User Manual

  1. Due to the variations in strength values, chemical reactions, and appearance of zippers based on their types, it is important to provide the authorized personnel of the zipper company with information about the intended usage location before placing an order.
  2. The zipper on the product should be washed after it is fully closed.
  3. Washed zipper products should be dried quickly and should not be left wet. If the zipper on a wet product has been dried, it should be opened and closed.
  4. During the washing of zipper products, auxiliary chemical substances should be used in appropriate proportions, and the processing time should not exceed 30 minutes.
  5. It is essential to remember to wash products with zippers turned inside out as much as possible.
  6. In pumice stone washes, the final rinse of the zipper product should be done thoroughly, and it should be dried immediately.
  7. It should not be overlooked that storing zippers and zipper products in unsuitable environments can cause issues with tapes and teeth. They should not be subjected to excessive humidity and high temperatures, and should not be placed under heavy weights that could compromise their appearance and damage the metal components.
  8. After the zipper is sewn, if the product is steam-pressed or treated with chemicals, it should be cooled down and placed in polyethylene bags without delay. Prolonged storage in these bags without cooling down can lead to chemical reactions.
  9. The pressure and temperature applied while pressing or ironing the zipper product should be adjusted carefully. Improper ironing can deform the zipper structure.
  10. It should be noted that dark-colored zippers sewn onto light-colored garments may cause color transfer issues.
  11. No processes other than washing should be applied to zippers with coatings (oxide, tin, antique brass, etc.). It should be kept in mind that non-standard industrial processes can cause the coating to color the fabrics and its own tape.
  12. Each zipper should be sewn using a specific zipper sewing foot corresponding to its type.
  13. During zipper sewing, care should be taken to prevent the entry of foreign objects such as threads, lint, and fabric between the zipper teeth. Especially in the production of bags, shoes, and boots, the use of adhesive materials or solutions during sewing can render the zipper teeth and slider unable to perform their function.
  14. Avoid striking the nylon zipper teeth, especially during their sewing.
  15. In baby and children's products, where needle breakage is checked, sliders of zippers should be manufactured using the non-magnetic method to pass through detectors without triggering an alarm.
  16. During zipper sewing, the path for the slider's smooth movement should be left open.
  17. Longitudinal cutting should not be made on the strips before sewing zippers. If done so, the warp threads of the strip will disperse, rendering the zipper unusable.
  18. To maximize corrosion resistance, it is recommended to prefer lacquered components.
  19. In separable zipper types, two side strips of different zippers should not be paired together, even if they have the same color and length. This can result in cosmetic flaws such as buckling.
  20. If spray-painted handles are used as accessories on zippers, there may be deformation on the swinging handle due to movement and impact during washing. To prevent this, the handles should be fixed or worn after washing.
  21. Due to the structure of zippers, which consist of metal, monofilament, plastic, accessories, and coatings, it is recommended by FIM ZIPPER to adhere to the rules of washing, protection, and appropriate usage area for their healthy functioning and long-term use to the maximum extent possible.
