Alsa’s Killer Cans of Candy spray paint are a pre-tinted, yet clear, automotive grade urethane. They are available in many different colors. This spray paint is commonly referred to in the automotive industry as “Candies”, as it is a translucent finish, similar to a “liquid stained glass” that can be applied over any existing color base coat (with silver being the most popular) or even chrome, chrome paint, or other polished metallics.

  • The first true automotive grade high gloss candy tint in aerosol cans, (best used over silver, gold or chrome - sample shown in image is killer cans candy over stylin’ nevada silver base)
  • You can now tint any chrome or chrome paint with candies
  • Super high grade resins system, not an alkyd like traditional paints, but a pure urethane
  • High output - double normal aerosol spray paints
  • Better spray pattern and excellent atomization
  • No pressure drop during application
  • Large comfortable spray nozzles, for easy application, and superior control
  • Time and labor savings – no paint mixing, no spray gun preparation or cleaning
  • Material savings – complete use of paint, high transfer efficiency, no cleanup thinner
  • Highest quality BASF pigments and resins
  • Larger amount of paint than standard paint can
  • Super high pigment levels – less coats needed
  • Indoor/outdoor use
  • Only ultra-high quality UV inhibitors are used, traditional aerosols have NO UV
  • Application savings – less overspray-cleaning and polishing time

Rated 5 out of 5 by Top Quality Paint, True Candy Color Finally, someone came out with a true Candy color in a spray can. I had a small nicknack that I had been wanting to restore for some time. I used this paint for the base coat color. I was really impressed. For proper color and coverage, you need to use the recommended base coat, and a clear coat for a final. The manufacture provides you the information for these items. December 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Vibrant color The average home users does not have access to expensive paint sprayers, and our choice of quality 'rattle can' paints has typically been limited. Also Corp came to the rescue and have packaged their Candy Apple Red paint in a paint can, and the result whilst not spray booth quality are very close. I took a raw piece of steel from my CNC plasma table, lightly sanded it, and applied a plain grey primer. After allowing to cure for 24 hours, I once again lightly sanded the piece before applying two coats of Candy Apple Red. The color really pops. I'm not sure what nozzle they are using in the spray cans, but I like it. I found the paint applied evenly without spattering. It was easy to get an even and consistent coating. Depending on the base coat/primer color you use, will depend on the type of finish and color you get. A deep and rich color without the expense of a spray booth. September 16, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Paint and wait. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Patience is a virtue huh? Well you're gonna need that and deep pockets. This will eventually get you your candy apple red coat after coat after coat after coat - you get the idea. The base color dramatically affects what your end result will be as this is a "tinted" spray. If you have the time you can get a "good" result but at this cost per can?? February 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just Awesome! Professional look, premium quality in a spray can. I'll admit, I was a little skeptical at first, but this stuff blew me away. October 13, 2013
