There are many options for molded tooth zippers. Here are a few offered by YKK:

VISLON® zipper

YKK’s VISLON® zipper is made of injected plastic elements, such as polyacetal resin. It is lighter than metal zippers of the same size. Rich element color variations are created by formulating the color pigment during the injection process.

VISLON® AQUAGUARD®

YKK’s AquaGuard® water repellent zipper type series is a polyurethane laminated tape on a VISLON® zipper. The new element design provides enhanced water resistance while increasing the number of design and color options for your application. Starting in October 2022, YKK will spend about one year gradually replacing the conventional water repellent AquaGuard® zipper with the environmentally friendly AquaGuard® NATULON® zipper, which has a tape made of recycled PET plastic and a fluorine-free water repellent.
