FormFutura® HDGlass PETG

About The Materials 

HDglass is a high performance PETG type of 3D printer with unsurpassed 3D printing properties and improved mechanical strength, flexibility, toughness and heat resistance.

Materials Documentations

HDglass is a high performance filament based on an unique PETG blend resulting in an amorphous, high strength, high gloss and ultra-transparent 3D printer filament. HD stands for “Heavy Duty”, as HDglass is developed to have an optimal thermal stability and by that perfect 3D printing flowing behaviour, resulting in a very easy to print 3D printer filament with a remarkable high gloss, transparency and excellent properties with respect to strength, toughness and temperature resistance.

Unique features

  • Extremely transparent and high gloss

  • 90% optical light transmittance with only 1% of haze

  • Easy to print

  • Nearly warp-free and perfect inter-layer adhesion

    • Good first layer adhesion to a heated glass print bed and many other surfaces

  • Compatible for printing at high speed

  • Odourless processing/printing

  • High strength and toughness compared to similar materials

  • Watertight printing

*) Above displayed settings are meant as guidance to find your optimal print settings. These ranges in settings should work for most printers, but please do feel free to experiment outside these ranges if you think it is suitable for your printer. There are a lot of different type of printers, hot-ends and printer offsets that it is extremely difficult to give an overall one-size-fits-all setting.
