Description

Pacur® PETG FOAM is a co-extruded combination of PETG Copolyester resin with a proprietary foamed PETG core. It offers advantages over traditional materials where low weight and sustainability are larger parts of an application’s fitness for use requirements.

It is a reliable, safe alternative to high impact polystyrene (HIPS) in the opaque rigid medical packaging market. It also shows considerable manufacturing improvements over HIPS in terms of processing, waste reduction, and reduced cleaning; all resulting in lower overall processing costs.
