Expancel Microspheres is an excellent additive in micro-agglomerated and synthetic wine corks

It gives you impeccable foaming control plus it's highly compressible with anti-shrink properties that are perfectly suited to keep wines preserved in bottles for years on end. 
 
Expancel is highly compressible and has an outstanding capacity to return to shape. Wine corks made with our microspheres are easy to insert and mold themselves to form the perfect seal. They enable micro-agglomerated cork with the ideal granule structure and resilience. 
 
When it comes to synthetic wine corks, it's all in the foaming. Expancel Microspheres have a fine, closed and uniform structure that promises highly controlled foaming for consistent results. This means that you can use Expancel alone or in combination with your chemical blowing agent to achieve a cork with outstanding airtight properties.
