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.


Every candle maker is unique in the way they produce their candles. From the type of candle to the wax blend and scent; they are all different.
