Marpet-g FS now available in 0.75mm, 1mm and 1.5mm

Marpetg FS Thin Range PETg

Brett Martin has added three thin gauge options to its Marpet-g FS PETg range: 0.75mm, 1mm and 1.5mm. The clear and tough sheet that offers excellent thermoforming properties, is now available in thicknesses from 0.75mm up to 12mm.

Compared to traditional transparent materials, PETg continues to maintain its toughness for lower sheet thicknesses, making it a more cost-effective product for designers and fabricators. The thinner gauge Marpet-g FS range is easy to fabricate and is the perfect choice for thermoforming applications and fabrication projects that require outstanding optical clarity and light transmission. Typical applications include a wide range of sign & display applications, point of sale equipment, signage, illuminated advertising signs, displays and graphic arts.

Key benefits of Marpet-g FS are the exceptional ease of workability and thermoformability it offers, particularly at low temperatures. PETg is an amorphous polyester that does not crystallize when heated, preventing the sheet to whiten or crack. The sheet does not absorb moisture and does not require pre-drying, reducing processing time which will help thermoforming manufacturers to save both time and money.

Marpet-g FS sheets are suitable for both screen printing and direct-to-substrate digital printing and bond easily with solvent based adhesives. It also maintains good impact strength during processing, which means that in addition to thermoforming it can be easily laser-cut, sawn, drilled, welded, edged, riveted, die-punched or die-cut using steel blades. Polishing of PETg is possible using mechanical, flame and solvent polishing techniques. In addition, Marpet-g FS is resistant to most chemicals and atmospheric pollutants, as well as UV light for up to 5 years. It has a good fire performance, is 100% recyclable and the resin is FDA approved for food contact.

Marpet-g FS is available in a variety of thicknesses including 0.75mm, 1mm, 1.5mm 2mm, 3mm, 4mm, 5mm, 6mm, 8mm,  10mm and 12mm in 1250mm x 2500mm or 2050mm x 3050mm sheet dimensions.
