Tough and transparent
Brett Martin has expanded its transparent sheet range with the introduction of Marpet-g FS, a durable and impact-resistant PETg sheet that offers outstanding optical clarity and light transmission, superior chemical and fire resistance, and easy thermoformability, as well as being fully recyclable.
An amorphous polyester that does not crystallise when heated, Marpet-g FS can be successfully used for fabrication and vacuum forming, as well as both hot and cold bending techniques, as it does not whiten or crack. It also maintains its high impact strength during processing, thus enabling it to be easily laser-cut, sawn, drilled, welded, edged, riveted, die-punched or die-cut using steel blades, and can also be polished using mechanical, flame and solvent polishing techniques.
The fact that it can be processed in many different ways and formed into complex shapes, makes it the ideal alternative to the polycarbonate, solid acrylic and PVC sheets traditionally used in sign, display and store fixture applications, while its excellent resistance to most chemicals and atmospheric pollutants, and five year UV light also enables it to be used for outdoor signage.
Marpet-g FS is suitable for use in conjunction with screenprinting and direct-to-substrate digital printing and also provides a suitable surface for decoration with vinyl graphics.
Available in a variety of thicknesses, including 2mm, 4mm, 5mm and 6mm, Marpet-g FS is offered from Brett Martin in 2050mm x 3050mm sheets.
