Have you ever wanted to quickly mark text or numbers on PVC pipe? Here in Arizona, Magic Marker and label maker tags fade in less than a year. Yet the Purple Primer used to prepare PVC joints seems impervious. This article shows you how to modify a $5 pen to meter out Purple Primer.
The challenger was that this primer is mostly acetone which melts most marker bodies. The solution was to buy a marker used to remove nail polish. Most nail polish remover contains a lot of acetone.

I just painted some Purple Primer on the outside of a Magic Marker and the plastic was unaffected. The next time I have an empty marker, I will refill with primer. Great finding!
I have tested regular gel pens and that plastic melts when in contact with primer. I suspect it would melt with Dykem too.
