PETG (Polyethylene terephthalateglycol)
Polyethylene terephthalateglycol. This polyester plastic is the middle ground between PMMA and PC. It is crystal clear and has good vacuum shape properties. Its heat resistance is limited, as it is lower than that of PMMA and PC. PET-G is self-extinguishing and suited for direct contact with foodstuffs. A drawback is its susceptibility to scratches, just like PC.
