60-44-18 Zinc Core 6” Pre-Tabbed Wick
60-44-18 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 60-44-18 zinc core wick may be suitable for:
- 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.

what can ya say about a wick? I like the zinc core because it makes it easy when pouring. I dislike the zinc core because it tends to cause mushrooming. Other than that, the wicks performed as promised.
