Reflow of the Netherlands have pioneered an approach to recycle discarded plastic into a range of exceptional sustainable materials for 3D printing. We source the highest quality streams from leading recyclers and work closely with scientific institutions to optimise our range. When you print with Reflow you’re supporting an established network of recyclers, Makers and designers in tackling plastic pollution while co-creating meaningful work and now they have the pleasure in offering you the new Seaglass range of recycled PETG filament.
Reflow rPETG Recycled filament
Chemical name: Polyethylene Terephthalate - Glycol Modified
Source of plastic: The Netherlands
Description: Our flagship rPETG is sourced from leading local recyclers. It’s durable and easy to use, with exceptional visual and mechanical performance.
Seaglass available colours: Artic Breeze~ Burnt Amber ~ Dark Emerald ~ Midsummers Glow ~ Nautical Blue ~ Seafoam Green
Diameter: 1.75 mm. ±0.05mm / 2.85 mm. ±0.07mm
Net filament weight: 1 KG
Filament length: ∼357m / ∼137m
Print temperature: 230c - 245c
Platform Temperature: 60c-80c ~ rPETG requires bed temperatures of 60-80 C while printing. Bed adhesion is often good, and minor issues around adhesion can be easily remedied by coating the build surface with acrylic based glue-sticks or hairsprays.
Fan Speed: 50%-100% - This is model size and geometry dependant.
