PET - Polyethylene terephthalate

PET (polyethylene terephthalate) is a polyester used for the manufacture of plastic bottles, packaging or credit cards. PET is particularly used for its resistance.

PET is a tough and sturdy material and a terrific alternative to PLA and ABS. It releases no fumes during printing and has very low shrinkage.
