Metal zippers are the traditional zippers developed over a hundred years ago and are still popular for use. The teeth are metal clasps that are clamped onto the zipper tape at regular intervals. Different metal finishes are used for different effects with brass (gold), antique brass, and nickel being the most popular. The gauge identifies the size of the teeth and their spacing.
