Juggling torches use one 18 inch long flat wick that is 2" X 1/8"

Swinging torches, each torch head uses two peices of 18 inches long 2" X 1/8"

Renegade started using Kevlar Wick in the early 1980's as a replacement for asbestos based wicks, used to produce juggling torches. The wick is not actually 100% Kevlar, we just called it that because Kevlar was a new (high-tech) plastic brand name at the time. The wick is actually a blend of fiberglass and aramid fiber ( Kevlar, Nomex or Twaron are some common brand names of aramid fiber) The quality of the wick is related to the ratio of fiberglass/aramid fiber used to make the thread, and the weave of the thread in the finished products. The more fiber-glass in the thread, the cheaper the manufacturing cost (and lower the quality). The higher the amount of fiber-glass in the wick the heavier (not good for juggling applications) and less absorbent (not good for burn times) it is. Renegade wick uses a time proven aramid/fiber-glass blend and weave which is optimal for fire props.Renegade Flat wick comes in three thickness, 1/16, 1/8 and 1/4 inch thick. In most applications the 1/8 inch thickness is preferred, as you need to use half as much much wick than the 1/16 inch thickness to hold the same amount of fuel. Though in some applications people prefer the thinner material, which is why we sell this thickness.

 

Width 2 inch X 1/8 inch X 18 inch
Temperature rating 650 degrees F
made in USA

When using wicking for juggling, the lower temperature fuels will help
the wick last longer. If you use lamp oil the prop will run much cooler
than if you use white gas.
