Very nearly any sealing material will provide some level of prevention,
parafin melted in a petroleum base will even work.  Commercial materials
are used for ease of handling and acceptance by our EPA or any agency
ya'll have in Canada.  For short term use even latex paint works, to a
certain degree.

It will, indeed, inprove the end value of the logs.
