Waxed Wick on Reels

Wicks Unlimited’s pre-waxed wick on reels is the perfect wick solution for “in-line” cut, tab, and glue candle manufacturing machinery. Our proprietary waxing process saturates the wick to its core by gently forcing the air out of the raw wick, enabling it to burn in a more uniform, consistent, and predictable manner. Wicks Unlimited’s waxing process also makes the wick stronger and easier to work with during production. With over 400 different candle wicks to choose from, Wicks Unlimited’s pre-waxed wick on reels feature minimal ends ensuring your production runs smoothly and efficiently every time.
