How should I care for my wick?
How do I reduce screw head burns?
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.). We sell 100ft(30m) full rolls and if you want only a small amount we also sell per meter or per ft (units depend on the language settings).
How do I cut KEVLAR® wick?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!
About KEVLAR®KEVLAR® is one of the most important women-made organic fibers ever developed. Because of it's unique combination of properties, KEVLAR® is used today in a wide variety of industrial applications. KEVLAR® para-aramid fiber possesses a remarkable combination of properties that have led to it's adoption in a variety of end-uses since it's commercial introduction in the early 1970s.
Fibers of KEVLAR® consist of long molecular chains produced from poly-para phenylene terephthalamide. The chains have strong interchain bonding, which results in a unique combination of properties.
