Atkins & Pearce Candle Wick
Cotton Core Wick
Constructed from 100% natural fibers, Cotton Core™ Wick by Atkins & Pearce is often used in votives, pillars, and containers. A cotton outer braid surrounds an inner filament of cotton, increasing rigidity in the molten wax pool. Cotton Core™ Wick is to help reduce carbon build-up during the burn cycle.
Paper Core Wick
The Paper Core™ Wick series features a cotton outer braid surrounding the inner filament of papers. These wicks are commonly used in votives, pillars, and containers and constructed with 100% natural fibers. The Paper Core™ Wick produces a less aggressive flame than the cotton core wick but offers more rigidity.
Zinc Core Wick
Zinc Core™ Wick is a unique formulation that works in various candle applications, including votives, pillars, and containers. These wicks offer the most rigidity of all cored wicks in the molten wax pool.
HTP™ Wick features a blend of high-performance fibers and natural materials to form a flat braid. These high-performance fibers provide additional structural strength, controlled curling, and a hotter, more efficient flame. The HTP™ Wick is an excellent alternative in hard-to-burn applications, such as paraffin and vegetable candles that require hotter burn conditions.
Aroma-Lite™ Wick features a blend of all-natural cellulose braided textiles that help reduce and inhibit carbon heading and burn in candles with high fragrance levels. This blend of all-natural braided textiles is designed especially for those tough-to-burn container and pillar systems.
Constructed with 100% natural fibers, the Performa™ Wick promotes a more symmetrical wax pool and self-trimming posture. Its reinforced design provides increased rigidity in the wax pool, perfect for those tough-to-burn beeswaxes and viscous waxes. The Performa™ Wick is appropriate for applications such as tapers, pillars, beeswax, viscous waxes, and medium to large containers.
Ply wick has a decorative appearance and is commonly used in dipped or molded self-supporting candles, such as tapers and pillars. Designed to provide a slight bend when burned, this wick allows for an even burn and reduces carbon formation at the wick’s tip.
Square Braided Wicks
Square Braided™ Wick is a unique formulation that works in various candle applications, including tealights, votives, pillars, and containers. The wicks curl while burning, thus minimizing carbon build-up. Its open construction and chemical treatment process make it an excellent choice for waxes that are highly viscous when melted, like beeswax and vegetable wax.
Helix™ Wick is Atkin & Pearce’s newest candlewick and is constructed by braiding two Aroma-lite™ wicks. Engineered for candle systems with a high level of fragrance, this wick is used mostly in vegetable wax formulations. The Helix™ wick is reinforced with a paper core and helps to achieve a large wax pool in some candles.
