Kordon can be molded around unusual shapes and can quickly be cut and joined to form a continuous barrier.
Made Tough for Building Site Conditions: KORDON Termite Barrier is a robust product. It takes a sharp knife to cut Kordon, a blunt object has little chance of penetrating the product. If a hole is made accidentally, it can be easily repaired.
Consistency of Product: Each square metre of KORDON Termite Barrier contains a consistent rate of 1 gram of deltamethrin. Kordon is manufactured to strict quality guidelines and quality control procedures by Bayer Environmental Science.
Long Term Warranty: When correctly installed by a Bayer accredited installer, the KORDON Termite Barrier system provides a 10 year warranty backed by Bayer Environmental Science.
For the Life of the Building: Based on on-going research, trial results indicate KORDON Termite Barrier should provide termite protection for more than 50 years.
Environmentally Safe: Bayer has declared KORDON Termite Barrier to be harmless to people and allergy free product.
