Standard Neck Wick Sustainers

Wicks Unlimited manufacturers and supplies eleven (11) unique standard neck wick sustainers that enable candle manufacturers to create tabbed wicks from waxed wick on reels. Our standard sustainers are manufactured from .010” (0.254 mm) thick tin-coated steel that helps inhibit corrosion and are preferred by leading candle manufacturers worldwide.

This best-selling sustainer series includes neck heights of 3.8 mm and 6.0 mm, with either a 15.0 mm or 20.0 mm base diameter(s) for easy gluing. The sustainer’s neck height and crimp determine the container’s base thermal profile, indicating an aggressive or a conservative system and the remaining amount of wax at the candle’s end of life.
