    No. There are oil based paints that use a petroleum product as the solvent.


    There are latex paints but the quality can vary very very good one sold under the usual name brands like Sherwin Williams, Behr, etc are more like an acryliic paint and are more durable than the latex versions from years ago.


    To be doubly sure you should speak with your local paint supplier as to its compatibility with Kilz.
