Coats expands Opti zips range

World leading industrial thread and consumer textile crafts business Coats plc introduces a new product to the Coats Opti zips range – Coats Opti Total Plastic (TP) zips. 

Environmental conditions such as humidity, salt water, wind and sun light can have a detrimental effect on metal sliders, causing them to corrode and the zips used in outdoor goods to malfunction.

Coats Opti TP zips provide a solution to the problem of deterioration as they are made with plastic sliders, making them durable and corrosion resistant, ensuring a high puller strength when put under pressure.

The range provides the best solution for outdoor technical applications such as marine equipment and outdoor gear, including boat covers, life vests and jackets, buoyancy aids, diving vests, military goods, tents and awnings.

Coats Opti TP zips also include enhanced features, such as Coats Hydro S treatment – an exclusive specially developed water repellent chemical which is applied to zips to avoid water passing through the tape, stopping the fabric from rotting.  Other features include resistance to sunlight, UV radiation and colour fade. 

Wider textile tapes also ensure there is sufficient room for the specialist stitching needed to securely fasten the zips to the stiff and heavy fabrics used in outdoor and marine goods.

Frazer Smith, Chief Commercial Officer, Coats plc, said: ‘Coats Opti TP zips demonstrate our continued commitment to developing products that are tailored to our customers’ varied and diverse needs as we strive to meet the most important requirements for zips used in outdoor goods. 

'Total plastic zips provide a practical solution to the problem of corrosion caused by the elements and is yet another example of Coats’ varied portfolio of apparel, footwear and specialty thread, yarn and zip innovations.’
