Like a small town talent who turned into a supermodel, the newest FriXion now sports a glamorous new look. It is incredible to believe that there is now an erasable gel pen that is as fine as 0.4 mm! That's thinner than most gel pens available in the US, and that makes these new pens as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside.
Pilot has really had a breakthrough in technology with the FriXion line. The pens have a special rubber end to rub the thermo sensitive ink away with, thus no eraser by-products are produced, yet the ink disappears magnificently. The pen writes smoothly, in colorful lines, and erases without a trace!
Interestingly enough, the ink in these pens will actually reappear when the temperature reaches below – 10 C (under 14 Fahrenheit). A freezer is sufficiently cold enough to make the ink start to reappear. It is like a magic pen for adults!
Because the ink in this pen is thermo sensitive, we do not advise for it to be left in hot cars, used for mailing, copying, or subjected to a condition that exposes it to a lot of friction.
