Heinz Jansen Technical Braiding wicks are manufactured in Nettetal, Germany. We currently stock the Stabilo, Stabilo KST, and PK series. These wicks bring unique burn characteristics to candle wicks and are an excellent and popular addition to our product lines.
Formerly known as CD and CDN wicks respectively, the Stabilo and Stabilo KST wicks are coreless, non-directional, flat braided wicks with a special paper filament woven around them. This configuration is engineered to promote maximum and consistent capillary action while ensuring a wick trimming flame posture. The Stabilo series is used in many different applications and is especially compatible with the harder-to-melt viscous vegetable based waxes.
The Stabilo KST series of wick is identical to the Stabilo series except that it has been treated with a special patent-pending chemical treatment.
The PK wick is a non-directional paper core wick with a high quality washed cotton braid around it. The PK series of wicks can be used with most waxes and is preferred for container candles which require a rigid cored wick with a concentric burn pool.
