Overview
PETG is a transparent thermoplastic sheet material with outstanding thermoformability and good impact resistance.

PETG is an excellent choice for applications that require:

  • Durability
  • Deep draw thermoforming
  • Clarity

PETG Standard Sizes

SHEET 48"x96" (0.03"-0.5" thick)
  • Length, width, thickness, and diameter tolerances vary by size and by manufacturer
  • Custom sizes and colors available upon request
  • Many of our plastic materials are available as films with thicknesses of 0.029" or less

PETG Grades
