Default Material on a YKK VISLON zipper (the actual fabric, not the plastic zipper.)

I'm trying to get my hands on a the material that the YKK #10 VISLON zippers are molded into. When you buy the zipper, you have a piece of fabric on each side, and then the zipper on the edge... does anyone know the proper name for that material? I need to sew about 1/2" "wider" band and I'd like to use the same material.

Sorry if this is a bit cryptic, but anyone's who has ever sewn a zipper knows the material I'm talking about...

You can see the material here:
