This system uses not only ozone, but also the most powerful peroxone, a combination of ozone and hydrogen peroxide, to disinfect and clean cork stoppers. The solution eliminates microorganisms and spores, and oxidizes organic impurities and compounds, such as phenols and anisols, which can be precursors of compounds with unwanted aromas. The Maszone® system also improves the visual appearance of the cork stopper.
“Embrace nature and put the state-of-art technology available to the production process is the leitmotif of MASILVA’s values and management policy.” At #MASILVA we are constantly pushing our principles and sustainable practices further, with constant focus on environment preservation through innovation and cooperation between entities throughout the globe.

The Technical Stoppers silktop advanced ®, usually designated as 1 + 1, consists of a body of microaglomerado composed of Cork Granules, with a disc also of natural cork in each of the tops. This product presents a visible face of natural cork both for wine and for the consumer, maintaining properties similar to natural corks.
At present, the main goals of the MASILVA Group are to consolidate its position in mature markets and reach new developing markets, driven by the added value of natural cork. The unique characteristics of the cork become more and more distinguished in the world, thanks to the growing preference for environmentally sustainable products.
All raw material is subjected to intense steam and pressure and is also submerged in clean water through our Dynavox® system in order to remove unwanted compounds from the deep interior of the cork matrix. This eliminates micro-organisms without using chemicals.
