Posted on January 25, 2013

Perfectly fitting, tamper-evident high quality tin capsules are now part of the growing closure product line for the wine industry offered by ACI Cork USA. Relvas Tin closures come in a large range of vibrant colors and can be embossed or flat printed for additional shelf impact. A premier product sourced from Portugal, Relvas Tin capsules are used for ultra-premium and luxury wines in Europe and are now available at competitive pricing to wineries in North America.

Tin capsules are 100 percent recyclable, non-toxic and resistant to corrosion. The soft touch of malleable tin conveys a quality look and feeling to capsules. Detailed decoration can be done on these Relvas one-piece tin capsules. Finished with water-based inks and offered in a wide variety of colors, ACI Cork USA carries the capsules in four stock colors for quick order fulfillment: gold, silver, black and burgundy.
