What Is the Difference Between Pentel Pencil Lead Sizes? Mechanical pencils are designed to hold one size of lead. The lower the number of the lead, the thinner it is. For example, 0.3 millimeters lead is thin and suitable for sketching and drawing small details. Thicker lead measures 0.7 millimeters and is ideal for coloring larger areas. Lead is also determined by its hardness. Soft lead is represented by the letter B. Medium lead is HB and hard lead is known as H.
What Is Pentel Pencil Lead Made Of? Although it is referred to as lead, pencil lead is made from graphite. At one time, pencils contained the element lead until it was deemed unsafe. Graphite is non-toxic and meets all standards set by the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
How Do You Clean a Pentel Pencil Eraser? Pencil markings left behind on an eraser can cause smudges on paper. The preferred way to clean an eraser is to rub the eraser back and forth on a blank sheet of paper. You can also apply a small amount of glue stick and rub the eraser with your finger until both the glue and the pencil markings are gone.
