FAQs

General Help
 
1. Can I remove a permanent ink stain?
2. What is the difference between the Chalk Marker and the Opaque Ink Board marker?
3. Where can I find the MSDS sheets?
4. Do you offer refills?
5. What happens if I lose the cap to my Artline pen?

1. Can I remove a permanent ink stain?

 

As the name suggests the ink is designed to be permanent.  The properties in permanent ink will make it difficult to be removed from the marked surface.  Depending on the surface/material that has been marked a proprietary detergent may “fade” the mark but may not remove totally. A solvent or white spirit can be used, however we can only advise that caution is taken when trying to remove the ink mark with solvent as this can sometimes seal the ink making it more difficult to be removed.  When using white spirit a dabbing action rather than rubbing the mark should be adopted.  A patch test should always be done as using solvents or white spirit as they may damage the surface that has been marked. 

If a permanent marker has been used on a whiteboard by mistake – going over the mark with a whiteboard marker will remove the ink.

 

 

2. What is the difference between the Chalk Marker and the Opaque Ink Board marker?

The main difference is the Opaque Ink Board Marker has “dry erase” ink while the Chalk Marker is “wet erase”. The density of colour is greater in the Opaque Ink Board Marker in comparison to the Chalk Marker.

 

 

3. Where can I find the MSDS sheets?

 

We are more than happy to supply you with any of our MSDS sheets. Please contact us at sales@shachihata.eu with your requirements.

 

 

 

4. Do you offer refills?

 

We produce refill inks for a number of our pens and stamps; Artline marking INK for permanent markers and Artline refill INK for whiteboards.

Contact us for more information.

 

 

 

5. What happens if I lose the cap to my Artline pen?

 

A number of our pens have performance characteristics which will protect the pen from drying out. A pen with the characteristics of Dry Safe Ink can last between 48 hours and 2 weeks, depending on the pen.
