Pigma Pens - Will the Ink Freeze

Hello,

I recently placed an order for some pigma pens. It is currently quite cold here - 15-40 degrees Fahrenheit (-9 - 5 degrees Celsius). Will the ink in the pens be ok? Are they likely to freeze? Will they still be usable if they do?

Thanks so much for any reply.

Re: Pigma Pens - Will the Ink Freeze

Hello,

There are no guarantees, but previous experience has shown that the Pigma Micron pens perform the same as if the pen were not exposed to extremely low temperatures.

The best method is to let the pen thaw-out to normal room temperature over a long period of time before using.

DO NOT heat the pen artificially – and definitely DO NOT microwave the pen!
DO NOT shake the pen either.

Many people have left their pens in their automobiles overnight, in the extremely cold upper central northern states and they have told us that the pens work fine once they return to room temperature.

The cold temperature should not affect the ink performance.

Thanks so much for your reply! Would freezing affect ink characteristics such as lightfastness and permanence?
