Good/inexpensive source for PETG plastic

Post by srspicer » Wed Nov 23, 2016 6:56 pm

Hello All,

I am looking for a good source for PETG, clear plastic. I need to do some vac forming and it needs to be thin, .015, .010. I have looked around and I can only find sources that 'also' carry the stuff. I'm looking for a good online plastics supplier.

Any help greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!

S.

While they only have 020 PETG Clear listed, it will thin on the draw. :D

PETG Vivak - Sheet & Film


For thinner stuff, 010 and 015, best I have found is on Amazon.com - But it's
polycarbonate (which is good for thermal forming too).

I know that's not what the instructions say, but the kit's wrong anyway.
