Performa™ Wick

Performa Wick is a high-performance curling wick with an exceptional stalk height (amount of wick above wax).  These features promote a more symmetrical wax pool and a self-trimming posture.  Its re-enforced design provides increased rigidity in the wax pool.  It is also known to draw some of the harder-to-burn beeswax and viscous waxes.  Performa Wick is an excellent choice for several applications such as tapers, pillars, medium and large containers.  This wick is constructed of 100% natural based fibers.


  • Designed to promote a more symmetrical wax pool and self-trimming posture.

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.
