Lubrication

Prior to installation in a product, no lubricant is applied to the TIZIPs. However, lubrication is essential to maintain the ease of operation and proper coupling of the chain.

After installation into a product, manufacturers are requested to lubricate the TIZIP all along the chain tips, and to operate the slider the full length of the chain, in both directions, at least 5 times. Acid free, grease or oil lubricants may be used.

If the chain is dry, re-lubricating by the user is recommended from time to time.

Please see the instruction card and lubricant tube supplied with each TIZIP Easy and SuperSeal. Lubricating the outer flanges of the sealing profile reduces the sliding force greatly.

Storage and transportation

For storage, long- and short term and during transportation we recommend to leave the zipper chain closed. The closed chain protects the sealing lips and makes them more resistant to bending.

After long term storage and prior to using please open The chain completely, relubricate the chain tips and operate the slider a few times over the full length.
