YKK® Zipper #10 VISLON® is a UV treated, Delrin® zipper. VISLON zippers are made with Delrin plastic teeth molded to the fabric tape edges. This construction makes them strong and practically weatherproof, having been designed to resist damage from ultraviolet rays and corrosion. YKK VISLON Zippers are great for a marine environment. Use a #10 VISLON zipper in sail covers, canvas enclosures, jib luff sleeves, jackets and much more.
Finished zippers can be separated, like the zipper on a jacket, and include a zipper slider, starter box and top stops. A finished zipper can easily be shortened by cutting the end that is closed last. Install new top stops or sew fabric pieces over the ends of the teeth to keep the slider from coming off the end.

Vislon & Coil Zippers - Part 1
Most zippers come in two distinct styles called vislon or coil. This video will discuss the differences of a vislon and coil zipper. Vislon zippers are the most common marine zippers. They are strong and designed to resist UV and corrosive damage. Coil zipper chain is strong and flexible due to a fine toothed design. Great for bags, tents, packs and rounding corner applications, but not as good for UV resistance.
