Wick Information

Candle Wicking Information

We offer a variety of wick types, they include: Cotton Core, Paper Core, HTP Coreless, RRD Cotton Core, LX Coreless, ECO Coreless and CD Coreless.

Cotton and Paper Core Wicks: A cotton outer braid surrounds an inner core of cotton or paper. Commonly used in many types of candles. They are constructed with 100% natural fibers. The cotton core produces the hottest flame and the paper core produces a cooler flame than the cotton core but offers more rigidity.

HTP Coreless Wicks: The HTP wick is flat braided in design, but with thin paper fibers intertwined. The result is a cleaner burning, self-trimming wick with additional structural strength, controlled curling and a hotter, more efficient flame. HTP wick is an excellent alternative in hard to burn applications and is a good all around choice for paraffin, gel and vegetable candles that require hotter burn conditions.

RRD Cotton Cored Wicks: This is a round wick with a uniquely braided cotton core designed with tension threads that give the wick a slight, but effective, curl during combustion. The wick is directional in that capillary action flows more freely in one direction. Due to their intricate design, the RRD series provides a centered burn pool, self-trimming burn characteristics and a consistently high rate of fuel flow. These wicks work well with viscous fuels such as vegetable wax, gels and one pours. These wicks are very effective in making container candles.

ECO Coreless Wicks: The ECO wick is a flat, coreless, cotton wick with thin paper filaments interwoven for burn stability. The specially treated paper threads provide a controlled curling of the wick making the ECO series self-trimming, which results in minimized mushrooming, soot and smoke. ECO wick are particularly successful in lower melt-point vegetable and paraffin waxes.

LX Coreless Wicks: The LX wick is a uniquely braided, Coreless, flat wick manufactured with stabilizing threads that ensure an optimum burn profile. This allows for a very stable and consistent flame, which minimizes, or eliminates, mushrooming while reducing afterglow, smoke and soot. The LX series of wicks is designed to improve the burning of paraffin and vegetable waxes in containers.

CD Coreless Wicks: The CD wick is a Coreless, non-directional, flat braided wick with a special Paper filament woven around it. This configuration is engineered to promote maximum and consistent capillary action while insuring a wick trimming flame posture. The CD series is used in many different applications and is especially compatible with the harder to melt viscous waxes of both paraffin and vegetable base.

Burn Rate: Is the rate of wax consumption in ounces in one hour by the wick. The higher the burn rates the more wax which is being consumed. Used to determine how well a wick and wax combination is performing.

Make sure when ordering wicks that the length of the wick is long enough for your application. The length should be about 1" or longer than your container or mold. After your candle has completely hardened trim your wick to about ??" above the candle surface. If you have a long enough wick left over after removing the excess, then you can reuse the wick by putting your own wick tab on the end. You can find wick tabs in the wick section. Also don't forget to order wick stickers to secure your wick to the bottom of the container, they too can be found in the wick section.
