Ceramic takes more fuel than Kevlar so flame is bigger and burnouts are bigger. And due to more fuel, burn time is also longer. The important thing to remember with ceramic wicks is to burn once before spinning. Just soak with fuel and fire without spinning. After that ceramic wick become strong and is ready for use. It’s not recommended to use as a training prop.
Remember that ceramic rope is a bit more fragile than Kevlar. It’s not recommended to drop it too often, but by all other means it is durable enough. We do not recommend using ceramic rope for fleshing and eating. It’s rough and scratchy and usually has higher temperatures.
Ceramic fiber textiles are durable, high temperature to 1260°C (2300°F).
