candy2o are water-based, aniline dye color concentrates intended for mixing with a carrier such as 4050 UVLS Gloss Clear.

candy2o are metal-complex dyes, which are light-fast stable and suitable for exterior applications such as automotive refinishing. While not lightfast like a pigment-based color, are not fugitive like a fluorescent and will last for many years with limited exposure to direct light, such as a candy paint job on a car or motorcycle that is driven and parked outside on sunny days, but otherwise garaged. candy2o’s dye type, metal complex, is more light-stable compared to other dye-types, both solvent-based and water-based.

candy2o are concentrated and appear dark in solution. After top-coated with a gloss clear, appear bright & vibrant over a metallic base, and the 100% transparent nature of the color will be apparent.
