FriXion is Different From Other Erasable Pens

The technology used in FriXion erasable gel ink pens has been in the making for more than 30 years. Vibrant Autumn leaves inspired a Pilot researcher to capture the same dynamic color change in a test tube. A special formulation that would vividly change color at different temperatures was developed. The unique color-changing technology was initially used to create children's toys. Several years later, another Pilot researcher modified the formulation to create disappearing ink—and FriXion erasable gel ink pens were born!

These highlighters are great, but there are some things to be aware of.

First, if you erase the highlighting, make sure the ink is dry first, otherwise you risk scuffing the paper. With certain papers, the erasing mechanism can leave some marks or smudge the ink, but I've only had this happen with documents which were printed using an inkjet printer.

Second, the ink is a thermal ink. An issue with this is that your highlighting could disappear if your documents are left in a hot enough place, such a car, on a summer day.
An implication of this though, is if you want to erase large amounts of highlighting, you can quickly pass a standard clothing iron over the paper. Keep the iron on the lowest setting and make sure there is no water in the iron, because obviously, steam is not good for paper. This could be useful for students who rent or borrow textbooks since they'll now be able to highlight and erase everything later.

Third, when you erase your highlighting, the ink is not permanently gone. While it will be nearly invisible to the eye, the ink is still on the paper and can be reactivated by extremely cold temperatures. Try it. Highlight a document, erase it and then put it in a freezer. The highlighting will re-appear, though the ink will not appear as bright as before.

Because of the above, I would caution against using these on any documents where a permanent mark is required, but for most highlighting, these are amazing!

One last thing, pilot does make green and blue frixion highlighters as well. I was able to find a 5-pack (yellow, blue, green, pink and orange) at Targe.t.

Not everyone can imagine why they'd want to erase highlighting, but different people use highlighters for different reasons. I often use them for color-coding, and sometimes I discover that I need to reclassify something to a different color. The dry textliners from Faber-Castell (sort of crayony/pencilly type things) aren't too bad and they are somewhat erasable, but they're difficult to find in stores; right now, these Frixion highlighters are everywhere.

The good:

- As others have noted, it doesn't bleed through. Not at all.
- You really can "erase" it, sort of (see below).
- You can restore the erased marks (see below).

The bad:

- Some inks/toners seem to fade underneath the highlighter ink, and the fading doesn't go away when you erase.

- That's at least partly because erasure doesn't totally remove the highlighter ink (see below) and the remaining ink is still covering what's underneath.

- Erasure results depend very much on the type of paper and ink you've highlighted. Some inks will smear (and obviously you'll have a problem if you try to erase highlighting over pencil), and Some papers accept erasure better than others. It is worthwhile to experiment with different types of erasers, but again, different erasers will give different results with different inks and papers.

- The ink itself (at least the yellow ink) isn't very bright. This is bad if you want just a few specific things to really stand out at a glance and don't care about anything else on the page. But it is actually great if you still need to be able to read the rest of the page without being distracted by eye-stabbing blobs of fluorescent color.

I was thrilled with the idea of erasable highlighters. Others have suggested they're great for those of us who want to resell our books. However, the highlighted parts don't always fully erase (I was still fine with that) but more importantly, they run out of ink quickly. To test it out, I used the yellow highlighter while reading a normal novel size book (it was the history of a country) and though I only highlighted about 2 lines on each page, it ran out of ink by the 100th page and I had to switch to the orange. Additionally, the yellow highlighter isn't quite as bright as the normal fluorescent yellow highlighters, which was fine, but I noticed that the ink sits on top of the ink and page rather than being absorbed into it. Though it's minor, due to the ink siting atop the print, the ink slightly dilutes the intensity of black type. Overall I was satisfied but I think the formula needs to be tweaked so that the highlighter lasts more than 200 lines. I've had "normal" highlighters that seemingly never ran out of ink. I hate dry things so it was distracting to use the yellow one as it ran out of ink and having to scrape it across the page to get a color out of it. To be fair, the highlighters were great and nicely intense fresh out of the package.

There are two types of eraseable highlighters, and which you want depends on your style of using highlighters.

These are highlighters with ink that erases using a clear disappearing ink on the other end. Note that this set has a grip, which is removeable and makes the barrel just like the regular Crayola eraseable highlighter. It's great for cleaning up a book after you're done reading it, or to correct mistakenly highlighted text. The yellow is a very nice neon bright but not too dark at all.

PROS OF CRAYOLA Erasable Highlighter: Has 2 inks: one for highlighting, one for writing over it to erase the highlighter. This means no rubbing, so no rubbed text or damaged pages. Great ink that is a bright neon yellow. Marker lasts a very long time. Doesn't bleed through easily like some highlighters (you really have to hold the tip on the same spot for a long time to make it bleed through). The Crayola ones erase COMPLETELY, unless you have very porous paper which soaked it through then you need to let the magic ink soak through a little too. Cheaper brands sometimes do not erase completely, especially any color other than yellow.

CONS OF CRAYOLA Erasable Highlighter: When you use the erasing ink somewhere on a page, you can't re-highlight that part of the page with this highlighter because the eraser ink just keeps erasing the new ink that goes on top of it. Not sure if this wears off after a while, I've never tested it. Inn the rare instance this comes up, I will just grab a regular highlighter to do it real quick on top, because regular highlighters aren't affected by the erasing ink. DUH. Also, they are longer than normal highlighters due to space for erasing ink on opposite tip.
