Amcor unveils new Stelvin Inside liners for wine bottles

DBR Staff Writer Published 31 January 2013

Amcor Flexibles Capsules, a part of the Amcor Flexibles Europe & Americas business group that manufactures Stelvin aluminum overcaps and screw caps for drinks industry, has unveiled a range of four new Stelvin Inside liners for wine bottles.


Each of the four liners is lined with different Polyvinylidene chloride (PVDC-Free) films that ensure the oxygen distribution is even in all the bottles.

The new range also offers winemakers more choice of regulating the Oxygen Transmission Rate (OTR) in a wine to make it perfect, claims Amcor.

While the PVDC-Free films are developed by Amcor, the liners are manufactured by Amcor development partner MGJ, a container seal specialist based in France.

Amcor Flexibles Capsules general manager Nicolas Freynet said as many wine makers are switching to Stelvin screw caps, they are happy to provide wine makers with an increased liner OTR choice for their wine bottles.

The four Stelvin Inside liners were showcased for the first time at the Unified Wine & Grape Symposium's Amcor Booth 1610, which was held in Sacramento, California on 30 January 2013.
