Wholesale Vape Cotton Wicks

Cotton is a soft, fluffy fibre that grows around the seeds of the cotton plant. It is one of the most commonly used natural fibres in the world, and is used to make a wide variety of textiles and products, including vaping wicks. Cotton is known for its absorbency, strength, and versatility, and is a popular choice for nearly all vape atomisers. 

Cotton is absorbent because of its unique structure and chemistry. The cotton fibre is made up of many small, twisted strands, which create tiny spaces or pores within the fibre. These pores can trap and hold onto moisture, allowing vape cotton to absorb and hold large amounts of e-liquid. 

Cotton is used as a wicking material in vaping. Inside every vape tank is a coil with a piece of cotton wrapped around it. This cotton serves the purpose of absorbing vape liquid and holding it in place while the coil heats up from the vape battery being fired. Cotton for vaping is heat-resistant, which is necessary since it is used to wick heating coils. It’s also ideal for absorbing e-liquid and funnelling it to your coils, and its neutral flavour ensures pure, unadulterated flavour.

There are some key requirements for cotton before it can be used for vaping: It should be chlorine-free, bleach-free, free of particles, 100% cotton and unperfumed. Vapers had experimented with silica, mesh, hemp and rayon, but almost universally cotton has been embraced and heralded as the best wicking material, due to its low-cost, ease-of-use and neutral taste.
