Coats Plc has extended its range of speciality thread, yarn and zip products with the addition of new brilliant gloss metal zips.

The Coats Opti M Ultra zips are produced using a proprietary process on the metal in place of the standard wire brushing used on conventional metal zips. This treatment means the metal components are deburred and abraded, including in areas that are not easily accessed by mechanical processes - giving a uniformly shiny zip with smooth opening and closing.

The products can be used across the luggage, apparel and footwear sectors, and are available in ultra gold, ultra light gold, ultra silver, ultra gun metal and ultra black finishes.
