Want to try a colour or material first before you commit to a full roll? Here is your chance to get a 50 gram sample of it first to give it a go.

  • These are off cuts from a full spool so do have a tendency to tangle. We recommend re spooling them onto an old spool. 
  • These spools are exposed to moisture. We recommend drying the filament out first before use.

The Pastel Collection

Brighten up your creations with our sustainable Pastel Collection, Aqua, Mint, Coral and Honey. This set of vibrant colours complement each other beautifully and sit well with their more traditional family members, Jet Black and Snow White. Perfect for turning your designs into a range of well balanced, eye catching products.

Our flagship R-PETG is sourced from leading local recyclers. It’s durable and easy to use, with exceptional visual and mechanical performance.

Recycled with care
We tackle plastic pollution while you create beautiful work with no compromise on quality
Tested by the best
Our recycled materials have been put to the strictest of performance tests and pass with flying colours
Optimal performance
We go the extra mile to make our materials universally compatible and offer you the support you need

rPETG. The strong, silent type.
PETG is a Glycol Modified version of Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET). It has the best of both worlds, combining the functionality of ABS and the easy printing of PLA in one material. It’s also a highly common plastic in recycling ecosystems globally, so we can consistently source great quality streams.

Great strength and impact resistance

High temperature tolerance

Excellent visual qualities

Source Traceability
PETG is an established plastic type, frequently used in the production of beverage, food and liquid containers. We source our rPETG from a highly consistent stream of high quality medical waste, working with one of the most established recyclers in the EU.

Sample preparation conditions:
Ultimaker 2+ with 0.4 mm nozzle was applied for preparing both tensile
and flexural specimens.
Line width: 0.35 mm | layer height: 0.2 mm | printing speed: 20 mm/s | retraction distance and speed: 9 mm and 35 mm/s | printing temperature: 230 ºC | fan speed: 40% | infill percentage: 100% | outline overlap: 35%
Testing conditions:
Five samples were tested and the value shared was the average value.
For tensile specimens, they were printed flatly (x-y direction ) and the printing direction
was in line with the tensile stretching direction. As for the flexural specimens, the printing direction was perpendicularly to the test direction.
