Our Crystal Drinkware is made from SAN. SAN is a lightweight but durable material known for its excellent clarity. Unlike similar clear materials, SAN is not prone to yellowing and has high impact and scratch resistance. For best results, ONYX recommends hand washing your Crystal Drinkware and treat as you would glasswear.
- Plastic refers to a class of materials which melts when heated above a particular temperature, and as a result can be remolded and recycled. There are many different types of plastic. Melamine is a "thermoset" material which sets or hardens after being cured at a high temperature. ONYX DESIGNS™ produces merchandise in both of these materials for household use.
- Melamine items are marked as safe for use between -20°C to 120°C and for refrigerator/freezer use. Melamine products are dishwasher safe, however hand washing is recommended for best results.
- We suggest rubbing a small amount of cooking oil into the label to loosen the adhesive to the point where the label can be lifted away and the remaining adhesive wiped off.
