New DURA-INK® WashAway from Markal® Delivers High-Visibility Marks that Completely Wash Off Work Surfaces



Compact ink marker dries fast, requires no special cleaners to remove



ELK GROVE VILLAGE, Ill. – Markal®, the global leader in high-performance, hand-held industrial marking products, today announced the launch of DURA-INK WashAway, a high-visibility, no-smear jobsite marker that can also be washed away from work surfaces.



Markal’s new DURA-INK WashAway industrial marker is engineered with a special ink formula that is bright and highly visible, and dries fast, but can be removed from all non-porous surfaces with water or detergent.  DURA-INK WashAway removes completely without traces of ghosting or residue and will not interfere with top-coat primers, paints, or powder coating.



DURA-INK WashAway is ideally engineered for automotive assembly, quality control, metal fabrication, power coating, glass production and in steel mills and warehouses.  Effective for marking on steel and iron, glass, aluminum and other materials, the chisel tip  delivers easy-to-read marks of 1/8 inch (3 mm) or 5/16 inch (8 mm).



“Every industrial marker needs to create a clear, easy-to-read mark on materials in the industrial setting; however, there are many circumstances under which those marks must be later removed to complete the job,” said Benjamin Kleiman, director of marketing for LA-CO Industries, manufacturer of Markal brands. “DURA-INK WashAway uniquely meets both requirements, thereby improving jobsite efficiency and requiring no harsh solvents or abrasives to remove.”



Mr. Kleiman added that DURA-INK WashAway is specially formulated without xylene , which is of particular importance to the industries served by Markal products.



“According to the EPA, short-term exposure to xylene results in irritation of the eyes, nose, throat and gastrointestinal system; while long-term exposure can negatively impact the central nervous system, as well as cardiovascular and respiratory systems.  Our new DURA-INK WashAway is an important step toward removing the dangers of xylene from the jobsite environment,” he said. 



Available in pink, blue and green ink, Malkal’s new DURA-INK WashAway is quick and easy to use, features a compact design for improved comfort and control, and a clip cap for easy story and to reduce rolling off of work surfaces.
