Lexington, MA (PRWEB) April 25, 2013
The Grommet, an online shopping site and product launch platform for innovative and undiscovered products, is working with drinkware company, BarLuxe to feature line of unbreakable drinkware. The Grommet sees this line of drinkware as a major innovation within the space and is proud to feature it on the site.
BarLuxe got its start when some friends started brainstorming about how to create unbreakable drinkware. It took many tests and the emergence of a new compound -- Eastman Tritan copolyester -- before BarLuxe’s nearly indestructible glasses were ready for action. They have the aesthetics of real glass and unparalleled durability. In testing, BarLuxe even drove a car over one of its glasses, which survived the impact without breaking. Eastman also rigorously tested the BPA-free Tritan compound against the biggest enemy of conventional polycarbonate and acrylic drinkware: the dishwasher. After hundreds of cycles in commercial and consumer dishwashers, BarLuxe’s barware emerged without a hint of cloudiness, streaks or cracks.
BarLuxe’s drinkware is ideal for outdoor use, so no one has to worry about shattered glass. But it’s not limited to outdoors. It’s right at home in a dining room, too and doesn't have the feel or look of plastic. That was a key priority for Jason O'Brien, a plastics industry veteran and BarLuxe cofounder. No one wants durability at the expense of style, and BarLuxe doesn’t sacrifice either.
