Although the Mackintosh coat style has become generic, a genuine Mackintosh coat is made from rubberised or rubber laminated material. It has been claimed that the material was invented by the surgeon James Syme , but then copied and patented by Charles Macintosh ;  Syme's method of creating the solvent from coal tar was published in Thomson's Annals of Philosophy in ;  this paper also describes the dissolution of natural rubber in naphtha.
However, an exhaustive history of the invention of the Mackintosh was published by Schurer in Syme did not propose the sandwich idea and his paper did not mention waterproofing. Waterproofing garments with rubber was an old idea, and was practised in pre-Columbian times by Aztecs, who impregnated fabric with latex. Later, French scientists made balloons gas-tight and incidentally, impermeable by impregnating fabric with rubber dissolved in turpentine, but this solvent was not satisfactory for making apparel.
In Macintosh's company merged with the clothing company of Thomas Hancock in Manchester. Hancock had also been experimenting with rubber coated fabrics since Production of rubberised coats soon spread all over the UK.
Every kind of coat was produced with rubberized material including riding coats and coats supplied to the British Army, British railways, and UK police forces. Early coats had problems with smell, stiffness, and a tendency to melt in hot weather, but Hancock further improved his waterproof fabrics, patenting a method for vulcanising rubber in which solved many of the problems.
Throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, the company continued to make waterproof clothing. In the company was taken over by Dunlop Rubber. In the mids the Mackintosh brand owner, Traditional Weatherwear, was on the verge of closing its factory in Blairlinn , Cumbernauld near Glasgow.

The coats became particularly popular with Japanese women, and the company won a Queen's Award for Enterprise in for its success in international trade.
