Disclaimer

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).

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.
