Zinc & Paper Core Wick

Questions? Contact Us!

Zinc core wick is commonly used in tealights, container candles, votives, floating candles and multi-wick pillar candles. The zinc centre of this wick enables it to stand up by itself. This is necessary in these types of candles as they form a larger pool of melted wax, and a cotton wick would simply fall over and ‘drown’. A wick tab must be attached to the bottom end of the wick so that it will stand up by itself. In regards to recent concerns about lead in candle wicks, our wick manufacturer has provided us with information stating that "the Consumer Product Safety Commission defines a lead core wick to be one containing greater than 0.06% lead". Zinc Core wick "has a maximum level of lead impurities of 0.004%, well below the standard". An easy way to tell the difference between zinc core and lead core wicks is to cut a piece of wick off and remove the wire. Rub the wire across a sheet of paper. Lead wire will ‘write’ like a pencil, while the zinc wire will not.
