Article: ParaNatural 51104 Luxury Wax & HTP Wicks

ParaNatural 51104 Luxury Wax & HTP Wicks

I'm currently testing HTP wicks with Coconut Soy Hybrid 51104 Wax by Titan Wax.  I'm hoping that this will be helpful to some when narrowing down which wicks to use.  Feel free to adjust based on your wax/vessel/fragrance oil combo.  I'm using a vessel (Libbey Heavy Rocks Base) that's 3-1/8" inner diameter at the top, so if yours is smaller, you will want to wick down.  It's best to test a couple wick sizes in a few wick series or brands to see what you like the best!  Feel free to reach out to me anytime if you have any questions at all.  I'm here to help.

About HTP Wicks...
The HTP wick is flat braided in design, but with thin paper filaments intertwined. The result is a cleaner-burning, self-trimming wick with additional structural strength, controlled curling, and a hotter, more efficient flame.  Combined with our high melt wax coating, the HTP wick is an excellent alternative in hard to burn application and is a good all-around choice for vegetable wax candles that require hotter burn conditions.

I'm using a 3-1/8" jar and the wicks I'm using are HTP 83, HTP 93, and HTP 104.  I'm using between and 8-9% fragrance load.  I will allow it to cure for 2 weeks before testing them.  I will keep you updated!  The other items I used when testing are the bowtie wick centering bars, and our candle wick trimmers.

If you've found a combination that works for you, please feel free to share your results below.

Vessel Size Wicks Results
Libbey HRB HTP 83 Testing...day 1. Too early to tell. See videos below.  It's been a few days of testing and there's a small amount of soot starting to form along the rim of the vessel. I'm tempted to test one size down (HTP73) and see how that one compares. Jar temp is OK though, but could lower fragrance load as well.
Libbey HRB HTP 93 Testing...day 1. Too early to tell. I have my eye on this one...It's been a few days of testing now and this one along with the HTP 104 may be too much wick for this wax/vessel combo. Vessel is HOT to the touch. See videos below. 
Libbey HRB HTP 104 Testing...day 1. Too early to tell. It's been a few days of testing now.  Jar temp is HOT and the flame is dancing a bit.  Not loving this size.
