Amcor's STELVIN® Inside Wins WorldStar 2016 Award
Amcor is proud to have received a WorldStar 2016 award for STELVIN® Inside, a new range of aluminium wine closures and liners that can double wine makers’ Oxygen Transmission Rate (OTR) choices.
Each of the four liners has a different OTR target which, through technical developments in combination with other materials that make up the liner, ensures a controlled level of oxygen dispersion, so allowing wine makers and consumers consistency from one bottle to the next.
Liners are highly complex and play a pivotal role in aluminium closures for wine. They guarantee absence of cork taint, ensure consistency from one bottle to another and secure the preservation of aromas, flavours and freshness as well as controlled OTR, which is critical to the wine ageing process. All the films used in the liners are produced by Amcor and are PVDC-free.
Nicolas Freynet, General Manager of Amcor Flexibles Capsules commented, “Amcor Flexibles Capsules is delighted that STELVIN® Inside has been recognized by the WorldStar 2016 jury. It demonstrates our ability, as the pioneer of STELVIN® aluminium closures, to continue to develop breakthrough innovations which offer new benefits for winemakers and consumers alike.”
In addition to winning its own award for STELVIN® Inside, Amcor was involved in the development of Lipton’s ultra-lightweight hot-fill package, which was also recognized by the WorldStar judges. Amcor Flexibles won two further awards for groundbreaking pharmaceutical and medical packaging concepts.
