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.
