3D Printlife BioPETG

3D Printlife BioPETG

BioPETG is a professional grade PETG specially formulated to be consumed by bacteria once it enters a landfill to energy facility or a commercial compost. 3D Printlife's proprietary bio-additive technology simply provides a food source for the bacteria living in those environments. BioPETG maintains the strength, heat resistance, printing characteristics, and post-process capabilities of PETG in every way.

How does BioPETG work?

BioPETG meets both ASTM D5338 & D5511 standards for biodegradability.  

ASTM D5338 determines the degree and rate of aerobic biodegradation of plastic materials by measuring a percentage of conversion of carbon in the sample to carbon dioxide. ASTM D5511 measures anerobic biodegradation.

BioPETG™ combines many of the benefits of ABS with the ease of printing associated with PLA in one material:

  • High impact resistance
  • High strength and durability
  • Excellent layer adhesion
  • Excellent pliability
  • Very low shrinkage, therefore little to no warping making it deal for large prints
  • Smooth finish
  • No heated bed required
  • High temperature resistance
  • Odorless printing
  • Excellent chemical and water resistance
  • Excellent geometric accuracy
  • Can be sterilized
  • Strong but flexible (ideal for drones, mechanical parts, & robotics)
  • FDA compliant

As with all materials there is a settings "sweet spot" that will vary from one printer to another. BioPETG™ is no different, but once you're dialed in printing with BioPETG™ is a dream. Here are some general setting guidelines:

  • Set your nozzle temperature between 235°C and 250°C.
  • Print with cooling fan at 100%
  • A heated bed is not required but start between 70°C - 80°C if available.
  • Set print speed around 55mm/sec or less.
  • Try starting with an additional .2mm gap in the Z axis to avoid skimming
