Kevlar (R) Wick

Kevlar (R) Wick

KEVLAR® Wick - Flat


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!


KEVLAR® is one of the most important woman made organic fibers ever developed. Because of its 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 has led to its adoption in a variety of end-uses since its commercial introduction in the early 1970's.

Fibers of KEVLAR ® consist of long molecular chains produced from poly-paraphenylene terephthalamide. The chains are highly oriented with strong interchain bonding which result in a unique combination of properties

Kevlar tape 50mm x 3.2mm
"Probabily the most universal type of kevlar. You can easily fold it, even though it is 3.2mm. 50mm width is perfect for poi - Kathedral, ISIS. You can also use it to make staff with 2 separate heads. HOP kevlar is known for it's good quality. I would not be afraid to make to make braid out of this tape. In case of any doubt or hestitation, probabily best option."

Wicked wicking
"I've been so happy with H.O.P. wicks, I've tried many other wicking from other shops and none last as long nor seem to be as durable! Ive had wicks last me for almost a year! (Several burns almost every weekend) Definitely recommend if you are looking to replace wicking on worn props or make new ones!"

Great wick awesome price
"We made two fire swords and a pair of fire machete with this wick. It's narrow but really goes a long way. After about 5 burns looks as good as new. Amazing potential for such a low price."

Good Stuff
"Great product as usual, drillS well, cuts good enough with normal scissors. Soaks up fuel as it should and burns for a long time even after a short soak. Warm to the touch after use even after having it roaring from the kero a few seconds before. You know its good stuff. Don't bother buying it anywhere else, the more we buy the cheaper it gets or stays."
