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.
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.

Mixing Guidelines

  • 4050 UVLS Gloss is the recommended carrier for candy2o. It replaces 4030 Balancing Clear as it allows for a more even and heavier color coat. 4050 is especially recommended when applying with a spray-gun.
  • are intense. 4 – 6 medium wet coats are recommended for full color saturation. Allow each coat to air dry tack free prior; approximately 10 minutes flash-time in between coats when painting in non-humid, temperate conditions around 70 deg. F.  Adjust drying times in humid or colder conditions.
  • Allow candy2o mix to acclimate for 10+ minutes before spraying. Apply 4040 Bleed Checker over candy2o to prevent bleeding [leaching] of the dyes into top-coated colors or clear.
  • Refer to Hard Surface Application Guide for further application information.
  • STRAIN BEFORE USING! Always pour through a strainer before using. A fine mesh-size, 125, micron works best.
  • dry matte after application and appear transparent and vibrant after top-coating with a gloss clear
  • Createx recommend a top-coat with a Automotive - 2k, solvent-based, urethane clear for a deep wet look shine
