    YKK is a brand name. One of the best known and most respected.

    looks like continuous metal coil. just has a coating of some sort on it. i still wouldn't worry about it rusting though. but, you'd have to know that it's ykk or otherwise need have the pulls that go with it. you have to use pulls of the same brand whatever that is, otherwise they won't fit on there. if it's ykk, those pulls are readily avail.

    k i'll find some kky pulls and end stops and see if they can manipulate the zipper mechanism, what would a hammock length zipper with pulls and endstops be worth?

    you can get ykk pulls and see prices at owf. they can be trickey to put on, just remember the pull and the zipper both have an up and a down side, these have to match, offset the zipper sides by about a tooth to get it on.

    you're looking at continuous coil metal zip tape, sold by the yard

    I believe what you have there is Y2K plastic coil #5 continious zipper. Made between the years 2002 and 2004 in the the Southwest province of Turkey. Ok I made that last part up.
