XIM® 400C NT Tintable Base is a low VOC version of XIM traditional 400 Clear. 400C NT Tintable Base meets the 200 g/l VOC rule limits. It is a premium solvent-based primer/sealer/bonder designed to solve many painting problems. It can be tinted to mid and deep tone colors and provides excellent adhesion, sealing and bonding on many hard-to-coat surfaces. No sanding is required for most clean, paintable surfaces.
400C NT can be used for both interior and outdoor applications and can be used with most topcoats. Because there are many types of surfaces, plastics and composite materials, always test a small inconspicuous area first for adhesion and topcoat compatibility.
400C NT is suitable for use as a prime coat for wood, hardboard, plaster, some plastic, glass, tile and fiberglass. 400C NT is not recommended for tubs, sinks or showers where hot or continuous water contact occurs. For extra corrosion protection when coating iron or steel, use XIM 360 Rust Inhibiting Primer or XIM Corrosion Control™ water-based primer. On extremely porous surfaces or severe staining types of wood, a second coat of XIM 400C NT White may be needed prior to application of the finish coat(s).
