Coil or Plastic Zippers

YKK El Salvador has an assembly plant for making zippers to supply all Central American countries. We import from other YKK companies the raw material for these items: wire for chain and sliders, tape, and top and bottom stops for zippers.

YKK manufactures three different kinds of zippers, which are assembled in El Salvador: metal zippers, plastic zippers, and VISLON® zippers. YKK® zippers can be made of plastic coil (plastic zipper), POM resin (VISLON®), or with metal teeth (brass, antique brass, or aluminum). Our natural cotton or polyester tape can be dyed in different colors.

Our products have certifications such as OEKO-TEX®, ISO 9001:2008, and ISO 14001:2004 to ensure the quality of our products and services.

Coil or Plastic Zippers

This zipper’s elements are made from a monofilament material and are available in the following sizes: 3CF, 45CF, 5CF, *8RC and *10RC.

**We import 8RC and 10RC from other YKK companies.

Plastic zippers are traditionally used in ladies apparel, such as dresses, skirts, blouses and some special clothing that needs concealed zippers (invisible zippers where you cannot see the elements); other applications include men’s pants, uniforms, trousers, and jacket pockets.
