The DUST-Free erasers for Faber-Castell writing pencils and crayons produce less debris and do not contain harmful phthalates. Phthalates have been blamed for various side effects when they come in contact with the human body. However, phthalates are still widely used in the production of erasers around the world. The balanced texture of the DUST-Free erasers guarantees a smooth erasure, without smudges.
The modern design of the GRIP eraser and its ergonomic design ensure smudge-free erasure. The GRIP 1871 triangular eraser is so impressive that it won the ISPA Award 2003 as one of the best new products on display.
