How gel pens offer a comfortable and precise writing experience

The gel pens are some of the most widely used forms of pens in the world. They are extensively used by students and artists. Gel pens are also quite easy to write to and produce flawless lines. Let’s have a look at some of the features that make gel pens different from others.

Gel pen pigments

The tinctures that are primarily used in the gel pens include iron oxides and copper phthalocyanine. The pigments are combined with biopolymers (like tragacanth gum and xanthan gum)and water as well as with some traces of polyacrylate thickeners. The gel produced in this way is much thick compared to traditional ink which in turn produces a strong color. The pigments that are mixed are typically of pastel and bright colors. However, metallic, opalescent and glittery shades are also sometimes created and they can be easily used on various darker surfaces.
