    51-32-18 Zinc Core 6” Pre-Tabbed Wick

    51-32-18 zinc core wicks are cotton braid with an inner zinc core. They are suitable to be used in tealight, votive, pillar, and container candles. The zinc core structure provides maximum rigidity and strength to keep the wick straight in melted wax. The potential for mushrooming resulting from carbon buildup can be minimized by using the proper wick size and keeping the wick trimmed. Zinc core wicks are cooler burning and generally recommended for use in paraffin wax.

    Our zinc zore wicks are:

    • primed with a standard wax coating
    • 6" in length
    • pre-tabbed in a 20mm X 6mm tab

    The 51-32-18 zinc core wick may be suitable for:

    • medium (2-3") container candles
    • large (3-4") pillar and container candles

    Note: We recommend testing new wick sizes when making any modifications to existing candle recipes or making new candles. Burning characteristics can be altered by changes in wax, fragrance oil, dye, and/or additives, which could result in a different optimal wick size for the same diameter candle.

    1. Excellent! 5 Star Review

      I was pretty lucky right out of the gate. I tested these wicks first and they are great. I love that there is no soot, very little mushrooming and I have never had a problem with clogging or anything else. I use these exclusively.

      After testing other wicks, I finally decided to give zinc wicks a try. Works great in my parasoy blend!

      I like this wick better than CD 10. Less mushrooming and stands very straight and strong.
