Historical Note

E.I. du Pont de Nemours & Company is a chemical company more commonly referred to as the DuPont company, established in 1802. In 1910, the DuPont Company purchased the Fabrikoid Company of Newburgh, New York, which had developed a textile coating process. DuPont found the production facilities to be unsatisfactory and their chemists improved the product in the span of a few years. It was used in upholstery, luggage, and bookbinding. In the 1920s and 1930s, automobile manufacturers used Fabrikoid in convertible tops and seat covers, but by the 1940s new, more durable vinyl-coated fabrics overtook the market.
