pennino FusionFor its 30th anniversary, Delta presents a new nib, fully covered by  international patent, which takes advantages of chemical-phisical differences between steel and gold.

Historically, the best material for nibs was always been gold, being it the noble metal par excellence, and the most resistant to ink’s corrosion.
However, technological developments have allowed the production of steel alloys which offer a similar – or better – writing experience than the gold ones, with a greater flexibility and mechanical resistance, and the same resistance to corrosion.
In spite of all, usually a steel nibbed fountain pen is considered as low value and modest appeal.

pennino Fusion DeltaFusion: the new nib, invented by Delta.

It’s composed by a combination of different materials (so far, steel and gold) that give better functionality, enhancing the chemical-physical properties of ink with an assembly system adapted to increase the efficiency of the pen itself..
Moreover, the fountain pen is more precious and less expensive.

The FUSION nib shows a “plate” of precious metal (gold, or palladium, or other noble alloys) which, due to its high features of thermal conductivity, will tend to heat the underlying metal (steel, titanium or other); the underlying metal, in turn, transfers heat to the ink in transit between the conductor and the tip of the nib.
The higher temperature makes the ink flow more smoothly.

All the while, the nib will show characteristics of strength and durability for long writing sessions higher than all-gold nibs’ ones.
