Our Technical Pen Cleaner will remove fresh, stubborn and old dried-on Indian and Permanent Inks from the steel tubular nibs of Technical and Drawing Pens.

We have tested it with Pelikan Drawing Ink A, Indian Ink, Permanent Pigmented Ink and others, it removed them all. Our cleaner has a pleasant smell, contains no CFC's or Aromatics, is biodegradable, re-usable, with a minimum usable life of 5 years.

Pour a small amount of Tech pen cleaner into a suitable container that has a lid and place the nib(s) into the solution. Leaver to soak for about 10 minutes, remove after this time and wash with water, dry on kitchen towel.

Inspect the nib and its feed for removal of the dried ink and check that the ink-feed/plunger makes the familiar knocking noise when shaken. If the internal working are still not clear of dried ink, re-soak for a further 10 minutes and re-check.

Persistence and patience pay dividends when cleaning drawing instruments.

Keep the used cleaning fluid in the lidded container and labelled, this can be re-used many times for cleaning your nibs as it has a long active life.
Available in sizes 50 ml and 125 ml.
