Reply to "Rubber corks"

Ron,

Thanks for the informative link.
I was just today reading marketing material put out by a synthetic cork supplier that purported to give all the reasons for failure of the seal.

One factor that was never mentioned was the elongation of the stopper in response to compression. That explains why most synthetic stoppers eventually allow more oxygen transmission, no matter how close the tolerance is kept in the initial fit.
