Rolling Ball Pens Category
Similar to a ballpoint, roller ball pens dispense a lower-viscosity liquid or gel ink through a rolling ball tip. As the popularity of the modern writing instrument evolved, designers began to search for an ink that was more easily absorbed by paper than traditional oil-based inks. Additionally, manufacturers were under pressure to produce a pen that would glide more smoothly over the paper's surface, similar to the fluid motion of its predecessor, the fountain pen. Water-based roller ball inks immediately lowered the hand pressure needed to write, which in turn allowed for quicker writing speeds. Gelled inks were soon to follow and had an added advantage in greatly increasing the number of unique colours available. Unfortunately, the higher viscosity of gel ink can produce a skipping effect that on occasion leaves a faint gap in handwritten lines or lettering. Today's rolling ball pens seek to balance the advantages and disadvantages to satisfy many needs.
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.
