Can you put Tritan glasses in dishwasher? The material is dishwasher safe, and Tritan glasses won’t warp or lose the luster and shine you enjoy with a traditional crystal wine glass.
Is Tritan better than acrylic? However, glasses made from these plastics aren’t quite as tough as those made from polycarbonate, Tritan, and polypropylene. The major difference is that acrylic and SAN plastic glasses can crack if dropped on tile or other hard surfaces, unlike unbreakable Tritan and polycarbonate plastic glasses.
What is Tritan glass made of? Tritan® crystal glass is a unique, internationally patented crystal glass invented by Schott Zwiesel. It is entirely lead and barium free, using titanium and zirconium oxides instead. It has a high-temperature production process that includes tempering.
Why do acrylic glasses crack? Higher temperature settings (over 140 degrees f) such as “heavy duty”, “sanitize”, or “pots & pans” will cause cracks. Turn off any “heat dry” or “heated dry” settings;; these high temperature settings will also cause polycarbonate to crack.
