Prusament PETG Recycled 2kg

What can you expect?

Prusament PETG Recycled is our own in-house made filament with ±0.05mm manufacturing tolerance. 100 % of the material consists of recycled Prusament PETG materials, so every batch has a different color. You can inspect the parameters of every spool we made at prusament.com. Check the sample spool!

Made only from recycled Prusament PETG

Waste produced during our in-house production of Prusament PETG is recycled and used as a base for Prusament PETG Recycled. There are no further additives or pigments in the mix.

Smart spool design to save material

We are constantly improving our filament spools. The latest iteration features a core from recycled cardboard and lightweight sides from recycled polycarbonate.

Guaranteed ± 0.05 mm Manufacturing Precision

Even our recycled PETG material is subjected to strict QA control, so you can be sure that your prints will go smoothly and without a hitch.

High Quality You Can Check Yourself

With every spool, you have the unique option to inspect its manufacturing parameters yourself. Scan a QR code on the spool to see all details online (check the sample spool).

About PETG

PETG is a very tough material with good thermal resistance. Its use is universal but especially suitable for mechanical parts and both indoor and outdoor use. PETG has almost no warping, so printing large objects isn’t a problem. We use PETG to print parts for our printers!

PETG is one of our favorite materials for 3D printing. It’s almost as easy to print as PLA, but it can offer many mechanical properties that PLA prints just cannot achieve. The G in the acronym PETG stands for Glycol which is added during the manufacturing process. Glycol modifies the properties of PET, so that it’s easier to print, less brittle and clearer when printing with semi-transparent variants. PETG has low thermal expansion, so even when printing big objects, and without an enclosure, it rarely lifts from the bed and warps. In addition to that, PETG is ductile. It has a healthy amount of flex which can prevent parts from breaking under pressure.

Unlike PLA or ABS, PETG tends to ooze a bit and may leave strings of plastic on your print. You can fight this with increasing retraction and playing with hotend temperature, but if you use our filament presets in Prusa Slicer, we already did that for you and the amount of stringing is minimal. If you witness a tiny bit of stringing anyway, you can get rid of it by quickly blasting your finished prints with a heat gun.

If you can handle the oozing and strong adhesion, you’ll be left with a very durable print, that is considerably temperature resistant and usable for both indoor and outdoor use.

Bought 3 spools, all a drab olive green. Not a lovely color but fine for iterating on a design. However my printer has just started clicking and jammed up for the third time with this filament on a long print, something that hasn’t happened in 7 or 8 prior spools of regular Prusa PETG. Something is different here…

I'm on my third spool of recyclate and so far so good, only the spools could be more regular , or at least not so tangled. Otherwise, printing works pretty well even on normal factory settings...

No problems at all with the recycled PETG. Some have complained that the spool winding was rough (not at neat as the regular spools) but mine hasn't tangled at all.Behaviour and temperatures same as regular.Print results same.I like the charcoal grey colour!Very very happy with it. Good job Prusa! 5+ stars.
