Origin of the Korbond name

Origin of the Korbond Name - Henry Korski

Korbond! What does the name stand for? Simple really, Korbond is a combination of two words KOR which was part of the founders name KORSKI and BOND. The bond refers to the thermo plastic process that was being developed in the early 60’s for bonding textiles together for use in garment manufacturing and other commercial textile application.

Hence the name Korbond was derived.

Henry Korski was an early user of this technology developing products for interlinings, iron on products, shoe labels using non fray satin, bra strapping and carpet tapes. Henry eventually concentrated on products for household use and today’s products of hemming web, hemming tape, iron on menders, are all modern day decedents.
