|Wholesale Brass Zippers|
(will be back in stock by the end of July 2013)
According to Wikipedia,
"Metallic zippers are the classic zipper type, found mostly in jeans today. The teeth are not a coil, but are individual pieces of metal moulded into shape and set on the zipper tape at regular intervals. Metal zippers are made in brass, aluminum and nickel, according to the metal used for teeth making. All these zippers are basically made from flat wire. A special type of metal zipper is made from pre-formed wire, usually brass but sometimes other metals too. Only a few companies in the world have the technology. This type of pre-formed metal zippers is mainly used in high grade jeanswear, workwear, etc., where high strength is required and zippers need to withstand tough washing".At our zipper store, we are now selling 7 and 9 inch zipper assortments. Update June 28th, 2013: YKK brass zippers are temporarily out of stock. 9 inch brass zipper assortments will be back in stock by the end of July 2013.
