Micro Agglomerated Wine Corks

Choose your Dimension

Micro agglomerated cork stoppers are manufactured from natural cork granules in accordance of the standards of the International Code of Cork Stopper Manufacturing Practices (ICCSMP).

The micro agglomerated cork stopper joins the unique characteristics of the cork material with a very rigorous manufacturing process allowing achieve great levels of mechanical, sensorial and microbiological properties.

The cork granules size and density had been perfected to achieve a perfect balance of elasticity, homogeneity and sealing capacity. The small particles of cork granulates pass through a depth cleaning process to fully guarantee the absence of any substance that can change the taste.

The micro agglomerated cork stopper characteristics provide an excellent sealing solution for fast consumption wines and other beverages (6 to 18 months) presenting great performance levels.
