Classic Wick


Atkins & Pearce Classic Wick, also referred to as flat, regular or ply, is commonly used in tapers and pillars. This wick provides a slight curl when burning, which helps reduce carbon build-up throughout the life of the candle system. The main applications are dipped and extruded candles. Various chemical treatments can be used to enhance the burn qualities of these 100% natural wicks.

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. Aktins & 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 the 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.
