Stopper Sampling Method as per NP 2922 standard - Cork Products.
a. Grade control is based on the reference samples.
b. Surface treatment differs according to the stopper's purpose. The quantity of surface treatment varies depending on stopper diameter.

  • Amorim can calculate the required cork diameter from the design of the neck of your bottle.
  • Order your stoppers for immediate or short term use. These stoppers should be used within 6 months of the date of manufacture.
  • Store in a well-ventilated room with controlled temperature between 15°C and 20°C and 50% to 70% humidity.

  • Ensure insertion of the stopper is performed as quickly as possible.
  • Minimise moisture on the inside of the bottle neck.
  • The ideal bottling conditions are: temperature between 15 and 20 C and humidity between 50-70%. Bottling under different conditions may require out of standard products, to be specified.

  • Ensure the corking machine operates smoothly.
  • Clean all cork handling surfaces regularly with chlorine-free products.
  • Ensure all dust is eliminated using air sprays placed in strategic positions, particularly prior to stopper insertion.

  • After bottling, the bottles should always be kept in an upright position.
  • Ideal bottle storage conditions are: 15-20°C at 50-70% humidity.
