Our FriXion products’ ink “erases” due to PILOT’s exclusive thermo-sensitive ink technology. When you want to make corrections on your page, simply turn around your FriXion pen and rub with the FriXion eraser tip as if using a regular pencil eraser. While rubbing, the ink heats up to over 60°C and becomes invisible. Conversely, the ink reappears at temperatures of under -10°C.
2. Help! I use FriXion pens and my notebook / page is now empty without a trace of my work! What should I do?
Leaving items such as notebooks, homework or paper near heaters, in a car on a hot day or even putting pages through repeated photocopying, can heat the paper sufficiently to make FriXion ink invisible. If you find your page to be empty, simply put it in the freezer for a short period of time. Our thermo-sensitive ink reappears at around -10°C, so your work should reappear once more when the pages sufficiently cool.
3. Help! I left my FriXion pens outside in the heat and now they no longer work!
Just as the ink disappears when pages are left in the heat, so can the ink inside the FriXion pens. If your pen doesn’t seem to be writing, try to remember whether the pen may have been over-exposed to heat. If so, try putting your pen in the freezer until it sufficiently cools. After taking your pen out of the freezer and letting it readjust to room temperature, it should write again like new.
Our products are sold by all the leading supermarkets and hypermarkets and by the majority of news agencies and office suppliers. Nevertheless, if you are having difficulties finding one of our products in particular, please do not hesitate to contact us. Wherever possible, we will give you the name of your closest reseller.
Using a centralised order process, we make frequent deliveries to our sellers via a central warehouse. So, we do not always know what is delivered to which store.
All of the inks and barrels used in our products have been designed for maximum safety, particularly with regards to children. For example, our markers do not contain toxic solvents such as Xylene or Toluene.
Furthermore, the caps on our non-retractable models satisfy the ISO 11540 standard. They are equipped with a ventilation system which allows breathing in case the cap is ingested.
Finally, our internal services have all our product components available immediately on digital media in order to assist the medical profession in the event of serious accidents.
9. Where can I find refills, cartridges or even leads or eraser refills?
Our objective is to be able to offer a wide range of writing instruments, but also that your writing pleasure with your Pilot pen does not stop when it needs refilling. In addition to being economical, refilling your pens is environmentally friendly.
That's why we want to offer this type of service in specialist news agencies or even department stores.
