Made from Recycled PETG Drinking Bottles
ReForm is a sustainable initiative within Formfutura to proactively contribute to making 3D printing more sustainably by reforming post-industrial waste streams into high-end filaments. The ideology behind ReForm is to a make 3D printing more sustainable – without having to make compromises on material properties – and yet keep it affordable.
ReForm rPET is made from post-industrial waste from a local bottle manufacturer.
The travel distance for the post-industrial shredded PETG waste is very limited!
The shredded post-industrial waste then needs to be compounded.
The compound needs to be dried before it can be extruded.
After being dried the compound is being extruded into ReForm rPET filament.

Was so easy to work with... was worried I would have all the hassles I have with ABS but no real issues I have to say - the only thing I can fault was that the "black", recycled product came out a different shade than the non-recycled product available from XD - because of this I had some colour variation in the one model that I used both for.
Prints excellent, thin plastic shrink can be damaged and let moisture in. Printed and it was wet as! But after a solid dry was beautiful.
Has been a dream to print on settings similar to PETG. Great to see recycled filament available.
