Waterproofing roof shingles

I have a 20 year old roof. The shingles are a masonite compsite. I think they were called " Woodriff shingles" Although the shingles seem to be in good shape, I would like to waterproof them. What is a good product to do this?
Thanks; Dar

I think this a product that was made by Georgia Pacific...... I would be very careful here....... I have not used this product, but have wood experiance, wood shingle, cedar shakes, etc.....Wood is a natural product and sealing wood on the surface can cause warpage since it can no longer breath. Your shingles are a manmade composition but still contain wood. Your question may be better served by a painter who likely does alot of wood sealing ( new doors and such)
