KEVLAR® Wick - Flat

By
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 fire wicks smoulder 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 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 also sell some fluffy covers which can fit over some common KEVLAR® Fire Heads.

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.). 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).

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!

Cheerful service, always delivering
"I've been buying equipment from Home of Poi for well over a decade. They offer excellent variety and absolute quality, and their prices are lower than most - to the point that even with shipping charges, I usually save money. My dealings with them have always been cheerful and positive, and I have always gotten what I wanted in a timely manner. There's not much more I can ask for from a vendor."

"I am very happy to buy parts for making fire props from HoP, which is a company far away overseas (they are form New Zealand, I am from Eastern Europe) and which ship goods faster than some of our local companies. It is a pleasure to order from them and I am 100 sure that if anything happens, we will sort it out together with the extremely helpful staff. Thanks again and go conquer the world!"
