Candy concentrates inks


Packaging 250ml or 1L

Candy concentrates are solvent based inks, extremely transparent. The hues are highly concentrated and transluscent.

> Download the Candy Stardust color map at the bottom of the page.

We recommend to add these concentrates to automotive clearcoats, to get ready-to-use Candy topcoats.

Some customers are used to mix the concentrates to transparent mono-component binders (Available in our section TOPCOAT), as it makes it easier to apply the Candy. One has to take into account that topcoats are more transluscent than binders.

 

All our Candy concentrates display important qualities :

- A strong tinting power:

Only a few dozen grams can tint 1.5 Litre of clearcoat or 2L of pre-thinned binder.

-A perfect mix in all solvent based products:

You can add them to paints, topcoats and solvent based binders.

- A maximum resistance to UV

Excellent rating for UV resistance (Blue Wool Scale). Tested under extreme conditions.

 

Note: All our candy are extremely concentrated transluscent inks, except for the following colours: Purple / Plum / Magenta. These three products are viscous transparent tints (they are less transparent  and have lesser tinting power)

Composition : Solvent based product . VOC > 90%

Aspect: Dark colour liquid

Use : Concentrates can’t be used pure as they are : mix them with mono or bi-components transparent binders (binder or topcoat). Avoid repeated and prolonged exposure to air. Mix quickly to the binder or to clearcoat. Seal well the paint can after use.

How to achieve a darker effect:


two choices :

1 - apply more layers of "Candy": beyond 5 layers, the result is very dark.

2 - apply less pearlescent, sequined or metallic undercoat, so that the black background is always a little visible


When should you add UV or elasticizing additives? (from the primerto the last layer)



The elasticizer and the anti-UV are used only in the upper layers of 2C varnish
Guides to produce Candy hues:

The underlayers:
To have a Candy color easily and surely, use BC1 underlayment.
To obtain very darkened aspects, use the BC24 underlayment.
For clear hues and vibrant colors, use white underlays (BC4 / BC8).

- Candy yellow:
With the only shade of Yellow 21, we obtain the following colors: lemon yellow, gold yellow, light gold or golden brown.
For a "dirty" gold, use gold 99.

- Candy red:
Apply red 119 for an orange-red, warm tone.
Apply red 08 for a pinkish red, garnet.

- Candy Blue:
Opt for blue cyan 06 (recommended) to get turquoise blue to dark blue.
Use Blue 03 or 07 to achieve special blue.

- Candy Green:
Use green 31 for a lemony green hue.
Use green 33 for a blue color.
