TWP 200 series: The 200 series is a high solid, heavy
duty penetrating coating. The 200 series is designed for extending the service
life of shakes and shingles. The primary function is to enhance
structural integrity and appearance of aged roofing. This coating will minimize
grain cracking, surface erosion, cupping, water absorption and surface attack
from mildew and algae. Although this is a penetrating coating a residual
surface film is highly resistant to destructive organisms. TWP 200 series
restored lubricity and flexibility to brittle shingles. This product is
available in all 50 states.

let it age a minimum of 4-6 weeks. Apply one even medium coat, allow 30 minutes
to pass and wipe up any excess that my still be present on the wood.
Wet on Wet (2
coats): 2 coats are not necessary, but will provide additional penetration
and protection for a few more months. Wet on Wet 2 coats process requires you
to put the second coat on immediately after the first. If an hour passes DO NOT
put a second coat, this will likely cause the stain to puddle on top and create
a film, which will peel over time. If you cannot do 2 coats immediately after
each other then wait until the following year to apply another coat.

Previously treated wood: TWP 200 series will work best on previously
treated wood if you clean the wood and reapply. (http://www.worldofstains.com/Gemini-Safe-Strip-Injectable-Stripper-p/ge-safe-strip-1.htm)
