Default Can Stix be tinted?

Paint store closed, I was hoping to have this done before Monday,and am working on a cabinet bid looking to spec Stix. Current color is a white and they are trying to choose between going back to white or going dark. If its not tintable I will need to spec extra coats -

Absolutely, you're just somewhat limited as to how dark. Unlike some other primers(Fresh Start,1-2-3), to my knowledge there isn't a deep base for Stix.

2oz. of black is good enough for any color change

I would assume you could tint it as much as any white base primer could be tinted.
We just used 12 gallons of 123 tinted yesterday and this morning. Perfect colour match to the soft yellow that was existing.

Thanks for the replies. Neither the TDS not Stix brochure had it listed. Not all paints can be tinted.
