1. What is the main difference between ballpoint and rollerball pens? Ballpoint pens use a thick oil-based ink that requires more pressure to write, while rollerball pens use a water-based ink that flows more smoothly and requires less pressure. Rollerball pens generally offer a smoother and more fluid writing experience.
2. Can rollerball pen refills be used in ballpoint pens? No, rollerball pen ink and ballpoint pen ink are formulated differently and typically can’t be used interchangeably. Attempting to use the wrong type of ink can result in poor performance or damage to the pen.
3. Are ballpoint pens better for writing? Ballpoint pens use an oil-based ink that dries quickly on paper and is resistant to smudging or smearing, which is ideal if you’re writing a lot. Ballpoint ink is usually available in a variety of colours, making it suitable for various writing tasks.
