Candlewic offers eight different tabs that are available on our wick clip assemblies. Our wick sustainers are made of tin coated steel. This tin coating helps prevent rusting and stops possible corrosion caused by the heavier fragrances. In the past the wick tab was overlooked and just thought of as an insignificant part of the candle, today the clip is considered much more. Tabs with the extended neck are essential for safety in a gel candle. The longer neck length enables the flame to be extinguished before it reaches the bottom of the containers. This is a safety precaution that eliminates the risk of flare up, this is also used in paraffin based candles to ensure the safety. Candlewic was the first company in the US to offer the self-centering tab. The self-centering votive tab is designed to be self-centering in 15 hour votive cups and will save countless hours in production.

Candlewic carries two basic wick coatings in addition to a specialty beeswax coating to offer you solutions for all of your applications. The wick’s maximum rigidity during production and burning of the wick.

High Melt Point (Standard)
This wick coating wax is for standard hot pour processes in votive, container and tea light applications. Designed to offer maximum rigidity during production and burning of the wick.
Melt Point 184°F

Super High Melt Point
Specifically formulated wick primer wax designed to maintain the integrity of the wick during elevated pouring temperatures. Beneficial when pouring gel candles. The high melt point prevents the coating from melting and prevents additional air.
Melt Point 212°F

Unique in the market, beeswax offers a flexible and durable coating for the wick. Ideal for candle makers who are producing 100% natural/renewable candles.
Melt Point 150°F
