No mechanical intervention
The NEOTECH® process uses controlled steam and pressure to expel the TCA and other volatile compounds from the cork granules. We use this process to ensure high quality in Silktop® products and sparkling wine stoppers, as well as NEO® micro-agglomerate stoppers.
TCA IS REDUCED – each cork granule is treated with steam, to make TCA and other phenols volatile.
CONTINUOUS PROCESS SYSTEM – the granules are moved from the steam area directly to the drying area, eliminating the risk of cross contamination of microorganisms.
AUTOMATIC PROCESS – continuous feed of granules from the NEOTECH® allows for high volumes of production.
All granules come from carefully selected raw materials at the raw material center, located in the heart of Alentejo.
