RotFix can also be used as a stand-alone product that enhances the performance of primer and paint over architectural wood components. RotFix penetrates into the grain of the wood causing greater dimensional stability. The added stability leads to a significant reduction in stress to the primer and paint from seasonal moisture cycling. This directly translates to less cracking in the paint film. One additional benefit of using RotFix as a pre-primer wood treatment, is that the surface of the paint will have less dirt pickup, resulting in a cleaner, brighter appearance. RotFix causes your primer and paint to look nicer and last longer.
