Mad Dog Deck Fix Primer(MDPDF) is a water-based, non-toxic, low VOC, stabilizing primer. Mad Dog Deck Fix Primer(MDPDF) penetrates in and around old coatings to stabilizes your peeling deck surface. MDPDF also works extremely well for new or old weathered decks and railings, not just brand new decks! MDPDFprimer goes on like glue, remains flexible, and locks down solid latex decking stain for years and years so you can get the most out of your deck.
Surfaces to be coated should be clean, dry, and free of grease, oil, wax, wallpaper adhesive, and other contaminants that could interfere with proper adhesion. Scrape and wash the surface as necessary, allowing appropriate drying time after.
Bare wood that has been exposed for more than 4 weeks should be lightly sanded or abraded to remove weathered wood fibers down to a pink color.
MDPDF will remain tacky until top coated. We recommend you remove your shoes when walking on MDPDF when it is dry. We recommend you wear only socks when applying the 1st finish coat of solid latex decking stain. Your socks are more forgiving to the tacky primer and will not tear up the Deck Fix from the deck surface.
