Delivery Info

Fil-Tec Rigid Curl Candle Wicks

We carry 9 sizes of Rigid Curl Wicks!

Rigid, all-fiber wicks with a knitted construction. Rigid Curl wicks stay straight while pouring. While burning, they are designed to curl, which results in a self-trimming wick.

Because Rigid Curl wicks are self-trimming, they maintain a safe flame height during extended burns. This makes Rigid Curl wicks an ideal choice for candles that may be burned for long periods of time.

  • Made in the USA.
  • Designed to stay straight in your wax as you pour.
  • Self-trimming feature reduces soot and carbon buildup.
  • Great for single-wick and multi-wick candles.
  • Clean burning paraffin wax coating.
  • Performs well in all wax types - including coconut, soy, beeswax, paraffin and other blends.
  • Suitable for container candles and votives.

Length: 6"

Tab size: 20mm round base with a 6mm neck that helps stabilize the wick.

Lead and zinc free.
