LX wick is a specially braided flat wick which maintains a slight curl when burning. The curl moves the tip of the wick into the hottest part of the flame, which helps to minimize or eliminate carbon buildup (mushrooming), reduce smoking, and provide a 'self-trimming' effect, which creates a very stable and consistent flame.
LX is a great wick for containers and pillars, since a consistent flame 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.
- Pillars don't 'tunnel', causing wax to leak out and spill.
