What is our Color-Changing Filament? | PLA & PETG

In general, color-changing filament represents thermochromism in 3D printing. This means that the color of the material changes based on its temperature. Materials utilize this phenomenon through Leuco dyes used in color-changing items. In addition, using Leuco dyes will help you achieve a gradient from warmer (lighter) to colder colors (darker). In the 3D printing industry, Leuco […]

PETG vs PLA: Which One Should I Use?

Before starting your next printing project, it is important to understand the differences between PETG vs PLA. Though they are similar in several ways, there are still significant differences between the two filaments. PETG and PLA are two thermoplastics that belong to the polyester group of plastics. Known for ease of printing, these two soften […]

PETG Data Sheet | Safety & Recommendations

PETG Data Sheet, Description & Applications Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol, known as PETG or PET-G, is a thermoplastic polyester that delivers significant durability, chemical resistance, and formability for manufacturing. PETG is an adaptation of PET (Polyethylene terephthalate), where the ‘G’ stands for Glycol. In addition, it is added at a molecular level to offer different chemical […]
