LX wicks have a unique flat braid that minimises carbon buildup. These wicks have a round tin base with a neck and are wax-coated which helps keep the entire wick assembly standing upright and prevents it from flopping over as the candle burns down to the end. The LX wick is coreless which helps reduce carbon buildup and prevent 'mushrooming'. It is manufactured with stabilising threads which produce a more consisent burn which keeps the heat in the center of the candle, helping to insure that glass containers don't overheat on one side, while wax remains unmelted on the other and pillar candles don't 'tunnel' or have an uneven melt causing wax to leak out and spill.
Please use the sizing table below as a basic guideline but please remember you will always need to do your own testing as results will vary depening on type of wax used, fragrance, colour, etc.
