Caring for plastic glasses

 

This does not apply to acrylic plastic glasses – I’m afraid these are soon ruined and are a waste of money.  High quality plastic glasses made from Polycarbonate will generally be dishwasher safe to some degree and will withstand some impacts.  For plastic glasses that are guaranteed to be safe in any part of any dishwasher, and be microwave safe or be able to hold hot beverages (Liquor coffee, mulled wine, tea etc) then Posh Plastics glasses by Strahl are the only choice.

 

They can withstand a lot of force (see Richard Hammond trying to break them with a hammer here) and do not suffer from cracking or clouding in reaction to heat and sunlight.  Providing you care for your glasses, there is no reason why they will not last you for years of daily use, and keep looking great.

 

With plastic glasses, you really do get what you pay for.  Two glasses may look similar but be very different.  The higher cost of Strahl glasses is mainly due to the extremely long baking process, which leads to their increased durability, clarity and shine.  Cheaper glasses are cheap because they skip or shorten this process to save on the costs.  Strahl glasses use up to double to plastic to ensure that their glasses have the heavy feel of glassware.

 

Given the durability of these glasses, the extra initial spend is soon recouped by not replacing cheap glasses on a regular basis.

Dishwasher Safe 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.

*All of our polycarbonate products are safe wash in industrial and domestic dishwashers, up to 140°F/60°C, in the top rack.  Products from RB Drinks are safe to wash on cycles with temperatures up to 265°F/130°C.  This would be safe to wash in top-end domestic dishwashers on higher-intensity cycles.  Check the temperature ranges of your cycles with the manufacturer to ensure that you cause no damage to your glassware.
