Maximum ink utilization combined with leak protection

POREX® reservoirs are formed from a controlled density of fibers in an extruded seal, allowing you to contain and deliver the maximum amount of ink to your coloring markers.

Our reservoir media designed specifically for coloring markers:

  • Maximize ink utilization–Our customized ink flow management solution combines a nib and reservoir to deliver the maximum amount of ink.
  • Ensure leak protection–Capillary forces and materials are customized to your specific coloring marker’s requirements.

Nibs for Coloring Markers

Customize ink flow management with two nib technologies

Porex offers two distinct nib technologies for use in coloring markers depending on the specific design needs of the marker:

  • POREX® sintered particle nibs are 3D-molded porous plastic nibs with the ideal mix of porosity and capillarity to deliver ink to the writing surface. Safe for children’s applications, our sintered PE nibs write with a smooth, durable feel.
  • POREX® polyester fiber nibs are a combination of polyester fiber and bonding resin, optimized for high ink flow and shaped to your coloring marker’s specifications.

 

Manufactured into nearly any imaginable shape, both types of nibs for coloring markers deliver high ink flow to work in tandem with reservoirs to deliver a consistently high amount of ink.
