Atkins & Pearce Ply Wicks

Ply wick has a decorative appearance and is commonly used in dipped or molded self-supporting candles, such as tapers and pillars. This wick is designed to provide a slight bend when burned, which allows for an even burn and a reduction of carbon formation at the wick’s tip.

Glossary of terms

Yield
Measured in yards of wick per pound in weight. The higher the yield, the smaller the wick and the flame and the resulting heat generated.
ROC
The rate of wax consumption in ounces by the wick in one hour. The higher the burn rate the more wax which is being consumed. Used to determine how well a wick and wax combination is performing.
