Treatment With BoraCare Followed By Thompson Water Seal
I have read that when Bora Care is applied to untreated lumber and dries, it can be painted, stained and etc. I am currently building a home and will use untreated 4x8 plywood (3/4" thickness). I will apply Bora Care at the recommended rate and let dry, Subsequently, I want to treat the plywood with a water sealer such as Thompson Water Seal as a temporary sealer until I get the home dried-in. Of course the water sealer will penetrate the plywood to some extent. Will the water sealer have any adverse effects on the Bora Care?
The Sealer should not have any effect on the Boracare treatment as long as you allow the Boracare application to dry before applying the sealer. We recommend waiting at least 3 days before sealing (but not longer than 6 weeks).
