Once the basic design for the first mass-produced felt tip marker reached the marketplace, manufacturers were quick to recognize that expanded applications were dependent on discovering new inks. With a growing demand for writing instrument that could be used to draw attention to written or printed text, ink developers turned to a water-soluble fluorophore called pyranine. Due to its high water-binding capacity and pH-sensitive properties, it became the secret ingredient for the first (fluorescent yellow) transparent ink used in a highlighter. From marking memorable passages in a book to identifying important information on a shipping label, the everyday applications for multi-coloured highlighters are unlimited. Being fluorescent, highlighter ink glows under black light causing many bars or clubs take advantage of the ink's phosphors to mark patrons hands for reentry. Today, Pilot offers a selection of fluorescent markers including the chisel-point Spotliter and the complete Frixion line of erasable highlighters.
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.
