Can Xim X-tender or floatrol be used with BM advance?

janesylviaMay 31, 2014

I am painting my honey oak kitchen cabinets with BM advance simply white. XIM latex X-tender says it can be mixed with latex paint to extend the drying time, so does Floatrol. Can I use them with BM advance, which is not a latex paint?

I tried XIM latex X-tender on two cabinets, and found as a result, the sheen is shinier than that if I mix with a little water. Can I mix the BM with a little water? With water, it dried faster than with extender. Without water or X-tender, the BM advance in the tray became thick fast.

Thank you very much.

No. Don't mix advance with anything.

I too am painting my cabs with simply white Advance.
I must say, I hate the stuff with a brush or roller. It sprays OK. But when sprayed, it is shinier than I like.
But, it is the hardest paint finish I've found.

That said, I'm on the fence about maybe switching to Behr.
