You may see some variation in the wax coating on the wick due to different coating processes. The variance of the wax coating on the wick has no impact on the burn of the candle.

About the CD Series
CD (Stabilo) wick is a flat braided cotton wick with paper threads woven into the cotton. The reinforced construction of the wick is designed to ensure a consistent burn with higher fragrance loads, especially with softer, more viscous natural waxes. The superior rigidity of CD wick allows the wick to stand up straighter for easier pours and keeps the wick upright in a deep melt pool.

Note: Any carbon buildup should be removed once the wick is extinguished.

CD wicks are lead and zinc free.

For help choosing the right wick for your candle, visit our wick guide.

Conveniently secure your wicks with Wick Stickers (large) or Wick Stickers Pro.

Perfect Wicks for my 9 oz jars.

I have some 9 oz tumbler jars and these are perfect. I tried CD18, but it was too much, definitely much better with CD16. No smoking and burns perfectly.

Love these wicks

I love using these wicks but I must say, I have another bag (2nd time) where I wick my jar, pour my wax and when I go to stabilize the wick to my wick tool, the wick comes away from the metal! It’s so frustrating when you can’t depend on your wick to stay in the metal piece.... as far as the wicks go they work great!

Works Well!

I have run so many tests on CD 10-18 with jars with 3.2" diameter openings and ranging from 9-12 oz. These for some reason always come out on top with a nice even covered melt pool with no soot visible soot coming from the wick after 2 hours. After my maximum of 4 hours there is minimal if no soot on the rim of the jar and the melt pool is perfectly across and about 1/4 inch deep. I use a soy wax that can hold about 10-12% and usually average at 11%. This wick works great for my size and volume jars.

CD 16 Wick

This wick burning well, but leave only one inches pool around. Not what I was hoping for

Hi There! Tunneling, or when the melt pool does not reach the edge of the container by the end of a four-hour burn cycle, can be an indication that the wick is too small for the container. There are several factors that can affect the way a candle burns though and wick size is only one part of the equation. A member of our Support Team has reached out to you via email today so we can better assist. We would be happy to take a look and troubleshoot alongside you!

Did not create a full melt pool

I used an 8oz straight sided jar. A fragrance load of about 6%. After about 3hrs my melt pool did not reach the edge of the rim. Close, but still not where it should be. I previously tested the CD 18s and they were too hot, causing black soot and a out of control flame. So going up a wick doesn't seem like an option. Any suggestions?
