A coil zipper, also known as nylon coil zipper, is a zipper whose teeth are made of coiled monofilament and formed into a zipper by sewing on the zipper tape. It is made of spiral plastic elements such as polyester or nylon. This zipper can be used in anything from apparel, luggage, sports gear, and even furniture.
The teeth of the nylon coil zipper are formed by a continuous nylon coil sewn to a textile size tape. It is both strong and malleable. Its strength is derived from the tightly packed elements of the continuous coil, as well as its unique ability to "self-heal." If a piece of fabric gets caught in the zipper and bends the teeth, pulling the slider open and closed repeatedly will cause the teeth to realign. It also allows for easier sewing and smoother operation within curved arcs. All of these characteristics make coil zippers an excellent choice for heavy products like backpacks, handbags, and luggage.
