Made from recycled materials, recycled rPETG offers a sustainable alternative to regular PETG.
Recycled rPETG (recycled polyethylene terephthalate glycol-modified) is a type of filament that is produced by recycling and reprocessing PETG (polyethylene terephthalate glycol-modified) plastic. PETG is a thermoplastic material known for its durability, transparency, and ease of printing.
Recycled rPETG is created by collecting and processing discarded or waste PETG products and filament scraps, then transforming them into new filament for 3D printing. This recycling process helps reduce waste and environmental impact by giving new life to PETG materials that would otherwise end up in landfills or incineration.
The technical properties of recycled rPETG can vary depending on the specific recycling and manufacturing processes employed. However, it generally retains many of the properties associated with PETG, such as excellent layer adhesion, impact resistance, and chemical resistance.
Here are the technical properties of recycled rPETG as per the provided ranges:
|Tensile strength||45 - 50 MPa|
|Tensile modulus||1550 - 2000 MPa|
|Tensile elongation||24 - 28%|
|Flexural strength||63 - 65 MPa|
|Flexural modulus||1600 - 2100 MPa|
|HDT (0.45 MPa)||70°C|
Please note that these values represent typical ranges for the technical properties of recycled rPETG. However, it's important to note that the exact properties can vary depending on the specific recycling process and the quality of the recycled material. It is advisable to refer to the manufacturer's specifications for precise information on a particular recycled rPETG filament.
