PCTG Filament för 3D-skrivare

PCTG filament! Alternative for PETG!

We have expanded the range with PCTG 3D filament from Fiberlogy and Azurefilm.

What is PCTG Filament ?

PCTG is a new material on the market specially developed for 3D printers that can advantageously replace PETG filament. So what is the advantage of PCTG?

Advantages of PCTG vs PETG

  • Easy to print with, low shrinkage and keeps stable dimensions on your 3D prints
  • Has up to 20x higher impact resistance than PETG
  • High resistance to chemicals
  • Can be used for products with food - BPA free filament
  • Transparent version provides high transparency
  • Withstand temperatures up to 76°C (Fiberlogy)

Prints get a nice and even surface.

What is required of your 3D printer to print with PCTG?

PCTG can withstand higher temperatures than PETG, this also means that you need a 3D printer that can handle a temperature of about 230-270 °C and a build platform that can handle about 80-110°C. You can advantageously use various adhesives such as magigoo, 3Dlac. Before using PCTG, double-check that your hotend can handle these temperatures, many hotends have a so-called PFTE tube internally, which causes it to start melting at temperatures above 240°C. You can often easily update your hotend with, for example, our products from Phaetus.

Other good to know for printing

  • You don't need an enclosed printer or heated build chamber to print with PCTG.
  • Just like PETG, they belong to the same family of polymers, if you have a printer with a glass build surface, both materials can stick very hard and if you are unlucky, it can destroy your glass build platform. Preferably use buildtak, PEI sheets, Tape or the like

Choice of manufacturer:

  • For simpler printers such as creality etc
    - Azurefilm PCTG can be printed at similar temperatures to PETG,
    230-240 °C is enough on the hotend, 60-80 °C on the build platform
  • Fiberlogy PCTG can withstand higher temperatures, is stronger, but requires 250-270 °C on your hotend
