I work in a science lab...
, December 6, 2010
I work in a science lab where we use and often spill stuff like water, alcohol
and acetone. I need a pen that won't run when it gets wet with water or
solvents. The Black Fine Point Pilot Multiball is perfect for lab use. It
doesn't run in any of these solvents and it writes on the slick label tapes
(Time Tape for those know) and on metal, glass and plastics of all kinds. On
glass and hard plastic, you have to write slowly and sometimes restart the pen
with a piece of paper, but it will write on hard smooth surfaces. True the
Sharpie can do all this, but it stinks and bleeds through paper too much to use
in a lab notebook. The Multiball does not bleed through and doesn't have any
The ability to rely on one pen all day to write on anything and at such a low
price and not worry about bleeding through, re-capping, smell, running when wet,
etc... makes my life just a little bit easier. We can all appreciate that.
Next, I'm going to test all the colors with solvents and surfaces, but I'm very
optimistic about the results. Good job Pilot!
