PET

The best of both worlds!

With PET you get served a strong, very clear and easy to print filament.
PET brings together the strengths of both ABS and PLA. It combines a high impact resistance and a surprising flexibility with very low warping. This specific filament is hydrophobic and therefore does not absorb water. Because of its many TOP-features, PET is the perfect addition to any filament collection.
  • High clarity
  • Combines strength with flexibility
  • Almost no "warping"
  • Hydrophobic (Does not absorb water)
  • Food Contact Acceptable
