Wicks Unlimited Candle WicksSão Vitor Candle Wicks


At the request of customers looking for additional options in zinc and cotton cored wicks, Wicks
Unlimited partnered with São Vitor in São Paulo, Brazil, to create our own WU line of wicks.

Our Wicks Unlimited wicks have been designed for flawless burn and easy identifiability using fine,
colored threads manufactured inside the wick itself. Exceptional capillary action provides superior
burn, excellent in jars and pillars.

São Vitor Zinc Core Wicks

The São Vitor Zinc wick is a technologically advanced metal core candle wick consisting of a cotton braided jacket surrounding a zinc core. The jacket is made with long strand cotton threads for more efficient capillary action as well as a tight precise braid for more consistent metering of the liquid wax in the changing temperatures and viscosities that are found in container candles.

The zinc wire is a “Special High Grade” metal that has .0016% of PB (lead) by weight which falls well under the .06% guideline set by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. The zinc is tested and certified to conform to the “16 CFR 1500.7 (a)(13)” standard of the CPSC and actually has 37 times less lead content than the acceptable limit specifies.

São Vitor Cotton Core Wicks

The São Vitor Cotton wick is a cored candle wick, braided with long strand washed cotton. It exhibits a slightly curled flame profile in combustion thereby minimizing carbon buildup, while still creating a burn pool concentric with the circumference of the candle.

The tight braiding of this wick helps to achieve a precise and consistent metering of the liquid wax regardless of the changing temperatures and viscosities commonly found in container candles. The WU Cotton series can be used in almost all candle applications and formulations where a concentric burn pool is desired.
