PET is one of the most trusted and commonly used plastics in the world; water bottles, food containers, clothing and more! Our Filaments.ca PETG formulation has been continuously improved since 2013 and is now a customer favorite; preferred over other brands due to its consistency, ease of use, successful printing, durability and price!
Now spooled on a 100% recycled cardboard spool.

PET/G is stronger than just PET and can achieve very strong and sturdy prints. Our Polyester PETG premium filament, also known as glycol modified PET, or less commonly as GPET (the G means it’s been glycol modified for extra durability) is a high performance material that is highly durable and impact resistant. It is also more flexible compared to PLA or ABS and can be safely recycled.
PETG offers excellent clarity, light transmission (in the translucent colors) and high gloss. PETG is also a food contact approved material, is BPA free and prints without any odor or smell!
Once you've mastered the basics for printing with PETG, you will find it to be easy to print with and comes out great in a wide temperature range. It's great even for large flat prints due to its very low shrinkage. Combination of strength, low shrinkage, smoother finish and higher heat resistance make PETG an ideal everyday alternative to PLA and ABS.
Other features include great layer adhesion, chemical resistance including acids and water. Our PETG filament is characterized by consistent quality, high dimensional accuracy and has been extensively tested on a variety of printers; yielding very strong and precise prints.
The Filaments.ca Brand Advantage:
It's the best selling PETG in Canada for a reason! Our premium grade PETG is a result of continually improving formulation based on feedback from our customers & the 3D printing community. Selling in such high volumes gives the Filaments.ca brand an edge over competitors by being able to analyze trends accurately and implement preventive actions to ensure the high quality of our product is maintained and improved.
All our products are stored in and shipped from our own fully controlled warehouse. Having full control over storage conditions, product packaging as well as maintaining a FIFO (First In First Out) storage system is crucial in maintaining optimal freshness of our 3D printing consumables.

|Made from 100% Grade A Virgin Raw Materials: We've seen first hand what prints from recycled filaments can look like, issues such as visible discoloration and other inconsistencies are common. From the very beginning, we've always guaranteed in writing that our filaments are made from pure grade virgin resin, giving you consistent high quality prints, beautiful look and feel.|
|Controlled using Non-Contact Laser Diameter Gauge: Rapid, precise and repeatable measurements to exact dimensional tolerances. Such gauges allow us to maintain consistent high quality filament by automatically stopping a production line the moment a non-conforming measurement is detected. So regardless of the 3D printer you are using, the consistently round diameters provide optimum flow through the extruder nozzle.|
|Continuous Line Production: Filament is extruded and spooled onto the reel in one continuous motion, producing tangle free spools that will unwind freely and smoothly from the start of the roll to the end.|
|New Non-Brittle Formula: Print with confidence knowing that the filament will not break during a print job, while still inside the printer or just sitting in storage. Our new formula is optimized for strength and performance.|
|Tested on a Wide Range of 3D Printers: We repeatedly and accurately test our filaments in-house, but more importantly, we act based on feedback from thousands of customers all across Canada (Thank you!)|
|Compliant, Registered and Certified: Our filaments comply with the Restriction of Hazardous Substance (RoHS) directive and certified by SGS. Why is it important? It basically means the filaments are free from lead and other potentially hazardous substances including cadmium, mercury and chromium VI, among others.|
|Moisture Protected Packaging: Some 3D printing materials can be negatively affected by moisture, that's why every product made by us is packed inside an air tight package along with a moisture absorbing desiccant pack. Furthermore, we've taken an extra precautionary step and will also ship you 1 free resealable bag as well as 1 free extra desiccant pack for every spool that you order. Regardless of the type of filament or the manufacturer. This will enable you to easily keep your filaments at an optimal storage condition and free from dust or dirt AFTER opening the original packaging, so its always ready for your next print.|
|Produced According to a Standardized Color System: Every colored filament we manufacture is formulated according to a standard color system such as the Pantone Color Matching System. This is important in order to ensure consistent color shade with every batch as well as allowing us to produce specialty colors such as metallic and custom colors.|
