What is the difference between markers and highlighters?
1. Functional difference: Highlighter is a pen tool for marking, and marker pen can not only be used as a marker for writing, but also can be used as a special drawing color pen for drawing.
2. Pigment difference: The highlighter uses a lighter color ink and contains a certain fluorescent agent, which will cause a fluorescent reaction when it encounters ultraviolet rays. There are three types of markers: alcohol-based markers, oil-based markers, and water-based markers. The pigments have certain volatility.
3. Effect difference: marker pen is a kind of marker pen that can cover the text, while the highlighter will not cover the text.
A marker pen is a drawing colored pen for writing or drawing that contains ink and usually has a cap with a soft tip and double tips. The pigments of marker pens are volatile and are used for quick one-time drawing. It is often used in designing items, advertising slogans, poster drawing or other artistic creations. Markers are also divided into water-based and oil-based inks. Water-based inks are similar to colored pens and contain no olein ingredients. Oil-based inks contain olein ingredients, so the taste is more irritating and more volatile.
