Cored candle wick features an outer braid that surrounds an inner core. Wicks Unlimited carries three types of cored candle wick with the following cores: cotton, paper, and zinc. To improve the wick’s rigidity, Wicks Unlimited pre-waxes the candle wick to your specification. This type of candle wick works well in container, votive, and pillar candle systems.
During pouring and burning, the Zinc core wick provides increased wick support since it is the most rigid of all cored wick. This wick type features a filament of zinc running up the wick’s center. Zinc core wick is known for its cool flame profile and its ability to remain upright in the molten wax pool. This wick is typically recommended for use in paraffin wax tealights, votive, pillar, and container candles.
This self-trimming wick is often used in paraffin wax, palm, and soy candles. Since the HP-N is self-trimming this is an option for candles with heavily scented wax blends. Made of 100% cellulose fibers, the long strands of tightly braided cotton help reduce afterglow.
