 One Quart of Candy Basecoat

without Pearl


These kandy colors are created by combining dyes or highly transparent pigments with our urethane basecoat chemistry to create a color very close to that of the 2K catalyzed candys.  However, the EKB series, candy basecoat dries faster, and tapes easier with less edge build than catalyzed 2K urethane candys. As such the EKB series is better suited for graphics applications and layering of tape-outs. Final color depends highly on the color of basecoat used underneath. Like the 2K catalyzed candy, this series of candy requires a metallic base to achieve a sparkling color. 

This type of candy basecoat does not contain pearl. if you are looking for candy base that does contain pearl you want to look at our candy graphic color basecoat.  Like all true candy paints these paints do not last as long as normal automotive paints. For maximum durability consider one of our pearl colors.  You can view those over here: pearl car colors.


Check local regulations for compliance. For customers in areas requiring low VOC we offer a low VOC version of these basecoats. See more details below or contact us at info@thecoatingstore.com.





Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) 



How is it possible to sell these products so much less than other companies?

Our unique sales and marketing strategy allows us to save large amounts of money by not hiring a national sales force to distribute our products. Furthermore, we do not have large marketing budgets based off exorbitant costs of race and show sponsorships.


Is this a quality product?

Absolutely, but don't take our word for it. Click on the image below to pull up our latest unbiased reviews on our product and services through our ebay store.


How much paint do I need?

The amount of paint depends on a lot of factors but generally one kit will paint the outside and jambs on most vehicles. Large SUVs or large trucks where you are spraying inside the bed may need another quart kit or two but this is rare.


How long do these colors hold up?

As mentioned above candy colors do not last as long outdoors as normal automotive paint.  The amount of time they hold up outside depends on the amount od time the paint spends in direct sunlight. Generally speaking vehicles painted with true candy paint that are outside all day everyday will need to be re-painted in approximately 18-24 months to retain the same rich color as a new candy finish. If the vehicle spends less time in the sun it can last longer. If you want a color that lasts longet consider one of our metallic or pearl finishes that last much longer.


How much is shipping and how long will it take before I get my kit?
