What does "Valve Controlled" Mean?

When you see this seal, the referred markers use Arro-Mark® Company L.L.C.’s patented valve-controlled mechanism. This is how the nib is exposed to the paint inside the barrel. By applying pressure to the tip so that it recedes inside the marker, the valve opens and saturates the nib with paint or ink. When you let go of the pressure, the valve closes. After the initial inking process, the pressure to the nib created from normal writing use will, in most cases, sufficiently supply the nib with paint. When the marker is not in use, the paint contained inside the barrel is completely sealed. As opposed to capillary action pens, valve-controlled markers can be stored in any orientation without drying out. Our valve-controlled technology allows the user ultimate control over how much paint or ink can fill the nib.

California Proposition 65

Labeling requirements vary per state and country. California’s recent amendment to their Prop. 65 requires us to display a warning if a product contains chemicals recognized by the State of California to pose risks of cancer or developmental harm. On our product labels, SDS sheets, website pages, and in the product descriptions of our catalog, we display all required warnings according to California Prop. 65.

All our Markers are GHS Compliant

All our labeling is carefully written with OSHA's Globally Harmonized Standards in mind. Although our products are a liquid mixture in a contained marking pen form, we may display warnings and pictograms that were originally meant for the individual chemicals used to create the markers. Pigments such as Carbon Black, Titanium Dioxide, etc. are listed as carcinogenic or otherwise harmful due to their risks of inhalation in their powdered form. Our markers do not pose the same health risks as the individual chemicals when they come from their respective manufacturers. We list all pictograms and warnings in our SDS sheets and Labels that come from the chemical manufacturers, nonetheless.
