Default Nix primer

Has anyone ever heard of a primer brand called Nix primer? I have a painter who is dealing with a decorina who is insistent that it is the best primer for oak cabinet re-paints and wants him to use it. He and I both can't find anything on the internet. Any ideas?

I found a Nyx primer but it is a cosmetic product. Maybe the decorina is confused. Hard to believe i know.

No doubt she was talking stix but was not listening when she was told about the product.

I never liked "decorina"s because they always disappear after telling HO something impossible is "Done all the time". The painter wants to know the what's and hows she's talking about but she won't be back until the job is done. I've had more than one of those!

One, told my client that a very flat faux finish could be coated with a flat vanished to protect it. At the time, the only product that could be found was artist's water color varnish at $200 a gallon! The HO went for it. "If that's what it costs' that's what it costs." The decorator returned after I was gone, never having told me what product she was talking about and I have no idea if art varnish held up on through wall scrubbing.

Turns out it was XIM. Now all we need to find out is which of the twenty XIM products it is. But we're making headway!

Isn't that the truth! Maybe I'll just jack up the price on my Cali Gripcoat primer by $30 a gallon and she'll be happy.
