ACS 5.5 Cotton Wick (150mm)
ACS series wicks are a flat braided candle wick made from textile-grade cotton and are developed to work best in natural waxes, especially soy wax. These wicks tend to burn cleanly and can be less prone mushrooming (subject to testing and fine tuning). ACS wicks are all natural and are Zinc and Lead free.
Material: 100% Textile grade cotton
Glossary of wick specifications
Diameter Guide: This is a suggestion for the diameter of the glass jar, tin, bowl, or whatever type container you might use this wick for. Always measure the internal diameter (across the inside of the container) at the widest point.
Height: Our candle wicks are generally sold in two lengths/heights, 150mm and 300mm. The height of a wick is not as important as the thickness so long as the wick is high enough to rise at least one centimeter above the top of the finished candle, if your jar/candle is over 150mm high then you’ll need a 300mm wick.
Pre-tabbed: Each wick comes with a metal tab (sometimes called a sustainer) for attaching the wick the wick to the jar. the tab also acts as a safety device as it stops the candle from burning all the way to the bottom of the jar. Tabs tend to be 30mm in diameter and between 3mm and 6mm high.
Pre-coated: All wicks are pre-coated with food grade wax to help with initial lighting of the candle.
