Which edding product can I use to write on slate and slate chalkboards?

For permanent writing on slate chalkboards we recommend our edding 4000 matt paint markers and edding 4040 matt paint markers. These pens are ideal for semi-matt designs on dark and particularly porous surfaces. Their paint-like, opaque ink is water-based and odour-free, as well as being weatherproof and extremely lightfast.

If you want to be able to wipe the writing off a slate chalkboard then we recommend our chalk markers, such as the edding 4090 or the edding 4095. If the surface of your chalkboard is smooth and non-porous, you should be able to wipe off the writing easily with a damp cloth.

Both our matt paint markers and our chalk markers operate with a pump system, so you need to shake them well before use. After shaking, remove the cap and pump the marker until ink appears in the nib.
