• Pentel unveils antibacterial pen

        • Pentel has launched a new pen to help reduce contamination and the associated risk of infection when items are used and potentially shared with others.

          Based on the slimline styling and with the same trusted performance of the ballpoint pen of the original name, Superb Antibacterial is the latest new product from Pentel’s European factory near Paris.

          Both the barrel and the cap of Superb Antibacterial contain silver ions with antibacterial, biocidal properties, which inhibit the growth of bacteria to prevent it from spreading on the surface of the pen.  The silver ion technology helps keep the bacterial count as low as possible.

          For added peace of mind, the new pen is certified to ISO 22196 standard, which measures antibacterial activity on plastics and other non-porous surfaces and conforms to EU regulation 528/2012 concerning the use of biocides on treated articles.

          Wendy Vickery, Pentel Marketing Manager said, “our new Superb Antibacterial ballpoint pen will become a welcome problem-solver in situations where it might otherwise have been advisable to sanitise writing instruments that are likely to be shared among individuals. It’s ideal for use in a multitude of environments including manufacturing and logistics, healthcare, offices and schools, plus restaurants and leisure facilities.

          “Awareness of public hygiene has been awakened during this pandemic and we firmly believe that good hygiene practices are here to stay, even after the current crisis recedes. So, the Superb Antibacterial pen provides a great solution for our customers to offer end-users throughout the country.”

          With a light blue barrel, Superb Antibacterial is distinguishable from its original namesake yet shares the same, smooth-writing ink and integral nib cleaner in the cap, for crisp, clean writing. Available in a choice of black or blue ink, the Superb Antibacterial pen is supplied in boxes of 12, a four-piece wallet or a counter display unit for retailers with a retail price of £1.71 per pen.
