Catering Products Direct Reusable Plastic Glassware has been manufactured from clear, crystal polystyrene material and is known as our ‘Econ’ range.

This Plastic Polystyrene Glassware has a high level of transparency and is very similar in appearance to our Elite Polycarbonate Plastic Glassware. Rigid and robust, just like the Elite range but are a lower cost option.

Our Polystyrene plastic range of glassware can withstand temperatures up to 100 degrees.

Polystyrene plastic glasses are a superb alternative to breakable glass, they are ideal for use at large events and venues or outside catering such as weddings and festivals.

The Econ plastic glasses are rigid and robust and have good clarity, however they may crack or break if dropped onto a hard surface or have too much pressure applied to them, for example, if they are stood on.

If you are looking for virtually unbreakable plastic glassware, please consider our Elite Plastic Glassware made from sturdy polycarbonate plastic.

Both plastic glassware collections (the Econ and Elite plastic glasses) have a CE marked range. https://cateringproductsdirect.co.uk/product-category/bbp/wine-glasses/ce-marked/ https://cateringproductsdirect.co.uk/product-category/bbp/polycarbonate/ce-marked-plastic-polycarbonate-glassware/. These glasses are suitable for use in licensed establishments, such as bars, pubs, restaurants, hotels and cafes where it is required by law to ensure you are serving the correctly measured amount of certain types of alcohol. The CE measurement mark can be to the brim or a line marked on the vessel. It was previously known as government stamped (GS) or crown stamped glassware prior to 2006. Plastic glasses used as brim measures can have the CE marking on either the side or the base of the plastic glass and apart from the line. You need CE marked plastic glasses when selling alcohol if using the plastic glass to measure the amount to serve. You do not need CE marked plastic glasses if you are serving alcohol free of charge, using the products at home, or using an alternative measurement unit that has been legally verified in the same way. Other acceptable measuring devices such as CE marked optics and jiggers are sometimes used. Visit Catering Products Direct Barware for optics, jiggers and much more https://cateringproductsdirect.co.uk/product-category/genware/barware/.

When the plastic glasses eventually reach the end of their very long life, they are ground into pellets and remanufactured into further goods within other industries, they are therefore 100% recyclable.

Our Econ range of Plastic Glassware has been tested in glass washers with a standard solution in excess of 100 times and shown no visible signs of deterioration. If using a normal dishwasher, we would recommend the Plastic Glassware is washed on the top shelf only. The Econ polystyrene plastic glassware can also be hand washed in a mild detergent and dried with soft cloth.
