No less than 44 % of total waste* is generated by plastics. The 3D printing community provides a powerful opportunity to make current manufacturing methods more sustainable, so we have challenged ourselves to create a filament made from recycled material that is a serious alternative to filaments made from virgin raw materials.
We are now proud to say that with the new Ultrafuse® rPET we have more than met the challenge. The “r” stands for recycled, as Ultrafuse® rPET is made from recycled PET medical equipment. Components printed with Ultrafuse® rPET print, look and perform as outstandingly as our PET filament made from virgin raw material.
Recommended: Process materials in a well ventilated room, or use professional extraction systems. For further and more detailed information please consult the corresponding material safety data sheets.
