Since its creation in 1918 to modern times PILOT has continually innovated and pushed the boundaries of the technology applied to writing instruments. Today PILOT is one of the only manufacturers in the world able to perform all the stages necessary in developing a writing instrument. This is due to a particularly successful research and development service, an integrated design department, a powerful manufacturing facility and a sales network spread throughout all the continents.

Over the years, PILOT has developed a wide range of exclusive and specific inks. The brand's chemical engineering expertise and significant investments in research, have allowed PILOT to offer the Thermosensitive Ink technology integrated in all Frixion range products.

What is Pilot’s FriXion Family?

Revolutionary! Write, Delete, Repeat as many times as you like… Thermo-sensitive ink technology patented by PILOT offers you a smooth writing experience and most importantly, the possibility to erase any mistakes thanks to its integrated FriXion eraser with no damage to the paper

How do FriXion Family products work?

FriXion ink “erases” due to Pilot’s exclusive thermo-sensitive ink technology. If you need to make corrections on the page, simply “Frixion-It” by rubbing with the FriXion eraser tip as if using a regular pencil eraser.

When rubbing, the ink heats up to over 65°C and becomes invisible. The ink will reappear at temperatures under -12°C. FriXion pens have a special erasing tip which allows the paper to be heated quickly without damaging it.
