Airless Pen throws out marker caps. Airless Pen is created with a retractable silicon cap that prevents air inflow into the pen so the ink never runs dry. This specialized cap, which is installed in the pen, creates a small vacuum space where the water-based ink stays fluid. Airless Pen is a the perfect instrument for an individual’s creative space as it eliminates the hassle of pen caps.
WHAT DO EXPERT THINK ABOUT AIRLESS PEN?
A marker is filled with ink that is either oil or water-based. Typically, if you leave a marker with the cap off, the fluid evaporates, leaving only dry pigments, which cannot be used. To prevent this, a cap is used to prevent the evaporation process from occurring, but requires a marker to be capped and recapped with every use.
Constantly having to take the cap on and off can be quite bothersome and even irritating at times. The cap can also be lost easily. If a marker is left uncovered for even a few hours (sometimes less), it can dry out and become useless.
Now, THROW AWAY CAPS
HERE IS THE SOLUTION
The Airless pen, makes the cap obsolete. It is created with an internal and retractable silicone cap that prevents airflow into the pen, so the ink never runs dry. This specialized “sealed tube technology” creates a small vacuum where the water-based ink is preserved. Airless Pen is the perfect instrument for an individual’s creative space.
We developed Airless Pen's 'Sealed tube technology' which prevents the ink from drying for water-based pens, felt pens, highlighter pens and fountain pens. We were able to develop this technology by creating a small vacuum space where the water-based ink can stay fluid.
Unlike regular felt-tipped pens that come with caps that need to be replaced, the Airless Pen relies on a knock-type mechanism that deploys and retracts the nib. To prevent air from drying the nib out, the pen features a sealed-tube technology that allows the refill to sit inside the pen in an air-tight chamber, preventing air circulation within the pen’s ink chamber, and consequently keeping the refill from drying out.
We began Airless Pen from the question: "Why are there no markers without caps?"
As we are in the initial phase, there is expected to be trial and error. However, we are working hard to enhance the quality of Airless Pen. Retractable, easy to use and affordable solutions developed to streamline product delivery.
Risks and challenges
We currently have a mockup in preparation for mass production, and our prototypes have been rigorously tested by our engineering and manufacturing experts in order to create an optimal final product.
However, we are aware that Airless Pen may face additional changes to meet manufacturing requirements. In addition to keeping our backers up to date, we will make sure any changes during production uphold our mission and meet your interests. We will also keep backers continuously informed of any updates or changes.
We truly believe that we will bring Airless Pen to the masses, and we have networks and resources in tooling, manufacturing, distribution, and certification to make this happen.
We are ready for any challenges that we may encounter on the way, and we promise our complete devotion to bringing Airless Pen into production and to our backers on time. We promise complete transparency and we will communicate on a regular basis.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
