STABILO KST WICK

Stabilo KST Wick by Heinz Jansen is often used in tealights, votives, pillars, and containers because it provides increased rigidity and enhances burning properties for natural waxes. The KST Wick series features a flat braided wick with a special paper filament to promote maximum and consistent capillary action while ensuring a wick trimming flame posture. The difference between Stabilo KST Wick and Stabilo Wick is a subtle but vital one. The Stabilo KST curls less while the Stabilo curls more.

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.

Chart Statistics

Chart statistics contributed by Atkins & Pearce. These statistics should be viewed as reasonable estimates for comparison purposes only. Actual results should be determined on an application by application basis. The chart provides only general trends and results may vary depending upon blend, color, fragrance, wax and shape/size of the container.
