The story of Zip-Slip

Protect and repair zips on outdoor clothing and equipment which endure extreme conditions. Use Zip-Slip, a liquid lubricant with in built brush applicator. Zip-Slip will help you avoid the hassle of replacing stuck zips, and stop you from having to replace items with broken zips.

Traditionally, zips have been maintained and lubricated with beeswax sticks. Whilst we can supply beeswax sticks, Zip-Slip has been designed for easy zip repair work, with the advantage of being easy to apply to all component parts of a zip. 

Zip slip was developed at the request of a customer who experimented with using the furniture polish as a zip repair lubricant but found the turpentine damaged the rubber of his wet suit. So to satisfy the needs of customers maintaining a broad range of zips on an equally large range of fabrics, Zip-Slip uses paraffin wax and white spirit as its two main ingredients. 

How it's made

Ingredients are white spirit and paraffin wax. Paraffin wax is dissolved in a tank of white spirit and bottled hot.
