Puro Kevlar (100%) Flat Wick
Puro Kevlar Flat wick is imported from Italy, made of 100% pure kevlar without any fiberglass or other fibers. This makes for a stiffer and more durable wick material. The wick is 3mm thick with a herring bone weave, which will not fray or unraval, even after many burns. The lifespan of the wick is greater, and the fuel absorption properties last longer than the less expensive blending Renegade Kevlar wick material. If you would like to build your own fire props and use the highest quality wick, the Puro wick is a good buy if you consider the increased life span. 100% Kevlar makes a difference.
The wick is only sold by the foot and is available in limited quantity. Available in 25mm, 50mm, 70mm, and 100mm widths.

Puro flat wick is well worth the extra cost if you put a lot of use on your props. The regular kevlar wicking from here and other shops is a mix of aramids and glass fibers and it does not hold up well to abrasion and high heat. I have several props that I re-wicked over a year ago with 100+ burns on them, lots of drops, and life in the back of my truck in a pile of other props and they are still not fraying.
