Markal® Unveils New Quik Stik Mini Solid Paint Marker
New Marker Gives Trade Professionals the Ultimate in High Performance and Convenience in a Smaller Package
ELK GROVE, IL – In keeping with its commitment to innovation, LA-CO Industries has introduced the Quik Stik® Mini to the expansive line of Markal®-brand industrial markers. The Quik Stik Mini is a compact industrial marker that uses high quality paint to provide the functionality and reliability trade professionals have come to expect from Markal.
This smooth-marking, solid paint marker dries in 5 to 7 minutes to allow for almost immediate handling, eliminating downtime. Made for tough industrial jobs, the durable plastic barrel will not break and the convenient twist-up knob easily advances and retracts the solid paint for 100% marker use. The self-storing, clip cap prevents the marker from rolling off work benches and creates a complete airtight seal, keeping the paint fresh until you next job.
Available in four bold, UV- and weather-resistant colors, the Quik Stik Mini creates marks that last, even in extreme conditions. Perfect for marking on wet, hot, smooth and rough surfaces, the marker has the industry’s largest marking temperature range of 0°F to 392°F (-18°C to 200°C). Markal’s Quik Stik Mini is small enough to fit in your pocket yet powerful enough for even the toughest surfaces including, metal, concrete, plastic, wood and lumber. With its small body and durable paint, this tool is an ideal marking solution for use in welding, ship-building, oil and gas, metal fabrication, and construction.
“At Markal, we believe our products should work as hard as the trade professionals who use them,” said Kevin Talbott, Industrial Marketing Manager for Markal. “We listened to the suggestions of tradesmen and created the Quik Stik Mini, a tool that is easily carried, used and stored.”
In addition to unveiling the new Quik Stik Mini, Markal has re-launched the Quik Stik® with its new package design. Quik Stik is the largest fast drying solid paint marker on the market, containing twenty percent more paint than other brands. Like the Mini, the Quik Stik is fast drying, allowing users to immediately handle marked items, increasing efficiency. With the health of end users in mind, both markers also boasts a xylene-free formula with no 2-butoxyenthonyl.
