What Does Dishwasher Safe Mean?
Dishwasher safe means that the mugs have been treated at some stage of the plastic process to ensure that they can withstand the prolonged higher temperatures of a dishwasher and when used with dishwasher type detergents so that the plastic is not damaged.
How Are Promotional Plastic Mugs Made Dishwasher Safe?
It is not the final item like a plastic mug or cup that is made dishwasher safe but the plastic that the mug or cup is made from. The plastic used for dishwasher safe mugs and cups has a higher melting point that then temperatures during a dishwasher cycle. If the plastic used were to have a lower melting point than the dishwasher temperature then the item could melt or break up inside the dishwasher during a cycle leading to damage to the machine itself.
Dishwasher Proof Glass
Most glass products are generally able to deal with the high temperatures of a dishwasher. This is because most glass is ‘annealed’ during its manufacturing process. Annealed means allowed to cool slowly to remove stresses within the structure of the final glass and making it better tolerant of higher temperatures. Glass can also be ‘tempered’ which uses thermal or chemical process to make it harder or stronger. Most kitchenware and drinkware items made from glass often also undergo a milder form of ‘tempering’ referred to as ‘heat strengthening’ which can make it over twice as resilient as annealing.
Dishwasher Proof Ceramics
Ceramics are made dishwasher safe using a similar process to glass. Ceramic is of course a different material and ceramic mugs and other ceramic kitchenware are also glazed in a furnace which can also strengthen them.
