4040 Bleed Checker

  • 4040 Bleed Checker is a hybridized, urethane-acrylic clear used as an inter-coat intended for application over candy2o to prevent the candy2o’s dyes from bleeding into top-coated colors.
  • Apply 4040 Bleed Checker over candy2o as an inter-coat.  After 4040 has thoroughly dried (30 – 60 minutes), other colors including subsequent candy2o colors may be applied direct without scuffing.  4040 will prevent the underlying candy2o’s dye from leaching (“bleeding”) into the top-coated colors.
  • Apply 4040 Bleed Checker un-reduced, straight from the bottle when applying as an inter-coat over candy2o.  Do not reduce with 4012 Reducer as it’s a solvent used with candy2o and use of it in 4040 will create a shared material between candy2o and 4040 which may allow for bleeding.
