OUR STORY, ZIPPED

We were born among zippers. We have been producing this incredible and fascinating

product since the thirties of the past century. Quite a long time isn’t it? 

 We used to produce all kinds of zips, such as coil, metal and injected ones. 

 

But in recent years we took a foolish decision:

JUST NYGUARD and NY2LIFE zippers!

 

Many friends told us we were crazy. And they were right. We are absolutely mad for our special zippers!

About
PRODUCTION

We take care of all the production steps: tape weaving, sliders die-casting, extrusion and final assembly of the elements.

Our peculiar production process was engineered internally to suit our quality and creative needs. All our specific machinery has been

designed and created by us.

 

This is why Nyguard zipper is unique and inimitable.

 

Our systems are also extremely flexible. That enables us to respond quickly and positively to any customer's desire.

Every day we put all our energies in trying to innovate our technologies and in accepting new design challenges.

Every Nyguard zipper is unique.

Our collections are just for inspiration. Look through them and contact us, we love to cooperate with fashion designers in creating not just a fastener but a customized, original, outstanding detail, impossible to counterfeit.

THE PRODUCT

NYGUARD

Developed in order to match specific military application needs, NYGUARD immediately stood out for its ability to cope with extreme situations.

It looks ultimately diverse, thanks to its peculiar production processes and its specific components.

Made of a special resin, with an exclusive process of extrusion of the elements, our zippers guarantee maximum resistance together with flexibility, lightweight and comfort.

READY TO DYE

Nyguard has a very high resistance to basic or acid dye processes, also at high temperatures. This makes it possible to dye the tape and the chain together with the garment.

 

 

RESISTANCE

The chain, built in a very flexible material, is connected to the tape by double stitching, protected in the groove of the teeth. Thanks to this particularity we can obtain at the same time extra-strength, elasticity and resilience giving perfect performance under sudden changes of temperatures, shocks and rubbing.

 

 

CONTRASTS

It is possible to obtain infinite chromatic combinations varying and contrasting the color of the tapes, of the teeth and of the stitching threads.

 

 

TECHNICAL APPLICATIONS

Available also in fire retardant and UV resistant version, able to withstand extreme outdoor conditions.

STONE WASH TREATMENTS

More resistant than metal, the color of the chain remains unchanged after treatments. Moreover, there is no risk of chain imprinting or damaging of fabrics.

 

 

SMOOTHNESS

The shape of the teeth confers a soft sliding and a smooth touch, ideal for use in children's clothing. Many codes of practice for the design and manufacture of children’s clothing recommend the use of zips with plastic elements in boys’ trousers. Nyguard is the only available solution for kids trousers that can pass through stone wash or garment dye processes.

 

 

COMFORT

The chain is very thin and therefore very light and flexible on both sides. This characteristic enables it to follow the line of the fabric without causing waves on it. The flat surface minimizes marking when ironed.

 

INTERCHANGEABILITY

Thanks to the specific production process of NYGUARD we can check  the exact number of teeth on each zipper. For this reason we can always guarantee the interchangeability between halves coming from different zippers in multiple production batches. This characteristic is very useful in all applications where it is necessary to manage separate components independently.

CREATIVE DESIGN

Every Nyguard zipper is unique.

Our collections are just for inspiration. Look through them and contact us, we love to cooperate with fashion designers in creating not just a fastener but a customized, original, outstanding detail, impossible to counterfeit.

NYGUARD is intriguing because it is divergent and eclectic.

It can really make the difference on your finished product.
