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

    Murray remained at least 1.5m distance when our paths crossed during his station checks (I was working in the back garden near the house) which he carried out efficiently & in a timely fashion. He was wearing appropriate PPE. Murray re-closed the two access gates he needed to use. Same service as usual, excellent!

    Allstate were professional and left the premises neat and tidy after the inspection. I had recently bought the house and they were able to provide me with the previous treatment history, had knowledge of the inspection points and just provided a totally hassle free service, just what I needed. I will certainly continue to use them and thoroughly recommend them to anyone.

    Friendly staff, happy to answer any questions, on time. Our experience with Allstate was very enjoyable. Adam was fantastic the day he came out to inspect our house and was happy to explain anything that I didn't understand and happily worked around our toddler. We had our stations installed a week later, and the guys were on time and I was able to leave them there unsupervised. The technician came out today to inspect the stations and he was very efficient, which is what I like. Thanks guys

    Mark from Allstate Pest Control did a Termite Inspection to our house. He arrived on time and was very professional. He did a great job and was very efficient. He was also nice to talk to. Gave us a partial verbal report and sent a copy of the report of the inspection as well. He also gave us an advise on what signs to look out for which showed that he’s really knowledgeable of what he does. Highly recommended not just the company but Mark as well.

    I had a bait station check today. Murray my regular Allstate representative arrived promptly at the prearranged time, greeted me courteously, and was efficient in checking the stations. I was again impressed by his friendliness and his communication with me regarding the state of the traps and in concluding the visit. Typical good service from Allstate.👍
