Quality zipper, cheap price point.

I will admit that I mistakenly ordered this product. I have plastic zipper chain and plastic zippers for 12 of my 13 sailboat cushions. I had to order a single zipper to finish my project and I ordered the metal version instead of the plastic version. I prefer the plastic version since it matches the zipper material. I do want to note that this metal #5 zipper is perfectly compatible with the Vislon #5 zipper chain. The paint on the metal is durable. I am not sure what type of metal the zipper but I am hoping it is some grade of stainless steel to help prevent corrosion. My old cushions had metal zippers and metal zipper chain. After 25yrs the zipper was completely fused/seized to the chain and would not move at all. The only way to undo the cushions was to tear the fabric apart. For that reason I do not recommend the metal products. Regardless, I did use the metal zipper on my last cushion. Time will tell how it withstands the elements,
