PETG-HT is an enhanced version of PETG, specifically designed to withstand high temperatures and exhibit excellent mechanical properties.
PETG-HT (High Temperature) is a modified version of PETG filament that is specifically engineered to have an increased glass transition temperature (Tg). The glass transition temperature is the temperature at which the material transitions from a rigid to a soft and pliable state. PETG-HT is designed to withstand higher heat environments compared to standard PETG filament.
Due to its higher Tg, PETG-HT is suitable for applications that involve exposure to elevated temperatures, such as functional prototypes, automotive components, mechanical parts, and industrial tooling. It offers improved dimensional stability, reduced warping, and enhanced resistance to heat deformation compared to regular PETG filament.
PETG-HT retains many of the desirable properties of PETG, including good layer adhesion, low shrinkage, and resistance to chemicals, making it a reliable choice for a wide range of 3D printing applications.
The technical properties of PETG-HT are as follows:
|Tensile Strength||50 - 75 MPa|
|Tensile Modulus||1500 - 3000 MPa|
|Tensile Elongation||2 - 5%|
|Flexural Strength||60 - 80 MPa|
|Flexural Modulus||1800 - 2800 MPa|
|HDT (0.45 MPa)||85 - 95°C|
|HDT (1.8 MPa)||70 - 80°C|
Please note that the values provided for the technical properties are approximate ranges and can vary depending on specific formulations, manufacturing processes, and testing conditions. For precise and up-to-date technical specifications, it is recommended to refer to the manufacturer's documentation or data sheets for the specific brand and formulation of PETG-HT filament.
