Except for the last 10 years or so, plastic wine glasses produced from polycarbonate were not popular amongst wine drinkers. The solely plastic wine glasses available were cheap, mediocre products that served little purpose other than to make tidy-up after a party a fewer troublesome matter. These plastic wine glasses were mostly thin, would break if knocked over and were frequently opaque in appearance. Not simply would they not last, but no one wants to drink alcohol from an mediocre item.
Plastic wine glasses have greatly improved in the last decade or so. Whereas previously upon closer inspection they did not closely replicate the real item, now they are pretty much identical, with only the keenest eye being able to tell the difference without picking a plastic glass up. Not entirely this, but they are less expensive due to more high tech manufacturing practices, safe for the environment and easy to clean.
Polycarbonate wine glasses are made in such a way that they are Almost unbreakable. This special plastic material is so strong that trials with several 1000 kilos of force have failed to shatter or break a single plastic wine glass. If it is strong enough for a few tonnes, imagine the duress it can be put through during everyday entertainment situations. Guests at BBQs, outdoor outings, work functions, bars, clubs and more can relish a drink or two without the fear of any wine glasses breaking. Not only does this represent less mess, but less replacement costs and a sounder drinking environment.
Although plastic wine glasses are by far the most popular form of polycarbonate bar ware, you can purchase virtually any kind of bar glass in plastic form. This includes beer glasses, champagne glasses, and more. In fact, you can kit out any bar wholly with plastic glasses. From the benefits defined above, you can see how plastic wine glasses are rising in popularity. Whether you are an occasional wine or beer consumer, a bar owner, or someone who loves holding gatherings outdoors, plastic wine glasses provide something for everyone.
