What considerations you need to take before purchasing zippers

Zipper is an auxiliary material with certain powerful performance. It must be used properly, so that it can prolong its service life, otherwise it will be easily damaged. There are three main zipper materials, namely nylon zipper, resin zipper and metal zipper. Zippers are commonly found in clothing, bags and jeans. When you want to order zippers, there are several factors to consider.

Zipper Type

What are the types and classifications of zippers? Where is the purpose of the zipper? Are you looking for nylon coil zippers, metal separating zippers or plastic molded zippers? Each type of zipper can meet the functional requirements of different products. The type of zipper will inform you of its measurement specifications.

Zipper Style

The zipper style refers to the actual use of the zipper. For example, the metal split bottom zipper is suitable for jackets. Closed bottom zipper will be very suitable for denim. The two-way split bottom zipper perfectly matches a long trench coat that requires two zippers.

Basic zipper styles include closed bottom zipper, split bottom zipper, two-way split bottom zipper, and two-way closed bottom zipper.

Zipper Size

The specification size refers to the size of the tooth. The size of the zipper is divided into 3#, 4#, 5#, 7#, 8#, etc. The size of the zipper changes according to the size of the microphone teeth. Different sizes of microphone teeth can meet the functional and aesthetic needs of different products. Metal zippers for jackets should consider its zipper finish. Nylon coil or plastic molded zipper should jump to the length of the zipper.

Zipper Finish

The metal zippers on the market are mostly made of aluminum alloy, brass, cupronickel, zinc alloy and other materials. The zipper finish is suitable for metal zippers. Zipper finishes are mostly for aesthetic purposes, such as antique brass zipper, antique silver zipper and white metal zipper. However, in some cases, the type of zipper facing should be considered based on the type of processing that the garment will go through. The colors of the metal sliders are green bronze, red bronze, white-plated, yellow-plated, black nickel, black and white nickel, matt silver, etc. A specific finish or appearance can be achieved with chemical cleaning agents. Make sure that the zipper finish is still effective after the zipper is washed.

Zipper Length

Measure the length of the zipper excluding the tape extender. You only need to measure the length of the zipper from top to bottom. The meaning of zipper length is different in different zipper forms. Since the zipper is a flexible fabric, it will have a certain degree of expansion and contraction under the action of external force. This must be taken into consideration when purchasing a zipper to determine the size.

Zipper Color

When choosing zippers for clothing, we should not only pay attention to the difference between the color of the zipper tape and the fabric, that is, the color difference, but also pay attention to the color fastness of the zipper tape. For manufacturers, whether the color fastness of the zipper reaches the standard grade, and whether the color shift between the zipper and the clothing will directly affect the quality of the final product.

The color fastness mainly includes the washing resistance and friction resistance of the product. Generally, it refers to the degree of fading of the dyed fabric under the action of external factors (extrusion, friction, soaping, rain, exposure, etc.) during use or processing.
