Subject: Reliability data for zip fastener
I'm trying to find some reliability data for a zip fastener (a zipper). Unfortunately, nothing is included in the NPRD 95. I will really appreciate if someone can give me some data or a means to estimate MTBF for this kind of applications Many thanks

I searched the RAC databases and found no data for zip fasteners (zippers). I recommend you try contacting YKK directly for any reliability information they may have. Their website is "".
