TWP® is a high solids, heavy duty, penetrating system specifically designed to extend the service life of shakes and shingles. The primary function is to enhance the structural integrity and appearance of aged roofing. The finish composition will minimize grain cracking, cupping, surface erosion, water absorption and surface attack from mildew and algae. Although the system is highly penetrative, the residual surface film is highly resistant to destructive organisms. The penetrative portion of the product absorbs into aged and porous wood, adding bulk to aged and brittle wood fiber. This restores lubricity and flexibility to brittle shingles. At 94%+ solids, these products comply with all current federal and state VOC (volatile organic compounds) regulations.
