Bleached Square™ Wick

Bleached Square Wick was originally designed for beeswax candles.  Today, this wick is used in all types of candle systems.  This unique construction combined with our chemical treatment processes make it an excellent choice for waxes that are highly viscous when molten, like beeswax and vegetable wax.  Bleached Square Wick is engineered to curl while burning, minimizing carbon build-up.  This wick is constructed of 100% natural fibers and is finished with chemical treatments to improve burn qualities.

Features

  • Excellent choice for highly viscous waxes such as beeswax and vegetable wax.
  • Engineered to curl while burning.
  • Constructed of 100% natural fibers and finished with chemical treatments to improve burn qualities.

Disclaimer

The rate charts provided in this catalog are meant to serve only as a guide for our customers to assist them in wick selection. Many variables exist in candle wax types, additives and formulations for individual candle systems. Final wick selection should always be confirmed through the customer's own testing process to determine if a particular wick is the correct choice for a particular candle system. Atkins & Pearce is not responsible for selections made by the customer using any of the reference material contained in this catalog. For optimal burn performance in specific candle systems, we strongly recommend that customers conduct exhaustive burn tests in their own burn lab and consider retaining samples for their future internal reference. The importance of candle testing and data validation cannot be overstated.
