Note: American Candles Supplies wicks are made specifically for us using a NATURAL wax coating instead of paraffin wax.Wick Guide – Stabilo KST (Formerly CD/CDN) – CLICK HERE
- Formerly known as CD and CDN wicks respectively, the Stabilo and Stabilo KST wicks are coreless, non-directional, flat braided cotton wicks with a special paper filament woven around them. This configuration is engineered to promote maximum and consistent capillary action while ensuring a wick trimming flame posture. The Stabilo series is used in many different applications and is especially compatible with the harder-to-melt viscous vegetable based waxes.
- The Stabilo KST series of wick is identical to the Stabilo series except that it is designed specifically to be more acid resistant which can be important when dealing with natural waxes and fragrances. They are free of all metals (i.e. tin, zinc and lead). Stabilo wicks are pre-tabbed and pre-coated for rigidity and are cut to 6 inch length.
This also greatly reduces carbon build-up mushrooming as well as soot and smoke emissions. Like the HTP and STABILO series, the LX wicks can be used with most types of waxes: paraffin wax blends, vegetable waxes and candle Gel, and that in most applications, like molded pillars, votives and container candles. Like the two aforementioned series, when used with high viscosity vegetable waxes like soy wax or rapeseed wax, you will probably have to wick up one, two of three sizes.
