The first felt-tip marker was patented more than century ago. Much like today's permanent marker, it had its own ink source and a tip made of a porous, hard-pressed felt fiber. Prior to the 1990s, most marking pens contained a water-proof ink that was composed of common solvents such as toluene and xylene as well as a protective cap to keep the marker from prematurely drying out. These substances were easily identified by their strong, pungent odour. Since then, toluene (which has the potential to cause severe neurological damage) and xylene (which is labeled as a moderate hazard) have been replaced by formulations of alcohols. Due to the extreme popularity of a particular trademarked brand, many people still refer to a felt-tip marker as a "Magic Marker" which is a proprietary eponym. Today, Pilot offers a selection of permanent markers in various tip sizes, colours and metallic inks such as silver or gold.
Pilot is a global Japanese brand known for innovation and quality writing instruments. In Australia, Pilot is the brand of choice amongst consumers looking for a smooth writing experience combined with quality and reliability. The Pilot range is extensive, covering premium gold nib fountain pens to everyday ballpoint pens and markers. Most pens are manufactured in Japan, with some also made in France and the US.
Innovation is a key to Pilot’s global success. In 2005 Pilot created ‘FriXion’, Australia’s best selling erasable pen. FriXion uses a unique thermo-sensitive gel ink. The friction caused by rubbing the paper generates heat which causes the ink to become invisible. With no damage to the paper, you can erase and instantly re-write over your mistakes.
