Termite Control Products

Kordon Termite Barrier

Kordon is a repellent termite barrier installed around a building to minimise the chance of a termite infestation. It is made in Adelaide and backed Bayer, one of the world’s largest environmental science companies. Kordon has been extensively tested by the CSIRO and evaluated to have a durability and design life of 50 years, in line with the building life expectancy deemed by the Australian Buildings Code Board. Some of the key features of Kordon include:

  • Flexibility
  • Suitable for all building applications
  • Allergen-free and non-hazardous

Kordon comprises of polyester webbing containing a synthetic pyrethroid called deltamethrin. It is laminated between two UV stable low-density polyethylene plastic sheets.

How Kordon Works

Kordon is installed where termites may attempt to gain access into a building. The deltamethrin is highly repellent to termites and they will avoid close contact with it, instead seeking cellulose elsewhere or going around the Kordon whilst building their mud tubes. These will be detected during an inspection by a qualified timber pest inspector, who can then take steps to eliminate the termite colony before they can cause major damage.

When Kordon is not installed, termites can gain concealed access to buildings for long period of time, resulting in significant and expensive damage.

Kordon Warranties

Each home that has Kordon installed is protected by the Limited Kordon Product Warranty, which covers the home for termite entry and damage in the case the Kordon Termite Barrier has been proven to fail.

Bayer, Kordon’s manufacturer, also offers Australia’s most comprehensive termite protection system – the Bayer Protection Program. If the building owner chooses to activate this, they will be protected by Bayer’s exclusive $1m warranty, covering all remedial action and repair should termites gain access to the home within the warranty period.

Building Services

Side Slab Moisture Protection
Side slab moisture protection minimises the risk of slab edge dampness by installing a waterproofing compound around the entire house slab. If concrete is not waterproofed, slab edge dampness can cause efflorescence (similar to salt damp), internal moisture issues, and can encourage termite activity.
Moisture Barrier Products

Allstate uses Ardex WPM 300, Deep Cure, Xypex Concentrate and Homeguard Protectacote.

  • Ardex WPM 300 – Ardex WPM 300 is a two-component water-based epoxy moisture barrier, which prevents slab edge dampness and efflorescence. It has excellent adhesion and can be applied to freshly laid concrete.
  • Deep Cure – Deep Cure is an environmentally friendly, non-toxic and odourless water-based compound. Deep Cure penetrates into the surface of the slab and reacts with the free alkaline in the concrete, forming a gel that prevents water migrating into or out of the slab.
  • Homeguard Protectacote – HomeGuard Protectacote is a waterproof and termite resistant barrier used around the perimeter of new slab-onground structures and extensions to existing structures. HomeGuard Protectacote is an acrylic polymer latex composition with a high loading of inorganic fillers. On curing, it forms a tough, flexible, termite resistant and waterproof film. Its active ingredient is Bifenthrin.
  • Xypex Concentrate – Xypex Concentrate is a chemically active waterproofing compound. It stops water from penetrating its surface by causing a catalytic reaction that produces a non-soluble crystalline formation within the pores of the concrete.
Concrete Curing

Concrete curing is the process of controlling moisture loss after concrete is poured, to reduce the risk of cracking and maximize the concrete’s strength and durability. Reducing cracking will also ensure the slab’s efficacy as a termite barrier.

Appropriate curing methods are highly recommended when there is low humidity, strong winds and/or the temperature exceeds 26°C.

  • Concrete Curing Products – Allstate use Rendacure, a water-based curing compound which is sprayed or rolled directly onto freshly laid concrete. Rendacure dries clear, is wax and solvent free and will not affect after trades.
Concrete Repairs

We provide repairs for cracks, tie holes and other defects in concrete.

  • Concrete Repair Products – Allstate uses XYPEX PATCH’N PLUG, a specially designed hydraulic cement compound for concrete patching and repair. It is fast-setting, non-shrink, and high-bond-strength. We also use a range of Ardex Products designed for different uses. These products are a high-strength, rapid setting two-part system to repair concrete

    Travis had been helpful and thoughtful in his delivery information about pest control due to my cancer and worry about chemicals inside the unit and around the property.

    Thank you Travis for doing a wonderful job and taking the time to hear me.

    I have been using Statewide Pest Control for many years and will continue to do so their operations have been efficient and effective for me.

    I was referred to Allstate from a friend initially for termites. From first contact to end result they were amazing. Friendly, reliable, knowledgeable and thorough. They followed up and made sure all was well. Then shortly after I had a rodent issues which again staff came out and were amazing and patient with me. Thanks to you all. Will definitely recommend you.

    Brady was exceptionally professional and courteous. His extensive knowledge and experience gave us great comfort that our uninvited guests in our roof would not be visiting again. Brady is a great ambassador for Allstate and will be the main reason that I will only call Allstate for my future needs.

    The lovely young man who attended my job was professional knowledgeable amiable polite well spoken efficient helpful. I would absolutely recommend this business to everybody for their inspections and pest treatments. Not only do they turn up on time and communicate a small change in the timeline that is to say that they were early which worked great for me but the detail and thorough in depth inspection and treatment was carried out to a level/standard which absolutely exceeded my expectations. Being honest I was fully prepared as a female to be somewhat disregarded based on previous experience with other providers however to my Delight there was no gender bias in the delivery at all I was treated with courtesy dignity and respect. The only feedback I can give to the company would be tap and go payment is far more comfortable for the customer in this case me as opposed to typing in my card number to pay my bill everything else top rank number one in the country good job well done
