HTP 83 flat wick is recommended use with 3″ to 3-1/2″ molded soy pillars and container candles.
The HTP wicks are designed to provide the benefits of a self-trimming wick posture with rigidity approaching those found in cored wicks. High-performance fibers, along with other natural materials are engineered into a specially constructed braid, producing a more predictable wick posture. HTP wick is especially well-suited for tough-to-burn formulations that may contain many candle additives. We offer these wicks in a variety of sizes. Many variables, such as wax, fragrance, dyes, and additives, can play a part in how a wick performs. We strongly recommend testing to determine which wick is the correct option for your candle.

*The best way to determine the right wick for a particular candle is run burn tests.
*All information is approximate and provided for comparison purposes only. Based on a 140℉ melt point pure paraffin candle, an initial wick height of 1/4 inch, and room temperature of approximately 75℉. Results may vary according to formula, type and melt point of wax, initial wick height, and room temperature, among other factors. The best way to determine the right wick for a particular candle is by trial and error testing.
