SPARKLING
WINE

MASilva stoppers are used for some of the world's best sparkling wines. Sparkling wine presents challenges in terms of stoppers, which have to be able to withstand high pressures while maintaining consistency and the specified insertion and extraction forces.

DESCRIPTION
MASilva cork closures are used for some of the world's best sparkling wines. Sparkling wine presents challenges in terms of stoppers, which have to be able to withstand higher pressures while maintaining consistency and the specified insertion and extraction forces. Their visual appearance is critical, given the aesthetic emphasis placed on sparkling wine packaging. The product must be strong enough to remain intact during twisting extraction, while being pliable enough to offer a lasting seal. Our sparkling wine cork is composed of a SARA® sterilized agglomerated cork body, and two discs of solid natural cork on the end that comes into contact with the sparkling wine. We use only FDA-approved food-grade bonding agents. The composite body consistently meets stringent visual and mechanical requirements, both at individual part level and after gluing to the disks.

DURABILITY
Stoppers for sparkling wine are made to effectively seal bottles so that sparkling wines can age for several years.
