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?

Answer:

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).
