Standard silicone plugs for barrels
NORTAP® plugs from JIOrings are FDA-approved and compliant to the Regulation (EC) 1935/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 2004/10/27 on materials and articles intended to come into contact with food.
JIOrings silicone plugs, now called Nortap™
JIOrings developed a range of silicone plugs for wooden barrels: Nortap™, plugs from de North.
Since 2004 designing and manufacturing rubber parts, we managed to obtain a smooth quality at a very competitive price. A perfect fit with the different diameters of the most used mouths, a top-quality material and compliance with the FDA standard makes us the ideal distributor of silicone plugs.
One of the advantages of Nortap™ silicone plugs is that they are manufactured in 100% food-grade silicone, which is organoleptically neutral, or which in other words is odorless and tasteless. Moreover, the hardness and shape of the plugs ensures the barrel is perfectly sealed.
These silicone plugs last for years, unlike wooden plugs, which need to be replaced each time a wine is decanted. Moreover, the modern design of these plugs does not clash with the great traditions of the winemaking sector, which anyone who uses them will testify to.
Furthermore, we guarantee almost immediate availability with safe stocks and schedules.
We have provided both the technical data and the migration test sheets for you to take a look at below, in addition to further information should you need it. You may also request a sample with no commitment to enable you to see our silicone plugs first-hand.
