Polyester is widely extruded for the packaging of food and medical products. PETG is more durable than Acrylic and has excellent clarity, chemical resistance and has good forming properties. Thick gauge PETG is also widely used within the fabrication industry for point of purchase in internal applications for its added features as compared with Acrylic.
PETG co-polyesters in solid colours are now being favoured over traditional PVC based materials, especially in fire retardant applications within the building industry. This is due to PETG’s non halogen/non toxic properties in a fire break-out environment.
