Nibs for Highlighters

Customize ink flow management with two nib technologies

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

  • POREX® sintered PE nibs are 3D-molded porous plastic nibs providing the ultimate in smooth writing feel and highly durable to keep their shape throughout the life of the highlighter.
  • POREX® polyester nibs are a combination of polyester fiber and bonding resin, and are compatible with most inks including high solids/highly pigmented ink. 

 

Manufactured into various customizable shapes, both types of nibs for highlighters deliver high ink flow to work in tandem with reservoirs to deliver a consistently positive writing experiences.
