Registered trademark for a screw cap of the French company ALCAN Packaging Capsules, the closures of all kinds. STELVIN is an artificial word from STELCAP (registered trademark for screw caps) and VIN. It is a special aluminum cap for wine bottles. A further development is Stelvin lux +, which has no corrugation on the outside and of a conventional one cork is indistinguishable.
