These types of candle wicks, which differ by the rather large thickness - up to 6.5 mm, are specially designed for the production of wax candles with the diameter of 3 cm.
A candle wick of this type is made by the 1-thread step method. Therefore, you may choose the wick with the thickness of 12, 13, 14 threads and up to the maximum of 35 threads.
Such candles are usually produced with cylindrical shape and in different decorative forms (fruits and of flowers, Easter eggs, fir trees, various animals, angels). There are no limits for master’s imagination and no restrictions in size of decorative forms of wax candles. The reason for that is that, as we have already discussed, wax is more solid than paraffin and it holds the shape well. Wax candles can be produced of any shape and size.
These types of wicks are perfect for such modern popular candles as wax candles. These candles are purely natural (made of beeswax). They have become very popular because they burn longer, disinfect the air and fill it with the pleasant floral and honey aroma.
20*12 and up to 20*35 candle wicks, as well as all other types TWIST ATIK candle wicks, are made of 100% natural cotton yarn.
We chose the best cotton producers for cooperation. We receive the exclusive yarn of the best sorts without any additions of chemical and synthetic yarns and fibers, purified of the natural rests of the cotton stem and normalized to the standard humidity level.
Such qualitative indicators of candle wick in the production of candles are extremely important, since synthetic threads melt in the process of burning and produce toxic black smoke and liquid rests of plastics, which flow down the surface of the candle. It is extremely harmful for human health to inhale the vapors of melted synthetics. In addition, the candle wick with synthetic threads destroys the shape of candle while burning, as the temperature of melting of synthetics is higher than the temperature of melting of paraffin or wax. In this way, the flows of melted synthetic yarns of candle wick flow down the candle and destroy its shape.
The process of purifying of yarn in the production of wicks is very important, as the rests of the natural cotton stem will crackle while burning, melting the candle in one place - exactly where the cotton stem or box started to burn.
The optimal twisting of the yarn (strength, hardness) and normal humidity are extremely important in the process of burning of candle wick.
The production of candles involves the use of candle wicks from thinner and more tightly twisted threads: Nm 20/1 (thickness of one thread is 0.4 mm) or Nm 34/1 (thickness of one thread is 0.25 mm).
In TWIST ATIK candle production the wick is made by single twisting method, which provides the required normal softness and volume of the wick, as well as the absence of excess strength and hardness of the wick. Therefore, during burning process, the thread in the wick does not spin in different directions, and the height of the flame corresponds to the norms for corresponding thickness of the candle. Moreover, the paraffin does not melt and does not flow uncontrollably. Your customers will enjoy the calmness of the candlelight with pleasure.
All TWIST ATIK candle wicks have the certificate of quality and hygienic conclusion of the Chief Sanitary Doctor of Lviv Region.
