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.

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.
