|Prime PETG 6763|
The most outstanding features about Prime PETG 6763 are high stiffness and good impact resistance at low temperature. It is clear and easy to thermoform. Prime PETG 6763 can be sterilized with gamma rays, is resistant to stress whitening and the scrap is recyclable.
Ideal for applications such as:
Recommended forming temperatures for forming Prime PETG 6763 are; Mold temperature = 100-140°F Sheet temperature = 280-300°F Plug temperature = 250-275°F Cycle times in seconds = 3-10 for <.050 thick sheet. Forming pressures = 30-40 PSI. Polarized lenses or a light box should be used to check for residual stress in the part.
Scratches can be repaired with a heat gun. Sawing and routing are best suited for cutting Prime PETG 6763. Circular and band saws generally produce the smoothest cut. Circular saws- number of teeth = 2-4 /in., blade thickness – 3/32 in. for sheet .040 - .375, use 1/8 in. for thicker sheet. The blade tooth rake angle should be 5-10º. For routing use a two-flute bit and run at 10,000 to 20,000 rpm. When drilling use speed of 1750 rpm. Bonding can be done by solvent or adhesives.
