Lineco Archival pen. Use this pen to test paper products for acidity. It provides an easy method to distinguish between acid-free and unsafe acidic materials. The chlorophenol red solution in the pen will turn a purple / lavender color on acid-free or neutral paper with a pH of 6.8 or above. A yellow or colourless result indicates the paper is acidic. If you are making photocopies and expect them to be "safe", well, you might get a surprise! Try this.
