What is the benefit of using a reversible tip marker?
Reversible tip markers allow you to have the benefits of multiple marker tips without needing to purchase multiple markers.
What is the best model of marker to use for electrical and wiring work?
U-Phase® markers are the best tool for electric and wire marking. By using U-Phase® markers, electricians can mark and phase panels in seconds. A much faster and easier process than using vinyl tape, while having a much lower environmental impact.
Are U-Mark's markers environmental friendly?
Greenlabel® paints and inks are xylene-free and comply with California Prop. 65, are not part of the U.S. E.P.A. list of Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs) and conform with E.U. RoHs Directive 2002/95/EC. U-Mark also provides replacement tips for markers that still have paint, reducing the amount of waste from unfinished markers being prematurely thrown out.
Are xylene-free liquid markers as good as regular paint markers?
U-Mark's xylene-free paint markers dry as fast as 30 seconds, are suitable for industrial purposes and resistant to water, weather, oils, and solvents. An extra bonus is that they won't have the distinctive marker odour.
My marker's tip is ruined, but there is still ink in the marker. What can I do?
If you still have paint in your markers and your marker tips are not performing, you can purchase replacement tips that allow you to continue to work without purchasing a new marker. This has the added benefit of reducing waste.
Are U-Mark's markers toxic?
U-Mark's markers are non-toxic per ASTM D 4236 and xylene-free.
