Thanks for the response.  SBX is Sodium Borate Oxide. It's similar to
DOT (water-soluble and less corrosive than CCA).  Do you specify DOT for
sill plates and/or for wood attached to concrete below grade?

I specify DOT [Disodium Octaborate tetrahydrate] wood preservative
with AWPA UCS2 or C31 for locations not exposed to liquid water, and
no special metal connectors with wood so-treated.  I'm researching
site-applied BORA-CARE by Nisus Corp. [] can provide
equivalent protection, but have not received a reply yet.


What is SBX?
