YKK® AquaGuard® Water Repellent Zipper #10 Continuous Black is a practically waterproof zipper with great strength and smooth operation. The polyurethane coating (shiny outer surface) increases water repellency but reduces the flexibility of this coil zipper. Because of this, AquaGuard zippers are not recommended for projects with curves. AquaGuard zippers are perfect for outdoor applications requiring moisture protection or an airtight seal.
Continuous zippers require at least one end to be sewn shut and do not include a starter box or pin, top stops, or zipper sliders. Sliders and top stops are sold separately. AquaGuard zippers are compatible with single reverse tab coil sliders or regular #10 double pull sliders.
