What is the difference between the coil or visloc zipper?
Monica s Coil Zippers use the toothed elements of helical coils of polyester, nylon or in some cases metal wire as the fastening system. The opposing elements of the exposed coil interlock with each other to form the closure. It has a very low profile finish.
Vislon compounds have a larger bulk than coil zippers. These zippers have teeth of individually coupling members that interlock and are injection molded onto a pre-woven dyed tape. They have a degree of self lubrication and tend to be somewhat sturdier than an equivalent size of coil zipper. They also handle water and impurities better than coil zippers and in the larger sizes are the ideal choice for outdoor topping applications such as boats and other marine fitting applications.
