Customer Questions & Answers

    If I have wood that is already showing signs of penetrating mold and the wood still seems stable, can I apply liberal amounts of Bora-Care and will it kill existing mold and protect going forward? I plan on coating with Abatron liquid wood once the Bora-Care treatment is thoroughly dried. Thanks in advance . Richard

    Yes.

  2. I have a scribed log garage, one 25' log has a 12' section mid length that suffered 'sun scald" on the top quadrant and sounds hollow and I suspect dry rot. I was intending to drill holes and injecting Liquid Wood, can I inject BoraCare into the same holes or will the salts prevent absorption of the epoxy?

    You can apply the Bora-Care first, let the wood dry back out completely, the apply the LiquidWood.

  4. I will be building a pole barn in Virginia and plan to set pressure treated poles in the ground with compacted soil. Will Bora-Care applied to pressure treated wood increase the resistance to rot and termites? Is it compatible with pressure treated wood?

    Once Bora-Care is applied to the wood, it remains in the wood for the life of
    the structure, delivering long-term residual protection. It will protect interior wood as well as exterior wood that
    remains painted or sealed.

  6. I applied Bora-care to a very large wood sculpture that is in a public space (library). I would like to apply either linseed oil or tung oil with synthetic resins as a finish coat. Any concerns? What is the recommended drying time for Bora-care before the finish oil coats?

    The wood should be completely dried back out after application of the Bora-Care before applying any other product. I don't believe there would be any problems with the finish coats you are considering.

    I don't think so, as long as you allow the product to completely dry before apply your epoxy product. You may want to check with the manufacturer of the epoxy you are using and/or the manufacturer of Bora-Care.
