Wicks Unlimited supplies RT2315 hot melt candle glue specially designed to secure and anchor wick clip assemblies to the inside of empty candle containers. RT2315 glue has been successfully tested to withstand the high temperatures at the bottom of the candle’s container during the final burn cycles towards the end of life. This glue’s heat resistance also minimizes the chance of wick sustainer migration, the phenomenon where the wick can slide during end-of-life burn cycles.
The melting point of RT2315 is approximately 320ºF. It features a short open time, enabling candle manufacturers to begin instantaneous liquid wax filling. The softening point of this glue is approximately 290ºF allowing the wick clip assembly to remain safely anchored and centered, even when the burn pool’s temperature is elevated.
RT2315 candle glue is formulated to substantially reduce glue spider webbing during production. With the hot melt glue at the optimal operating temperature and the related machinery at optimal operating temperature(s) (Tank 325ºF, Hose 345ºF, and Nozzle 350ºF), RT2315 glue deposits are precise, repeatable, and clean without the stringing associated with other hot melt glues not designed for candle applications. This candle glue works best in conjunction with glue-depositing machinery featuring zero cavity nozzles.
Wicks Unlimited supplies and ships RT2315 hot melt candle glue in bulk packaging in quantities starting at 50 lbs.
