine guard

    PETG is a suitable material for machine guards because it is strong and impact-resistant. It’s also transparent, which allows for visibility of the machinery, and is resistant to chemicals, making it a good choice for guards that may be exposed to harsh substances.


    PETG is a suitable material for dental retainers because it’s strong, transparent, and biocompatible. It can withstand the daily wear and tear of regular use while providing a comfortable and secure fit to a patient's teeth. PETG is also FDA-approved as it does not contain hazardous toxins or chemicals, making it safe for use in the mouth.

    Reasons to choose PETG for your application:

    • Transparent, strong, and semi-rigid
    • Durable and impact-resistant
    • Chemically resistant
    • Environmentally friendly and recyclable
    • FDA-approved for food contact
    • Safe for use in food packaging and medical applications
    • Great thermal characteristics
