Slimcork® corks are corks made from a single piece of natural cork where the pores have been filled with cork dust and a natural resin to improve the appearance and mechanical properties at an excellent cost.

Our 44 x 24 mm corks Slimcork® corks are #9 and compatible with most traditional 750 ml bottles. When inserted properly with a compatible bottle, the secure seal is recommended for wine maturation up to 10 years.

Why colmated cork?
Colmated cork stoppers are single-piece natural cork stoppers that have had their natural pores, known as lenticels, filled in with cork powder and a mixture of natural resin or water-based glue. Typically colmated closures uses Second or Third quality natural corks and improve the mechanical properties and appearance through this process.

Often the glue used for colmated corks is of higher quality than the one used in agglomerated closures or technical stoppers. The durability of the glue used in colmated corks allows for a longer lifespan and will not lose elasticity as quickly. Because of this, colmated corks are suitable for average to extended periods of maturation.

As colmated corks have a high percentage of natural cork, these closures share many of the same mechanical properties of high quality, single piece natural cork such as excellent sealing and good dimensional return after compression. These cork stoppers are ideal for winemakers seeking a high quality closure at a cost-effective price.
