CDN 3 Tealight Wick (28mm)
The CDN 3 Tealight wick by Heinz Verhaegh are one of the best in the industry and feature a paper braid style designed to ‘self trim’ by bending at the tip while burning. The CDN series of candle wicks are made from pure cotton with a paper core and a paper braid running through the wick which helps to deliver a more complete combustion and a cleaner burn. The paper braid is is what gives the wick its light brown color. Perfect for use in natural waxes including soy, beeswax and palm wax. CDN wicks are all natural and are Zinc and Lead free.
Material: Pure cotton with paper braid
This wick is suitable for our poly-carbonate tealight cups as well as our aluminium 5 hour tealight cups.
You do not need a Wick Stickum for tealights, simply drop the wick into the cup after you have poured the wax.
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: Tealight wicks are generally sold in two lengths/heights, 28mm and 33mm. The height of a wick is not as important as the thickness but note that a 28mm wick will be too short for the taller aluminium tealight cups.
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 are 15mm in diameter and between 3mm high.
Pre-coated: All wicks are pre-coated with food grade wax to help with initial lighting of the candle.
