Industrial Paint Markers

Posted by Matt Martin

Industrial markers can be found in environments as diverse as factory floors and outdoor construction sites. These markers are designed to be highly pigmented, create clear and crisp marks, and reliably last in even the harshest environments. Some styles of industrial markers, however, are designed to be removed, either with detergent or water.

  • Surface to be marked
  • Weather elements
  • Extreme conditions (heat, cold, etc.)
  • Durability of mark (permanent versus removable)
  • Post-mark processes (solvents, coatings, etc.)

What Our Customers Are Saying

Durable's industrial paint markers made their way to Garrett Denton, the youngest winner in NASCAR Whelen All-American Series history so that he can record Make-A-Wish donators permanently atop his car. 

From Garrett Denton's website:

"Durable Technology stepped in and donated markers so that your name will last the entire season on the star that you sponsor.  It is important to Garrett that everyone who supports Make-A-Wish this season is visible in lasting ink throughout the season on their star. Durable Technologies had just the marker. The "Mighty Marker" is an industrial strength marker that will be permanent on any surface. Thank you, Durable Technology, for your quick response and generous offer to supply these markers. Wow! They arrived the very next day."
