Multi-Piece Natural Cork Stoppers
The multi-piece natural cork stopper is manufactured with two or more pieces of natural cork, glued together by an FDA - approved food contact glue. They are closures made from strips of thinner cork, which are too thin to produce one-piece natural cork stoppers. They also have greater densimetric characteristics.
Regarding the most common sizes and grades, these are basically the same as the natural one-piece cork closure grades. The multi-piece cork closures are also used in large sized bottles, which require cork closures of a larger size, which are harder to manufacture as one piece natural closures.
The multi-piece cork closure is not for prolonged maturation periods.
