3DXPro™ Low-Gloss PETG


3DXPro™ Low-Gloss PETG Filament  

3DXPro™ Low-Gloss PETG is a specialty grade of PETG that offers a low-gloss, high-tech look.  The low-gloss helps hide the layer lines and offers a more "technical look" to the parts as compared to higher gloss filaments.  We love printing with PETG, but sometimes we don't want the part to look like a shiny toy.  Our low-gloss PETG is perfect for applications that require the performance of PETG, but a more sophisticated fit and finish.  

Please note:  The producer of the low-gloss additive we use in this formulation has discontinued supply and unfortunately we are discontinuing the Low Gloss PETG.  

Benefits of 3DXMAX® Low-Gloss PETG include:

  • Low-gloss sheen - excellent finish
  • Superior Chemical Resistance vs. ABS
  • BPA Free
  • Amorphous:  Low shrink and warp
  • Low moisture absorption:  3X lower vs. ABS
  • Very low odor emitted during printing

General Print Recommendations:

  • Extruder Temp:  Low Gloss PETG does NOT printer the same as standard PETG.  Ideal extruder temp is 260 to 280°C, or higher depending on your printer / thermocouple set-up - some users report requiring temps up to 290°C to obtain optimal layer bonding.  The low-gloss additive in this material requires a higher extruder temp to achieve good layer bonding than you usually use for standard PETG.  You may need to increase nozzle temps by 20°C or higher than standard PETG settings if you have layer bonding issues.  
  • Platform Temp:  60 - 80°C
  • Platform Prep:  Clean glass w/ Kapton Tape, PVA-based glue, or hairspray
  • Support:  Our Aquatek water soluble support works great to create complex parts.  This support can be found HERE.  
  • Drying Instructions:  Please see the following instructions for when you want to dry out this filament, HERE.
