PETG is often considered an in between material to Acrylic and Polycarbonate because it has a higher impact resistance than Acrylic and has a lower price point than Polycarbonate. Although its impact strength is not as close to Polycarbonate as many think, it is often tough enough to meet the needs of many impact resistance applications. With this in mind, many people adjust application requirements because PETG is also much easier to fabricate than Polycarbonate offering deep draws (with no drying), with high part definition and complex die cutting operations. PETG can also be mechanically fastened rivets or bonded with adhesives and ultrasonic welding. PETG can also be easily decorated using various painting and silk screening operations which make it well suited for point of purchase applications.
