Ultimaker, a global leader in professional 3D printing, announced the launch of Ultimaker PETG to provide users with a best-in-class standard material for industrial applications.  

Ultimaker has created and extensively tested material profiles to ensure a hassle-free and reliable PETG printing experience on its 3D printers. PETG, a Glycol Modified version of Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET), is one of the top three materials used for 3D printing, according to 2021 3D Printing Sentiment Index.

PETG is wear-, temperature- and chemical-resistant and therefore particularly well-suited for use in industrial applications, a growing segment as research showed more companies are using 3D printing to develop production tools.

The material seamlessly fits into the company’s ecosystem through NFC recognition and sets the standard for industrial use. The material’s usability, versatility and scalability make it easy to deploy across organizations – meaning fewer changeovers between materials are needed which results in increased efficiency.  

The material is also compatible with PVA and Breakaway support to enable a wide variety of models. Its users will additionally benefit from access to a complete package of technical, safety and compliance information.

“Adding Ultimaker PETG to our set of standard materials is a natural next step from the launch of our platform. It enhances our material portfolio as industrial use cases for 3D printing continue to rise. Its excellent all-round properties are a strong addition to our platform and are ideal for typical industrial environments and applications. Ultimaker PETG will further fuel creativity and innovation as users work hard to ensure the continuation of production and everyday life, despite the external challenges we have all faced.”

– Miguel Calvo, CTO at Ultimaker

The pandemic inspired engineers globally to transform and develop game-changing use cases with 3D printing. The versatility and standardized use of Ultimaker PETG will only further enable innovation across industries.
