• Pilot Pen announces new products for 2019

        • Pilot Pen has launched a range of new drawing and writing instruments for 2019 which are set to be in high demand from end-users and ‘must-haves’ to stock for retailers. As well as range extensions to existing products in the rollerball and marker pen offering, there is also a new product for the fineliner category.

          Pilot Pintor Water-based Arts and Crafts Marker

          Building on last year’s launch of Pilot Pintor, the water-based arts and crafts marker, the range has now been expanded to four tip sizes. In addition to the Fine and Medium bullet tip versions already available, these are now joined by a broad chisel-tip version and an extra-fine bullet tip. All four tip sizes are available in a range of 24 colours of water-based pigment paint (classic, pastel and metallic).

          The characteristics of Pintor ink means that it writes on all surfaces, but the surface properties influence whether it is permanent or non-permanent. On a porous surface such as wood, paper, cardboard, clothing fabrics or stone it is permanent whilst it is removable on non-porous surfaces such as plastic, glass, metal and chalk boards by wiping with a damp cloth and washing up liquid. 

          Compared to other water-based paint markers, Pilot Pintor boasts a strong and durable tip material with quicker drying paint. 

          For 2019, Pilot has also launched a new modular display solution for Pintor to create an impactful in-store presence for the full range. 

          Pilot FriXion Fineliner – Erasable Writing Felt Pen

          The Pilot FriXion Fineliner is available in up to 12 colours and combines Pilot’s erasable ink technology with a precise felt-tip handwriting pen. With the FriXion Fineliner you can rub out your mistakes with the eraser stud and watch the ink disappear as if by magic. The ink responds to the heat generated by the rubbing out, and lets you write over your mistake immediately again. 

          For younger writers, it’s the perfect alternative to a pencil and a great first step into writing with ink. Also, the ink is non-permanent so can be removed by washing or with a hot iron. The 1.3mm fibre tip gives a 0.45mm fine line.

          FriXion Ball Broad

          The original erasable rollerball pen is now available in a broad tip for a thicker line width. Just like the FriXion Fineliner, you can write, erase and re-write your notes everyday with the Pilot FriXion. The 1.0mm tip gives a 0.5mm broad line. Another benefit to the pens is that they are refillable, allowing end-users to reduce plastic waste and save money.
