HTP-105 known as high-tension paper wicks with paper core wick that is rigid and designed to bend at the tip when burning with less carbon buildup.
This ready-to-use pre-waxed wicks are suitable for large containers and pillar candles.
HTP wick is primed with high melt point wax and come in 8 inches (15.24cm) length with 20mm base x 3mm neck.
HTP wick recommended application for pillar and large container diameter is 4.0″ – 4.5″ (10.16cm – 11.43cm)
HTP is a wick designed to provide the benefits of a self-trimming wick posture with rigidity found in cored wick. This rigidity is due to a specialty yarn fiber that is incorporated into the construction of the braid.
This specialty yarn, which is 100% natural fibers increases the burn temperature, which results in less carbon buildup (Mushrooming).
This is a good all around wick for paraffin, gel and soy wax, palm wax and beeswax that require hotter burning applications.
How to use the wick
- To use wick, place it at the center of the candle mold or container and glue it using a glue gun or by using soft rubber adhesive tack. E6000 be great for a permanent bond.
- You can keep the wick upright with a bow tie clip.
- Once wick is in place, gently pour hot melted wax into the mold and leave candle to set overnight.
How a candle burns depends on may factors such as the type of wick, the size of wick, the amount and type of dyes used, the amount and type of fragrance/essential oils used. So it is recommended for you to do a small test batch first.
