Candy Concentrates once mixed with a solvent will create extremely vivid, high strength transparent tints which are then added to solvent based coatings to create candy coloured paints.

Traditionally used in automotive coatings however Candy Concentrates can be used in other applications where inks would normally be used.
For external applications where exposure to UV light is unavoidable, UV absorbing additive is highly recommended to prolong the life of the colour.
Candy Concentrates are available in two forms of which one is a powder and the other a pre-dissolved 100ml liquid solution, both versions are identical except for this fact.
Candy Concentrates have the following properties
·High Strength tinting power
·Excellent light fastness with all colours having a minimum of 6 on the Blue Wool sale
The Candy Concentrates will need to be in liquid form before they can be used. If purchasing the powder version, you will need to dissolve the powder into your chosen solvent, this is usually at a ratio of 5g of power to 100ml solvent. Various solvents will accept more or less powdered concentrate so we recommend always mixing powder gradually.
Once in liquid form we suggest a ratio of 10% Candy Concentrate be added to your solvent based clear carrier or clear top coat.
