Coats is launching Opti Lux Shield, the most advanced range of corrosion resistant zips at Lineapelle, the international trade fair for the leather goods sector to be held in Milan in pad 22, stand F17.

“Metal zips are prone to oxidisation and corrosion from exposure to the moisture in air and also through contact with chemicals contained in leather following the tanning process it goes through,” Coats stated.

“This not only detracts from the product's appearance but can also impede the smooth running of the zip, often to the point of jamming,” the company said in a press release.

Coats research and development team has developed a unique and advanced formula which makes the zip's teeth and slider resistant to corrosion caused by atmospheric exposure and leather tanning chemicals.

The propriety shield finish protects the electroplated surface from chemicals and minimises the damage caused by regular abrasion.

“Specially engineered chemical and mechanical properties also enhance the appearance and durability of the zips,” Coats informed in a press release.

“This is combined with a superior process for forming the mechanical teeth of the zip which enhances the run ability by lowering friction,” it explained.

Rajiv Sharma, Global CEO, Industrial, Coats said, “The unique chemical and mechanical process we have specially developed means we are able to help our customers improve the durability of their products.”

“We have developed an enhancement to one of our products that makes a direct and visible difference to the end product sold to the consumer,” Sharma to added.

The range is available in a choice of shiny and matt appearance, all tape colours and three sizes and is ideal for use in leather garments and accessories as well as stone washed and post dyed garments. (AR)
