I heard that glycol will penetrate a wood that's painted w/o effecting the finish.
Can I paint Bora Care directly onto a painted finish in its undiluted state, such that it will penetrate the finish and the wood to provide a protective barrier. I know you are supposed to drill the wood, but that's not possible everywhere so I was wondering if this would have any protective effect or not.
Bora-Care should only be applied to raw that has not been painted, stained, sealed or varnished. It must also be diluted for any application with warm or hot water. It will crystallize on the surface and not penetrate otherwise. We do carry a product called Jecta that can be injected into treated wood.
