: (Valve Tip Applicator type) Formulated to ISO 8296.
Our Dyne Testing Pens are the valve tip applicator type and not the “Felt Tip
Pen” type. The Valve Tip Applicator principle is simple: keep the testing part of
the pen away from the fuid storage part of the pen (in other words, no wicking
from the substrate). By pressing the pen tip frmly down, the valve is opened
and fresh fuid foods the tip; thus fushing it clean, this allows the tester to
lightly pass over the sample to accurately determine the Dyne level. The
disposable pens have a fuid capacity of 15ml and are available in 1 Dyne
(mN/m) increments from 30 to 70 mN/m.
Standard Pack 6 pens: 36, 40, 44, 48, 52 & 56 mN/m in pen box.
SelfSelect Pack 6 pens: Select any 6 pens between 30 & 60 mN/m in pen box.
ConverterPack 6 pens: 38, 38, 42, 42, 44 & 44 mN/m in pen box.

Individual pens Select from range 30 – 70.
38-40 PENS (Red ink)
Use a slight pressure to draw the pen tip across the surface to be tested. If the
ink lines shrink or bead within 1-2 seconds then the surface is NOT treated to a
level of 38 Dynes. If the ink lines remain as marked and do not shrink then the
test sample surface IS treated to a level of 38 Dynes or higher.
