Generally, at zipper factory, zippers can be divided into three categories according to the material, which are metal zippers, plastic zippers, and nylon zippers. Now let us take a look them separately.  

Metal zipper

Seen from the name, we can know that metal zippers are easy to differentiate with other two kinds due to its metal material such as brass, antique brass, nickel, antique nickel, gun metal, copper and aluminum etc. Usually the metal zipper teeth are discharged through the threading machine with copper or aluminum wire. It is widely used on many fields such as handbag, clothing and coveralls etc., especially various Jeans due to its firm and durable, and it can withstand the brutal washes. Of course, there are luxury metal zippers as well, which have a high polish and high sine on the surface. The special finish process makes it smooth and beautiful. Nowadays, it is often used on expensive items, such as coats, bags and on, since it looks more exquisite. It is also an icon of fashion.

Nylon zipper

Nylon coil zipper is made just as its name. The nylon zipper teeth are made of nylon monofilament through heating and pressing composed of die winding centerline. Compared with metal zippers and plastic zippers, nylon zippers have the characteristics of low cost, large output and high penetration rate, since the material of nylon zipper is mainly polyester, which is relatively cheap. So, it is also a kind of zipper that people would like to choose on market. The commonly used sliders are painted, and sometimes electroplated. Nylon zippers can be used in various occasions, but generally it is widely used on sportswear, shoes, bedding, bags, backpacks, suit cases, and camping apparel such as tents etc. On market, you can easily find this kind of zippers.

And even its nylon monofilament can be automatically fixed by opening and closing itself past the point where the tooth is misaligned. In addition, the sliders can be put on either direction of the zipper chain and are still function.

Plastic zipper

Its material is plastic, which also has low cost. The plastic zipper teeth are made of polyester plastic rice through dye color matching and discharged through the injection molding machine.
