    There is no appositive modifier in your example. Compare "We went to see the opera Carmen", where the noun "Carmen" is an appositive modifier of the noun "opera". – BillJ Sep 2 '18 at 15:11
  • It is likely that 'cork and wire' was meant to stand in apposition with 'tight seal' -- It would have been better with a comma after 'seal'. – AmI May 2 at 2:48
