OMEGA-CLEAR ® Polyester Terephthalate Glycol (PETG) sheet is a transparent and extruded co-polyester that contains glycol.

PETG has many applications and is extremely ease to manipulate and form even at low temperatures. It is a new generation material which exhibits excellent optical clarity combined with impact strength second only to Polycarbonate.

OMEGA-CLEAR ® can be extruded by itself or compounded with additives in order to provide tinted, translucent or opaque products. When extruded into sheet and file, OMEGA-CLEAR ® can be produced with a variety of surface finishes from a low lustre matte to a coarse lenticular pattern. It can also be co-extruded with similar or compatible copolymers.
