Taulman T-Glase PETT
T-Glase PETT is designed to be quite strong, and in that department it delivers. It is FDA approved for use in food containers and other applications that require direct food contact. While it isn’t biodegradable, T-Glase is considered to be 100% reclaimable, and is perfectly compatible with extruders that convert failed prints back into usable filament. With a low shrinkage it’s easy to print flat surfaces, and it has impressive bridging performance. To top it all of, T-Glase generates no odors or fumes while printing.
Due to PETT’s high moisture resistance it is commonly used in water bottles and other drink containers, and its high mechanical strength makes it ideal for use in trays and other packaging solutions. Thanks to its good insulating properties it finds use in the electronics industry in applications such as components of photovoltaic cells, and it has even been used in fabrics.
