20150218_if_1Tombow Pencil Co., Ltd. (President, Akihiro Ogawa, head office, Kita-ku, Tokyo) has been awarded the “iF Design Award 2015″ (iF award) in the latest glue tapes ” PIT Power-D”. The iF award was awarded 13 times in Correction Tape a row for the second consecutive year following Plastic Eraser the award of MONO ” MONO -ergo” and “mono-smart” in 2014.
” PIT Power-D” is a refill-type glue tapes glue that strengthened the adhesive power by 20% (our ratio). In addition, the new mechanism “Pitasystem” (the idling mechanism which automatically advances the glue tapes about one millimeter) is installed from the beginning. It is suitable for the seal such as a thick Kraft envelope.
Because it is a commodity that OL is a main user (with respect to the design), I tried to put out the loveliness which does not feel a complex mechanism. As individuals tend to pick and choose the stationery they use at work, the color of the main body is also in the office, and it’s fun to use and colorful. (Chihiro Iseki)
