William Congreve, a British dramatist, has said that music has charms to soothe a savage breast, to soften rocks or bend a knotted oak. Regularly, earphones are used to listen to music clearly as well as avoid disturbing others. But one of the worst things that can derail your day is tangled earphone lines.

Airtight zippers are zippers that have been specially designed and treated to resist damage from dust, chemical fumes, gases and above average atmospheric pressure. Usually made out of vulcanized chloroprene rubber, airtight zippers find use in a wide variety of industrial and chemical applications (e.g. decompression clothing, space suits, immersion suits, marine sportswear, etcetera). Due to the nature of their construction, airtight zippers should be handled and treated differently from normal zippers. Here are a few tips on how they can be properly fixed and cleaned.
In situations where protection from water, chemical fumes, and other substances is the priority, airtight zippers are a must. These zippers are specifically designed and manufactured to act as a protective barrier against most liquids and gases. As such, they are commonly used in marine sportswear (survival and life suits, wet or dry diving suits), inflatable objects (water beds, water-walking balls), camping gear (tents, backpacks), protection suits (decompression clothing, immersion suits, firefighters’ suits) and other types of functional clothing. Due to their special nature, airtight zippers are treated and stored differently from regular zippers.

The fact that we will need to maintain the air/water tightness will require a more careful and technical installation process. In this guide, we will discuss the different installation methods for air and water tight zippers. The installation method may differ, depending on the tape material of which the zipper is going to be installed. So, let us first discuss the common tape materials used for air and water tight zippers.
