Production and supply systems have been integrated to meet all of the needs of our customers worldwide. Now the world’s textile and sewing industries are seeing even greater diversification in consumer needs as well as shorter product cycles. YKK is responding by working even harder to speed up product development and reduce production costs.
YKK manufactures and markets a wide range of zippers, with a primary focus on three types: metal, coil, and VISLON®. The metal zipper has the longest history and is suited for various applications such as jackets, luggage, jeans and others. A coil zipper is made of spiral plastic elements. This is the softest zipper among the three types of zippers. The VISLON® zipper is made of injection molded plastic elements. Rich element color variations are created by formulating the color pigment during the injection process.
