Does sunlight 'age' wicks?

 

"Does sunlight or blacklights cause wicks to age faster?"
 

The mills that make it say that Kevlar is susceptible to UV damage. In short, DuPont recommends keeping it out of the sun (or blacklights). We're not sure exactly how this would affect fire tools (might only be tensile strength), but it's definitely a factor. Probably best not to store tools in direct sunlight, and to keep them away from UV blacklights.
