Can-bor® Professional benefits include:
– Borate-based log home preservative protects against wood-ingesting insects and rot
– Powder concentrate (easy to mix and environmentally friendly)
– Costs 5 times less than glycol-based borate products
– Effective against all types of decay fungi
Easy to Apply: Mix with water in a 5 gallon pail, pour into weed sprayer and spray the wood/logs. Allow to soak in and do not wash off. If doing 2 applications, wait 6 hours in between. Then 2-3 days of good drying weather before staining (under 19% moisture content). Foaming/Flooding is also used for rot repair.
You can either mix a 10% solution or a 15% solution. If you mix the 15% solution, it is just a one coat treatment. If you mix the 10% solution, you do one in the morning and one in the afternoon and you will have the 20% level which is ideal. People do it both ways, but for the cost and how easy it is, we highly recommend the (2) x 10% solution.
One pail does about 2000 sq ft with (2) x 10% solutions or 2700 sq ft with (1) x 15% solution.
To mix the 10% solution:
120g Canbor (About 333ml or 1.4 cups) + 1L Water= Coverage of about 50 sq ft.
Remember with a 10% solution, you are doing 2 applications with at least 6 hours dry time.
To mix the 15% solution:
180G Canbor (About 500ml or 2 cups) + 1 L water= Coverage of about 50 sq ft
