Engineered by braiding two Aroma-lite® wicks, it was developed to burn in sometimes difficult candle systems with high levels of fragrance. Helix™ came along to aid in mostly vegetable wax formulations. It can be difficult as a one wick system to achieve large wax pools, however this problem is overcome with the braiding of two wicks together. Reinforced with a paper core the product has a style and performance different than any other wick on the market.
We offer this wick series in pre-waxed, cut, and tabbed assemblies to allow you to test a variety of 10 sizes included in our Helix™ Wick Sample Kit. Visit the link below to purchase your samples and create your perfect candle solution today!

The rate chart is provided by Atkins & Pearce merely as an additional tool to assist the customer in making an appropriate wick selection. This is only provided to serve as suggestions of wicks that may be appropriate based upon certain criteria and should not be relied upon as determinative or as a substitute for customer testing.
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 provided. 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.
As the customer, you and your company are responsible for appropriately testing all Atkins & Pearce wicks in your candle formulations and for making the final wick selection based upon meeting appropriate candle safety and burn standards.
