Zipper Facts:
There are 2 basic types of zipper: toothed & coil.
Size numbers go up by size of tooth or coil: #3 is 3mm across, #5 is 5mm across.
Strength some-what relates to size or #3 is not as strong as #5. But coil is ALWAYS stronger than toothed in the same size. Why? Think about the area that is engaged between the 2 sides of the zipper. Then think about material of the tooth.
Sport zippers are plastic teeth that warp with use & heat. Known as Vislon. Usually #5 size.
Metal zippers are no longer made with brass but some combination of base metals.....who knows if they will hold up! Jean zips are #5. Come as #5, #7, #8, #9, #12 (Carharts overalls)
My zippers are nylon coil with polyester tape. Sizes available: #3, #5, #10
The test for strength is pulling 1" of tape apart & figuring out how much pressure that 1" will take before the coil pops. So #3 coil pops at 150 psi or pounds per square inch. #5 pops at around 200 psi. #10 at 178psi.
Then there are INVISIBLE ZIPPERS. They are coil zippers but the coils are rolled to the back so that you can't see the bump. I stock INVISIBLE ZIPPERS as cut, closed bottom zippers in 10", 20", 26", 30", 36" & 100" or as yardage. Available in #2, #4 & #7.
For all of you making wedding dresses, I am working on invisible zippers on knitted tape in the size #7 (the 50 lbs. of potatoes in a 5 lb. bag thing). PS- #7 invisibles are used to zip the seat covers on Hummers.....just don't tell the bride!
