What is PETG plastic? PETG is the abbreviation of Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol. It has the same chemical composition as PET plastic but with the addition of glycol. PETG is less brittle than PET, it also has a softer and more pliable exterior surface than PET. Although lightweight, PETG material has high impact strength. It has excellent toughness, chemical resistance and easy thermoforming properties. It is naturally colorless with a high transparency, and most importantly it is fully recyclable. Thanks to these properties, PETG is versatile and can be available in a wide range of diverse indoor and outdoor applications. So PETG plastic recycling with various recycling machines like PETG plastic granulator and related plastic balers makes great sense.
