ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL - July 8, 2003 - Raising the bar for size and performance in industrial markers, the new Markal® PRO-MAX(TM) Paint Marker delivers the largest paint mark available in a Valve Action® paint marker. With a broad tip nib measuring more than ½ inch, PRO-MAX is the marker of choice for making big, bold, permanent markings on virtually any surface.

Featuring a permanent paint that is specifically formulated for industrial applications, PRO-MAX Paint Markers write clearly on all surfaces, including metal, glass, plastic, rubber, cardboard and finished wood. PRO-MAX can also mark sheet metal, lumber, tires, metal or plastic pipe, cartons, inventory tags, bins and signs.

"The Pro-Max Paint Marker offers distinct advantages where highly-visible, permanent markings are desired," said Tracy Tryboski, product marketing specialist, industrial/welding division. Raw material identification, shipping/receiving identification, signage and fill-in marking for fabrication are a few of the many applications for this extra large marker.

o Will mark on nearly all surfaces and in all temperatures (within 0°F to 150°F);

o Produces durable, highly-visible heavy lines that dry in minutes and are completely weather-resistant;
