For 100 years a constant problem in the pen industry was breakage or damage. So many timeless pens have been made from celluloid, but unfortunately it has very bad resistance to heat and can easily crystallize with age, eventually showing the age of and ultimately ruining the pen. In the twenties, pen makers were used to throwing pens from airplanes to demonstrate the resistance of celluloid. Pineider does it again, bit UltraResin. This new material will set you free from the mess of a pen drop or cracks, that most of time is the beginning of a nightmare that will often end with returns, complaints and expenses.
Joining incredible beauty and a very high resistance to any kind of impact, each Avatar UR is crafted with a mother of pearl compound resin in a special formula, called UltraResin. Developed in Florence specifically for Pineider, this compound is very stiff and its exceptional features makes it far better than celluoid, the historical material of the pen industry. UltraResin is extremely rigid, nearly like metal, incredibly resistant to hits, resistant to oils, inks, electricity, to high and low temperatures, to UVrays, to any weathering condition, and lastly nearly unbreakable. Not only strong, UltraResin is also quite luxurious with an extremely glossy surface, mother of pearl sheen and marbleized colors. Whether it be a deep black or a clear shine.
These are refillable with "Schmidt 888 Style" Rollerball pen refills.
