What are the differences between dry erase markers for whiteboards ?
There are two main categories of markers for whiteboards: chisel markers (broad tip cut at an angle) and fine markers (fine tip). Fine markers are the most commonly used to write with a constant stroke, while chisel markers allow you to draw strokes of different widths depending on the orientation of the tip. Other features can also distinguish markers such as ink type. Inks containing alcohol often have a faint odor. Ketone-based ink facilitates cleaning even after several days. There are also pens with an aluminum body that retain the ink better and are better suited in the professional and industrial environment. The body is more resistant to shocks and temperature increases, compared to a plastic body. It is recommended to arrange the markers flat to standardize the ink in the marker. If you store the tip marker up, the ink will flow down over time and the marker will become dry. Conversely, if you have your marker with the tip down, all the pigment in the pen will focus on the tip.
