Tekni-Plex Launches Tri-Vin Liners for Wine Closures

Wayne, PA | Tekni-Plex Inc. has engineered a new laminated aluminum foil/foam barrier liner, available globally, to deliver performance, cost, and environmental attributes for roll-on pilfer proof (ROPP) wine closures.

Tri-Vin liners from Tri-Seal, a div. of Tekni-Plex Inc., deliver performance attributes that support wine aging and drinkability. The aluminum foil/foam lamination has been engineered to replace tin/Saran barrier liners commonly used for ROPP wine applications. Permeation tests have been conducted by an independent laboratory comparing alternate materials currently in use. In addition, sensory organoleptic testing has been carried out by the Australian Wine Research Inst.

“We invested significant resources to develop a cost-effective wine liner with the performance characteristics of tin/Saran liners, while preserving aroma and taste,” explained David Andrulonis, VP and general manager, Tekni-Plex. “We designed the Tri-Vin liner to perform in the correct oxygen sensitivity range, allowing wine makers to cost-effectively maintain the drinkability window for consumers. Additionally, the structure is halogen and chlorine free, which is environmentally desirable.”
