Platinum's famous permanent waterproof ink. Platinum Carbon Ink is pigmented ink suitable for fountain pens - for documents, drawings (including line and wash) and general-purpose use. However, this ink does have the potential to damage pens if not used according to instructions. This ink can dry and clog fountain pen feeds if left too long as it contains ultra-fine carbon particles. It is only suitable for pens that are in daily use and if the pen is to be left more than a couple of days without use then we advise flushing the pen and converter.
Now available in red, blue and sepia - see Platinum Pigment Ink.
IMPORTANT NOTE: We will not accept liability for damage to fountain pens arising from use of this ink. We do not recommend its use in vintage, valuable or sentimentally-valuable pens! This ink should only be purchased by expert users who understand the risks associated with using it. By ordering this item you confirm that you have read and understood this.
The following is copied directly from Platinum and contains important information about using this ink.
Carbon Ink uses pigmented ink in order to improve the water-resisting property, light stability and heat-resisting properties while normal Black/Blue Black ink is water-based with dyes.That is why the carbon ink is suitable for important documents such as official documents which need to be stored for a long time. Some people use the carbon ink to draw a rough design for a picture painted in watercolors or colored inks because carbon ink is run-proof.
You should be careful, however, to deal with carbon ink in your fountain pen.
Ultrafine particle carbon powder was included in the ink.
Comparing to the ink water-based with dyes, it tends to be stopped up because particles are coarse. If you use your fountain pen with the carbon ink everyday, there may not come problems but in case you have long period to use the fountain pen, it will be clogged.
It causes serious problem because it is not easy to clean the pen clogged with the ink and dried up.Here are some tips about using carbon ink in your fountain pen.
(1) Please pull out the ink cartridge/converter you are using and clean the nib completely before you use the carbon ink.
(2) If you do not use the fountain pen in carbon ink for more than one week, please pull out the ink and wash the ink converter thoroughly.We recommend this carbon ink especially to the heavy users who love to write and write. The more you write, the better its performance will be.
Caution ! Please note ink in clothing /hand cannot be washed away easily. Be careful !
