KEVLAR® Wick - Flat

By Malcolm Crawshay, Home of Poi
The KEVLAR® wicks we sell are ideal for all types of fire props (Fire Poi, Fire Staff, Fire Fans...). If you look after the wick and keep it pulled tight it can last for years.

However, if you let the kevlar fire wicks smolder by allowing all the fuel to be used up then the KEVLAR® wick will burn away slowly and fall apart. Sunlight also degrades and darkens the color of KEVLAR® wick slowly over time. So it is good to have wick covers when using Fire Props during daylight, it also stops you from getting your daytime clothes dirty from the residues on the wicks. Many people wrap some tin foil over the wicks and then put some colorful socks over that.

We sell 100ft (30m) Kevlar Wick rolls and if you want only a small amount we also sell per meter or per ft (units depend on the language settings).

A lot of people fasten wick onto their props with screws and to stop themselves from getting branded by a hot screw head they stitch a flap of KEVLAR® tape over the screw heads.

Because of how expensive pure KEVLAR® is our wick also contains other aramid fibers and fabric grade fiberglass (not the kind that itches or stabs you - after all at HoP we work with it all day).

Cutting KEVLAR®

KEVLAR® has a very high cut resistance. Which means it will blunt even the most expensive scissors very fast. At HoP we use box cutters or craft knives which have replaceable blades. Do not ever use your mum's favorite dress fabric scissors or you will be in big trouble!

great Wick
"great Wick, im a 48yo twirler with over 25 years experience. This is the Kevlar you want, perfect size and width for self made staffs . One piece of advice double your wick over so theres only one end with cuts and a loop on the other end, place the cut ends to the inside and wrap the Kevlar around.As theres no cut end to the outside you wont get frays your wicks will last twice as long."
