Carbon Fiber PETG

CF-PETG (Carbon Fiber Polyethylene Terephthlate Glycol) is very similar to Standard PETG but is blended and composited with carbon fiber strands. This reduces the plastics tendency to warp and reduces the flexibily of the material making it more suited for applications that require rigid strong parts.
