This new member of the highly popular EnerGel family shares the quick drying, non-smudging properties of its sister products, but with an important new attribute: it has permanent ink.
New EnerGel Permanent is waterproof, light-fast and fade-resistant, making it perfect for signing cheques, contracts and other legal documents, with the surety of archival-quality ink. Fulfilling the criteria of DIN ISO 27668-2:2009, EnerGel Permanent ink is certified light-fast, non-erasable, resistant to ethanol, hydrochloric acid, bleach, ammonia and water.
With a retractable tip, sophisticated black barrel and comfortable, grooved finger grip in matt black, EnerGel Permanent is a sophisticated looking product, available in a choice of 0.5mm fine point or 0.7mm medium point. The 0.5mm tip features a gold coloured trim to the barrel, while the 0.7mm tip has silver-coloured accents. Each size is supplied in black, red or blue ink.
Wendy Vickery, Pentel Marketing Manager, says, “Identity fraud doesn’t only manifest itself in the theft of electronic data or printed details. Any important written information such as signatures, address details, witness statements or affidavits can fade after time, and not only when exposed to strong sunlight. Often without knowing, individuals can be vulnerable to the misuse of their documents, with costly results.
“New EnerGel Permanent, which is officially certified to be light-fast and water-resistant, adds a new level of protection for important documents and peace of mind for signatories. And because it has quick drying, smooth flowing EnerGel ink, like all our EnerGel products it reduces significantly any smudging on hands and paper for both right and left-handed writers.”
EnerGel Permanent will be available in boxed dozens, counter displays or on blister cards. Recommended retail price is £3.25 per pen including VAT and, in common with other products in the EnerGel range, both pens are made using recycled material.
2016 catalogues will carry EnerGel Permanent, and there will be plenty of activity to launch the range throughout the trade.
