How long does Bora-Care take to dry on wood surfaces?

Hi, What's the normal drying time after applying Bora-Care before you can touch and paint any of the treated wood areas? Also, how many applications of Bora-Care should you apply to any bare wood surfaces in order for Bora-Care to sink deep into the wood you're treating so that it can protect from all future infestations and or any existing infestation that might be current? Thank you!


You should allow areas treated with Bora-Care to dry for 24-48 hours before touching or painting them. Most applicators apply two coats of Bora-Care for best results.
