YKK Plastic Zips
The YKK plastic zip is a very popular type of fastener, which is used for clothing, bags, gear, etc. The teeth are made of plastic and resemble a tractor track. The advantage is that if one or several teeth are damaged, the zip will still work because the teeth are attached to the tape individually. The vislon zipper is strong and light, which helps to reduce the weight of the product. The greatest advantage of the vislon zip is its durability and resistance. Even with increased use, the zip teeth are not damaged, they do not bend, and they are also quite resistant to chemicals.
