New Ultra-Core Wicks are made in the USA and are a 100% natural option for your container candles. The fibers used to construct Ultra-Core Wicks provide an incredible burn in all of the waxes! We tested soy, paraffin, coconut, palm, beeswax, candle gel and many hybrid blends and the Ultra-Cores did not fail! We kept testing different variations because we couldn’t believe it that finally, one wick burns everything!
The Ultra-Core unique knitted patented design allows the wax to flow through the fibers easier to fuel your flame and improve your melt pool resulting in a much better burning candle. Improved meltpools mean less tunneling and your hot fragrance throw will be stronger too. Ultra-core wicks burn with a shorter, hotter flame which means little or no soot and smaller mushrooms.
The core in the middle keeps your wick straight, which not only makes candle production much easier, the Ultra-core will not curl, sag or bend as the candle burns.
The sizing system of Ultra-Core wicks is easy to understand too. The wick number (1.45, 1.651, 1.792, 2.0, etc.) represents the melt pool diameter after 2 hours of burning in a 140-degree paraffin wax.
This size is a starting point for your wick selection and adjustments may need to be made depending on the wax used, fragrance, color, additives etc.
Why we LOVE Ultra-Core Wicks:
-Made in the USA -Burns in all waxes - no need for multiple type wicks for each wax
-Improved melt pools = stronger hot fragrance throw
-Little or no soot
-Wicks stay straight in the jar - no wick sag!
-Shorter flames are safer in containers
-No tunneling - candles burn to the edge of the container
-No curl & smaller mushrooms -Great for Multi-wick candles -Sizing is easier to understand
ALWAYS TEST BURN YOUR CANDLES but here are some recommendations based on our testing.
-Trim your wicks to ¼ inch or less.
-Palm wax and low melt point paraffins burn very easy - size down accordingly
-Size up for beeswax candles.
