PILOT 622656 FRIXION COLOURS ERASABLE MARKER 2.5MM LIGHT BLUE BOX OF 12
The erasable Frixion Colours are felt tip markers that contain thermo sensitive gel ink. The heat generated by friction when rubbing the paper with the special tip turns the ink invisible. With no damage to the paper, you can erase and instantly re-colour over your mistakes. Great for colouring, you can even create interesting effects by rubbing out sections of block colour. The markers are also great for sewing as you can draw on fabric and then erase the ink by ironing over it. Frixion Colours are available in a wide range of colours. Note: Do not use Frixion Colours when signing legal documents, cheques, or when writing exams.
- Unique felt pens for drawing, colouring, erasing and restart to create, again and again, without limits!
- Thanks to the thermo-sensitive ink: Colour or draw, FriXion it and start again!
- Eraser on cap.

Erasable Ink Pens and Highlighters Category
After World War II the ballpoint pen started to replace the pencil as the writing instrument for the masses. People were using ink to quickly jot notes, write letters and even draft documents. But alas, any mistake of the handwritten word had to be coloured over leaving an unsightly blemish that distracted the reader's eye. Following a decade of research and development failures, in the early 80s the first erasable ink pens reached the marketplace. What made these new ballpoints so different from traditional pens was the ink. Instead of being made from oils and dyes, it was made with a liquid rubber component that had to be slightly pressurized to ensure a continuous flow. A positive consequence that made writing at a wider range of pen angles possible. However, some care has to be taken in protecting the written message (and the pen) from excessive heat that can cause the ink to fade.
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.
