New RIGID CURL Wicks are made right here in the USA and are a 100% natural option for your container candles. Rigid Curl Candle wicks offers the rigidity of Ultra Core wicks but are self trimming This product line gives candle makers their independence from using zinc core wicks. Rigid Curl is an all fiber wick.
The fibers used to construct Rigid Curl Wicks provide a incredible burn in ALL waxes! They have been tested in soy, paraffin, coconut, palm, beeswax, candle gel and many hybrid blends, and the Ultra-Cores did not disappoint! One wick that works in any wax has finally arrived.
Rigid Curl is a candlewick for today’s extreme demands. It allows you to pass extended safety test requirements; without sacrificing the performance of your candles under normal burn conditions.
The core is a specially treated fiber that burns and curls then self trims.
The wick stays straight during the candle fill, and more importantly during the burn. This wick is an excellent choice for container candles.
The Ultra-Core unique knitted patented design allows the wax to flow through the fibers easier to fuel your flame, and improves your melt pool, resulting in a much better burning candle. A better performing melt pool means less tunneling, and a better hot throw for your scents. Rigid Curl wicks burn with a shorter, hotter flame, which means little or no soot and self trims when flame gets too hot.

. The sizing system of Rigid Curl wicks is easy to understand. The wick number (1.45, 1.651, 1.792, 2.0, etc.) represents the melt pool diameter of your candle after 2 hours of burning in a 140-degree paraffin wax.
This size is a starting point for your wick selection and adjustments may need to be made depending on the wax used, fragrance, color, additives etc.
ALWAYS TEST BURN YOUR CANDLES but here are some recommendations based on our testing. -Trim your wicks to ¼ inch or less. -Palm wax and low melt point paraffins burn very easy - size down accordingly -Size up for beeswax candles.
