It has normally been thought difficult to make an airtight pen with a screw-type cap. If not sealed tightly, the following problems can result:
1. Ink drying out due to moisture evaporation.
2. Problems with dried ink if the pen is not used for three to six months.
3. It can be necessary to clean the pen using our Ink Cleaner Kit or even to repair or replace the nib itself if the damage due to dried ink is too severe.
At the request of customers, Platinum Pen Company have gone back to the basics to deal with this problem. This is the first fountain pen which has the unique “Slip & Seal” structure in a pen with a screw-type cap. Thanks to this innovation, currently being patented, it is possible to have a screw-type cap with complete airtightness.
The Slip and Seal Mechanism Fountain Pen Series
This is the first fountain pen to feature the unique “Slip and Seal” mechanism, currently being patented, in an open with screw type cap. This mechanism suppresses volatilization of the ink, so that pen owners can enjoy can enjoy smooth writing and fresh ink even when a cartridge has been inserted in the pen for up to a year.
This mechanism allows the ink to remain in an airtight state while preventing annoying ink bubbles. It is perfect for pen owners who have little time for pen maintenance and even less for leaking ink. This high performance pen is designed for reliable everyday use. We trust that Platinum pen owners will enjoy this new mechanism and fresh ink that it provides.
