Single Ply wooden wicks
We recommend our single-ply wooden wicks to be used with paraffin waxes. Paraffin waxes form less viscous melt pools than plant waxes, so a single-ply wooden wick is normally sufficient. Single-ply wooden wicks can be doubled up by clipping two wicks together for use with plant waxes. However, if doubling-up is required, an easier option is to use a booster wick. We can only recommend testing to ensure you`re happy with the finished product.
Our booster wicks are suited for plant waxes. Plant waxes tend to be more viscous than paraffin waxes when melted, so booster wicks are required to give an acceptable burn profile. Booster wicks are a neat and simple alternative to “doubling-up” single wooden wicks. A good starting point for a 20cl jar would be our LA2 or LB1 wick whilst you can start testing our 30cl jar with an LA2 or LB3 wick. We can only recommend testing to ensure you`re happy with the finished product.
Tube wicks are only available in one size. A tube wick can be expected to perform reasonably well in a 30cl glass with RCX wax, although the burn profile will be affected by the fragrance added. If required you`re able to add our thinnest wooden wick to support the burn. Although tube wicks can in principle be used in other candle systems, they will generally give a much higher burn rate and can cause sooting and very deep/hot melt pools. We can only recommend testing to ensure you`re happy with the finished product.
