Please Note: eSun has recently changed their filament spool material. You may receive a cardboard spool, instead of the plastic spools depicted above. This move means a more environmentally friendly design to their 3D filament spools which comfortably sit on your 3D printer's standard spool holder for smooth filament feeding.

It’s always exciting to see how far we’ve come in the world of 3D Printing, going from the original two polymers, ABS and PLA, to now having over 15 different types of Exotic Filaments to print with. And while many people may be surprised and somewhat overwhelmed at the many choices of polymers available, each of these polymers offer a unique set of strengths and weaknesses – with each one being particularly good at a specific range of applications.

One of the most widely used and popular plastics that has been introduced to 3D Printing over the past decade or so is PETG filament, which is the plastic that many bottles, containers and similar types of products are made from. It offers an impressive level of durability against impacts and scraping, but also a good level of flexibility if it’s not printed too thick. This is what makes our 1kg spools of Black 1.75mm PETG from eSUN such popular choices, since PETG seems to offer the best of both worlds while also being environmentally friendly and easy to recycle.

The PETG polymer, in addition to the above benefits, is also hydrophobic and resistant to absorbing water and moisture. This allows it to last a lot longer than other 3D Printer Filaments once opened, which is especially important if you live in very humid areas like along the coast. Furthermore, this polymer melts into liquid form very smoothly, which helps to improve extrusion and in turn boosts the potential quality of prints. These features, in conjunction with the high durability, impact strength and flexibility, make PETG plastic one of the most versatile and multifunctional plastics available to hobbyists and professionals alike.

Typical Applications for eSUN Solid Black PETG Filament:

PETG filament is a popular polymer that is used for making bottles and similar types of containers. This is in part due to the durability and flexibility of the plastic, as well as the fact that it’s environmentally friendly and easy to recycle. These characteristics also make it perfect for 3D Printing your own custom-designed bottles, electronics enclosures, as well as a range of other items that need to have good impact resistance, reasonable flexibility and a low impact on the environment.

As a final note, just to add a cherry to the top of the proverbial cake, this polymer also offers a unique feature that is important for 3D makers, which is the fact that it’s hydrophobic, meaning that it is resistant to liquids and moisture, giving it an extended lifespan compared to other polymers. And while other plastics may need to be baked or dried if left out in humid environments, PETG can withstand a lot more humidity and moisture without absorbing it, ensuring fewer printing problems and better overall printing results.

First time using PETG. Took a while to dial in the correct settings but once you get it, it prints really well. Has an awesome glossy finish. I had to dial my flow rate down to 90% which reduced the stringing and had to have quite high retraction. Printing it at 245°C and 80°C bed and have no issues with adhesion on stock ender 3 pro bed. Highly recommend this as your second filament if you're a beginner like me.


Very Hydroscopic

Prints well but I found I have to dry it before every print to prevent stringing and rough extrusions. I have not had these issues with other brands of PETG


Excellent Prints

Prints extremely well. I print at 240 deg C and the bed at 70. To minimise stringing, I had to change retraction to 5mm at 45mm/s and travel speed to 300 mm/s (max my printer can do).


Easy to print

After using 3 roles of this product, it has shown to be easy to print, strong and behaves in the heat. I like it a lot.

eSUN PETG Filament - 1.75mm Solid Black

Shenzhen eSUN Industrial Co., Ltd was established in 2002 in Shenzhen Special Economic Zone and has rapidly become one of the leading international suppliers of 3D Printing Filament. They specialise in research, development and production of degradable polymer materials, and have grown their catalogue of filaments to include PLA, ABS, PC, PVA, and a wide range of other polymers and copolymers.

Their list of exclusive filament formulas include unique materials like wood, aluminium, bronze and other materials to create highly specialised filaments that can stretch, bend, be moulded or otherwise behave in very unique ways. Their filaments are also commonly characterised by their absolutely round shape, extremely low diameter tolerance, uniform colours and impressively stable melting points. These characteristics, in combination with their long-term insistent policy of “Best Quality, Reasonable Price” has garnered them a large share of the market, with their reputation commonly preceding them within knowledgeable online and offline 3D Printing communities.

eSUN’s popularity in the industry has also helped to produce sustainable partnerships with many internationally famous 3D Printer manufacturers and distributors, with DIYElectronics having sole distributorship rights to provide their 3D Printing Filaments to South Africa and neighbouring African countries.
