PETG

PETG is short for polyethylene terephthalate glycol-modified and is a transparent type of Copolyester. PETG is the perfect filament to combine strength and ductility, which is why it's used in so many mechanical parts and robotics. It has great chemical resistance with good water, acidic and alkalic resistance.

TPU

TPU

Part of the Thermoplastic Elastomer family, Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU material) is a flexible, abrasion-resistant thermoplastic that can withstand impacts, and is resistant to many chemicals. TPU is versatile and used in many different industries. TPU is created by combining a standard polymer with a rubber. This creates a filament that is very similar to what is used in standard manufacturing for parts in automobiles and many household items.
While there are different types of TPU material, it can mainly be classified into two types: Polyether Polyurethane and Polyester Polyurethane. Both of these materials have different characteristics that can be suited to a specific need.
