High quality plastic glassware and melamine crockery.                                            

Posh Plastics source and supply plastic glasses regarded as the best quality and most glass-like plastic glasses available globally, with the weight and clarity of crystal whilst being safe to use in the dishwasher. Cheaper acrylic plastic glasses will fracture if subjected to heat, our high quality plastic glasses are even safe left in direct sunlight - perfect for yachts, pools and outdoor dining.

Strahl Plastic Glasses

For 13 years, Posh Plastics has sold Strahl glassware; for 11 years it was all we sold.  This range is no longer available for us to sell.  Along with our other suppliers, we also have a new supplier, Thunder, These products are an excellent replacement for customers familiar with Strahl.  The Thunder highballs and tumblers are better than Strahl in that they are all designed to stack, so you won't have glasses locking together that have been put inside each other.  The wine glasses are better in that they are made with a single-mould process, so there are no visible join lines as the two pieces of the unit are put together.  

Kasia from Taunton has been a client for six years.  Here is what she had to say about the Thunder products in comparison to Strahl:

I love all the items – I think they are pretty much same quality as the other ones we are using. And there is a bonus – tumblers don’t have individual stickers underneath JJJ I know it sounds silly but you can’t imagine what a nightmare it is to remove stickers from 100 cups ;) Water bottles and pitchers – all lovely! Many thanks for everything J

Our lighter weight products by GET and RB Drinks are still made from tough polycarbonate and are all dishwasher safe.  The glasses in these ranges offer excellent value for money.  Many of these products are available in a range of colours.

Melamine plastic crockery and tableware.       

Our melamine plates and bowls are glazed to give a finish like porcelain.  It is hard-wearing and dishwasher safe and comes in 3 stylish designs: Diamond White, Portofino and Cambridge.  There is also a complementing range of melamine cups and saucers in a range of colours. The Inspire range of crockery is almost identical to the GET melamine, so identical that they are impossible to tell apart by holding them.  Inspire is available in a range of bright, vibrant colours and is about two thirds of the price of the premium melamine crockery.

About Plastic Glassware

Plastic glasses are made from a variety of different plastics.  The cost of item is based on the quantity of plastic used, the quality of the plastic and the length of the annealing process used to set the plastic rigid.

A glass may have the heavy feel of a normal high quality glass but, if it's made from acrylic or low grade polycarbonate, then any exposure to heat could fracture or cloud your plastic glasses.  Dishwashers, microwaves, exposure to direct sunlight and even washing-up water could ruin a glass that looks and feels great in the shop.

At Posh Plastics we only sell plastic glasses made from high quality polycarbonate.  All of our products are safe to use in the dishwasher and to expose to heat.  Even our lighter weight products have been tested through 2000 dishwasher cycles.

The Thunder plastic glasses are designed to be made with more plastic, to give extra weight and a more realistic feel to those drinking from them.  Many people will drink from a Thunder glass and have no idea that the glass they have just used is made from plastic.

The annealing, or baking process, that the glasses go through, bakes the plastic to increase the durability.  As this represents the highest cost to the production process, many manufacturers shorten this stage.  Thunder glasses are considered the clearest, most durable plastic glasses available because of the length of this baking process and are therefore slightly more expensive.

Given that all polycarbonate glassware will last quite a long time, the cost difference over time makes Thunder a better value product than cheaper plastic glasses.
