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||
|Food Processing & Industrial||Plastic||Best Protection||
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.
