Wick Testing Coco Soy / EC26 Wax & HTP Wicks

I'm currently testing Coco Soy / EC26 candle wax with HTP candle wicks

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 62 (double wick), HTP 83 (single wick), HTP 93 (single wick), and HTP 104 (single wick).  I'm using our Cashmere fragrance oil at 9% fragrance load.  I'm curious about HTP wicks because they burn hotter than other wicks, ie Premier, LX, and Zinc.  Coconut wax is a softer wax, but EC26 is blended with soy, so we will see. 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.
