Many variables exist in candle wax types, additives, and formulations for individual candle systems. Zinc Core Wicks made by Atkins & Pearce are not lead alloys, they are zinc. According to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, a lead-cored wick is defined as a wick containing a metal core with greater than 0.06% lead weight in the metal. Atkins & Pearce Zinc Core Wicks have a maximum lead content of 0.004%, which is well below the US Consumer Product Safety Commission’s standard 16CFR 1500.17 (a) (13). 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.
