YKK Zipper Story Element
In the anime, Yoji and Kei put fantastical zippers to myriad uses. Their nifty tools stretch, shrink and emit light,
performing an astounding array of functions, but some of them are in fact true-to-life features of YKK zippers.
Here we present the original technology and products upon which the zippers in the anime are based.
Sturdy, watertight zippers
PROSEAL® is the ultimate water and airtight fastening solution. PROSEAL® technology is based on a strong seal with nickel silver elements pushed tightly together. This offers critical protection against infiltration by many liquids and gases at substantial pressure levels. From the deep sea to outer space, PROSEAL® technology has enabled people to explore new frontiers.
a fashionable zipper in shining rainbow colors
AUROLITE® is a brand new type of coil zipper that has an iridescent color effect.
Depending on the membrane and element color, it gives a different impression and can suit garments in a variety of categories, such as sports or casual.
a solid yet lightweight zipper
METALUXE® is a VISLON® zipper with a metallic look.
Shiny and slim elements bring a luxury look just like metal zippers, but since plastic materials are used, it's much lighter.
