Button Bind for when quality is paramount

Quality in manufacturing
The Button Bind is the way to assure quality when manufacturing clothes with sew-on buttons. The button bind adheres to various types of buttons and keeps the thread in place, which highly reduces production loss and consumer returns.

The process is as simple as it is effective.

  • A strip of self-vulcanizing tape is removed from its card and then stretched to approximately double its length. This action starts the vulcanization process and also makes the tape more flexible and easy to work with.
  • The tape is wrapped around the neck of the button to form a soft necklace.

After these few steps, it only takes a short while for the tape to vulcanize and after that the button is secured in its place.

*Vulcanization or vulcanisation is a chemical process for converting rubber or related polymers into more durable materials via the addition of sulphur or other equivalent “curatives”. The additives modify the polymer by forming crosslinks (bridges) between individual polymer chains. (1) The vulcanized material is less sticky and has superior mechanical properties. A vast array of products are made with vulcanized rubber including tires, shoe soles, hoses and hockey pucks. The process is named after Vulcan, Roman God of Fire. Hard vulcanized rubber is known as ebonite or vulcanite and is used to make hard articles such as bowling balls and clarinet mouth pieces.

How does it work?

Button Bind is extremely easy to apply

One strip (14cm long) can be used for 5-10 buttons.

1. Take a strip and pull it to double its length.

2. Tie the strip a few turns around the neck of the thread, then press it with your fingers to make the material press and vulcanize together.

3. The thread is now fixed and the button will stay in place forever.

Button Binds robust and safe construction meets the latest industrial quality standards.

Button Bind has taken safety into account in all respects. It is ideal for use on garments where safety is an important factor for manufacturer-  and consumer satisfaction. And no buttons on the floor!

No more stray buttons on the floor.

Consumer Satisfaction

Button Bind Necklace is the bridge between garments and consumer satisfaction.
We would like to ascertain a lifelong relationship between consumers and their favourite labels.

When investing in a quality garment, one never ceases to be amazed about the extra buttons sewn into the lining. It’s a clear message that the manufacturer/tailor does not trust the staying power of the buttons on their pride of work. And while they’re at it, how about a sewing kit too, sewn into the lining. For honestly, how many of us have access to the the entire kit for attaching a button, when it counts?

Buttons seldom remove themselves at an appropriate time. Be it just before an important meeting, event, speech or perhaps a wedding. Having purchased a high end garment with the promise of quality and confidence, the wearer is proud of the cut, fit and label. So when, what might seem a minor incident to an observer; an innocent button fails, to the wearer it’s a major issue. Furthermore, it can cause a major rift to the love affair that is between the consumer and the label and perhaps even a boycott of loyalty. Because of a button. Button Bind to the rescue.

A chain is only as strong as its weakest link

How strong are your buttons?

Excellence is in the details …

A brief history of the button

The button has been keeping things together, for centuries.

It is thought that the humble yet extremely helpful button is as old as clothing itself. Estimates say that buttons are around 5000 years old and were first found in the Mohenjo-daro region in the Indus Valley, known today as modern day Pakistan.

Buttons of the time were made of curved shell with a decorative flat surface that were fastened into loops. At the time, the buttons primary function was aesthetic, serving as a beautiful ornament rather than as a fastening tool, and was almost never arranged in rows, but rather used singularly for pure decorational purpose.

It was first in the Middle Ages when the function of the button as a practical fastener took hold. In Europe, fashion of the time among aristocrats and royalty dictated close-fitting apparel which called for the button to hold it all together, so to say. The button was a true status symbol, indicating prestige, prosperity and wealth thus enjoyed only by those who had access to those means.

The button became popular among the masses and not just the upper class during the Industrial Revolution and mass-production began.

After having been made of bone, bronze, horn, shell and metals for centuries upon centuries, the price of buttons fell sharply when a new material was introduced in the 20th century; plastic.

The button has been with us forever it seems, and as useful as it is, it has also had its one practical flaw; more often than not, it fails and loses its connection to the thread and fabric to which it’s attached.

That is, until now. Button Bind has the answer and the technology with a simple system that keeps the buttons in place forever. It stands out in the history of the button as a technical revolution and it’s a game-changer for all involved. Read about the function here.
