HTP candle wicks are manufactured by Atkins & Pearce, and are designed to provide the benefits of a self-trimming wick posture with rigidity approaching those found in cored wicks. High-performance fibers, along with other natural materials are engineered into a specially constructed braid, producing a more predictable wick posture. HTP wick is especially well-suited for tough to burn formulations that may contain many additives such as fragrance and colour. Sometimes referred to as a high-tension paper wick, the HTP wick is made of natural fibers, result is a cleaner burning, self-trimming wick with additional structural strength, controlled curling and a hotter, more efficient flame.  It is suitable for Soy, Paraffin, Natural Wax and Gel Candles.

Please note wick information we provide is only to give a guiding starting point for your candle making and is based on our own experiences using a variety of containers, pillar molds, dyes, fragrances and waxes. Individual testing is recommended as style of container or mold, the type or manufacturer of wax, plus the addition and amount of candle dye and fragrance can alter the wick size required.  Always test before making large quantities to determine perfect size wick for your application.

Which Wick? Choosing the correct type and size wick is one of the most important steps to a great burning candle. While we give wicking suggestions, there are many variables, such as wax type, fragrance level, dye and style of container that can affect how a candle burns. In the case of some larger diameter candles, one wick may not be enough and multiple wicks are required for the candle to burn optimally. We recommend that you always TEST, TEST, TEST before manufacturing several to ensure you have chosen the correct wick for your candle. For accurate test results, start your test burn 12-24 hours after pouring and burn your candle for 3 - 4 hours at a time, allowing the wax to fully harden between burns, re-trimming your wick to the appropriate length before re-lighting.
