São Vitor Zinc Core Wicks

Constructed with an inner zinc core and a lead-free, cotton braid, Zinc Core Wick by São Vitor is often used in tealights, votives, pillars, and containers because it maximizes rigidity in the molten wax pool. Zinc Core Wick’s features are designed to help burn the coolest of all the cored wicks.

Glossary of Terms

Yield

Measured in yards of wick per pound in weight. The higher the yield, the smaller the wick and the flame and the resulting heat generated.

ROC

The rate of wax consumption in ounces by the wick in one hour. The higher the burn rate the more wax which is being consumed. Used to determine how well a wick and wax combination is performing.
