Xylene is extraordinary paint solvent. The oil-based markers dry almost instantly and create a protective film that will almost never goes away after drying.
Lightfastness is our most important criteria since xylene enables the use of the colorants that enable durable light fastness good solubility.
As opposed to older fashioned formulas that use alkyd solutions, the result of consistent innovation has enabled new methods of laying down a homogenous paint layer and film that can mark over water, under water, and on oily surfaces.
Once dry, the mark produced by the oil-based paint will be durable and long lasting. Perfect for industrial use.
Oil-based marking pens such as xylene are able to bring the best brightness and visibility out of pigments viewed from any angle.
All our pens are made in the U.S.A. with the highest quality control standards. Consistency, reliability. and solidly built. Even after 50+ years of making marking pens, we are still dedicated to constant improvement and innovation.
Back in 1964, George Pappageorge introduced valve controlled paint markers to the industrial market. Since then, the Pappageorge family has have been designing, perfecting, valve patented valve mechanisms to deliver paint when needed and seal the barrel when not in use. A huge number of nibs have been used for different purposes with different temperature tolerances, flow velocities, hardnesses, and materials. We cant make a different nib for everyone. So it is our job to make the most versatile and effective general use paint markers.
Under normal general use, marking pens are 100% safe to use. So why do we see warning and pictograms on the labels and Safety Data Sheets?
