About Length of 2.5 x 1/8 inch (65mm x 3.2mm) Kevlar ® Wick
Our fire wick is based around the durable Kevlar ® organic (para-aramid) fiber, enhanced with our unique blend of non-irritant clothing grade fiberglass yarn.
The continuous filament fiber we use is about as good as it gets when balancing absorbency, strength, durability, fire rating, and user comfort.

It gets made into our commercial grade, high absorbency, flameproof textile, with increased absorbency and all wefts (horizontal threads) doubling back on themselves for greater durability (especially in edge wear/fraying).
The weave pattern and tension has been carefully controlled to balance the opposing properties of strength and soak-ability.
The result is a maximum capillary effect for fuel soakage and transfers out to the flame while still ensuring excellent flame and abrasion resistance and overall strength.
It is also lightweight and has excellent flexibility, aesthetic design, and non-stretch characteristics.

Rest assured our wick does not contain any asbestos (often used in fireproofing), which is known for causing cancer when inhaled.
Neither does it contain any sharp or skin burning metallic thread.
Metallic threads are sometimes added to give a sense of strength and durability, but we have found the thin metal fibers become brittle with the heat and break to create a hazard to users – especially if performing wraps or fire eating.

Yes, you could buy cheaper.
However, more fire performers prefer our fire wick for its added performance-based features and their safety.
We believe this wick to be the top choice for fire performers, and since we manufacture in bulk, we can pass on this high-quality wick at an affordable price.

We keep several tons in stock and supply many other respectable fire tool manufacturers throughout the world.
We are continually testing alternative "mixes" and will always aim to bring you the best possible wick for your performance needs.

Also available as a 30m Kevlar Wick Roll
  • 2.5inch wide x 1/8 inch thick Kevlar webbing.
  • Long life Kevlar ® coated, fabric grade, glass fiber.
  • Great soakage for longer burns.
  • Fuel capillary action for a more distributed burn.
  • High-temperature resistance 650 deg.
  • Excellent wear resistance.
  • Free fire safety guide, fuel information, how to light and extinguish tools, and tips on use.

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."
