A Better Candlewick
Fil-Tec manufactures a full line of candlewick in our plant located in Maryland, in the eastern United States. In 2000, we started the process of designing a better candlewick. Candle makers suggested several objectives for this new wick construction: improved capillary flow, uniform diameter of the wax melt pool and reduced carbon build-up. We believe we have achieved all of our objectives with our new innovative non-braided wick structure. In September of 2003, we received our patent for our new knitted wick design. Fil-Tec’s unique wick structure has a more open construction than other wick. Our candlewick performs well in heavily scented or difficult waxes, as well as straight paraffin wax.
