    LED Tubes: Which is Best, Glass or Plastic?

    Many manufacturers offer both glass and plastic tube construction for LED replacement lamps.

    So which is best, glass or plastic?

    The answer depends on the application.

    Here’s a brief guide.

    Application LED Tube Material Damage Protection Comments
    Office & General Lighting Glass Minimal Protection Least expensive for large scale retrofits
    Grocery & General Retail Glass PET Coated Shatter Protection

    NSF Rated

    Mid-range expense

    Food Processing & Industrial Plastic Best Protection

    NSF Rated

    Most expensive

    Lamp material is only one of the attributes that will determine which LED you purchase. But, for some applications where NSF Rated lamps are required, manufacturers have met that need with plastic or PET coated glass.
