Natural wine corks are preferred for all types of wine, aging periods and bottle formats. Our innovative sterilization processes support the integrity and neutrality of our cork.
Our Silktop Technical corks provide the appearance of natural cork, and undergo the SARA process for further enhanced integrity and neutrality. Steam and pressure-treated agglomerated cork granules with a high quality natural cork disk at each end. Only FDA food-grade bonding agents are used on our technical and agglomerated corks.
Pearl Micro-agglomerated corks are produced from steam and pressure treated, uniformly-sized micro-granules. Same feel of real cork and meets the same quality standards as our natural and technical wine corks. Pearl Prestige begins the same as the Pearl corks, but with an additional steam cleaning process that further reduces TCA levels to below 0.5 ng/L. Only FDA food-grade bonding agents are used.
Bring a luxury look to your beer bottles with M. A. Silva’s beer cork. Composed of sterilized agglomerated cork and two natural cork disks, this cork is bounded by FDA approved bonding agent.
