PETG is a versatile, transparent plastic which is very strong and impact and chemical resistant. It is easy to work with and suitable for numerous applications, both indoors and outdoors. Due to its high fire-safety rating, it is the only transparent plastic authorised for use in airports. It is also suitable for use with foodstuffs.
PETG sheet, a thermoplastic polyester, is an extrusion product and it therefore has a low thickness tolerance.
PETG is stronger and more impact resistant than acrylic, is easy to work with and has multiple uses. In addition, the material has an excellent fire classification (B1) and is the only transparent plastic to comply with stringent airport safety requirements. As a food-grade certified plastic, PETG is also suitable for applications in the foodstuffs industry.
We supply extruded PETG sheets of various thicknesses, for use indoors and outdoors. You can choose from a wide range of transparent colours and various finishes, such as crystal clear, opal, anti-reflective and matt.
