Every year, termites cause more damage to Australian homes than floods, fires and storms combined.

 At least one in five homes are affected and the cost of repairs regularly runs into thousands of dollars. Even more disturbing is that the destruction (and expense) termites cause is not      covered by normal household insurance.

So whether you’re planning to put up a new home or renovate an existing one, it’s vital that you comply with compulsory building regulations and invest in protecting your most important asset. Because wherever there is timber there are termites looking for their next meal.

For cost-effective, longterm protection, you can’t go past having a Kordon Termite Barrier installed.

Kordon is more than just termite proof

Many termite protection products act solely as a physical barrier, allowing the foraging insects to search up and down their length until they find a gap or weakness to enter through.

Kordon contains deltamethrin, a synthetic derivative of naturally occuring pyrethrum. Insects are naturally averse to deltamethrin and, given the choice, will not go near it. Repeated trials have shown that as soon as termites even get near the Kordon barrier they turn and go elsewhere for their food.

What is Kordon made of?

Kordon comprises polyester webbing containing deltamethrin, a synthetic pyrethroid and laminated between two UV stable low-density polyehylene plastic sheets.

How does Kordon work?

Kordon is a flexible laminate that is installed in the building during the construction process to prevent concealed access by subterranean termites.  Kordon contains deltamethrin which is highly repellent to termites.

Subterranean termites (termites) are social insects that live in a colony like bees and ants. Typically they form a nest in the soil or near ground level in a stump or trunk of a tree. They eat cellulose which is found in timber and timber products such as paper. Attack by termites originates from the nest. Foraging termites will seek cellulose up to 50 m or more from their nest. Wood or timber lying or buried is reached by underground tunnels built by the termite workers. Timber above ground may be reached inside the timber or via mud walled tubes plastered to exposed surfaces. These tubes are built by the termites to shelter them from the light and maintain humidity. There are more than 350 species in Australia and about 30 are classified as economically important – that is they attack timber in buildings.

As well as eating timber, termites can damage non-cellulose materials such as soft concrete, soft metal and plastic, building sealants and foam insulation.

Cracks in concrete and the gap around pipes penetrating through the concrete slab offer easy access to termites. Kordon is installed where termites may attempt to gain access to the timber in a building. The deltamethrin in Kordon is highly repellent to termites and they will avoid close contact with it. Where Kordon is installed the termites will seek cellulose elsewhere or seek to go around the Kordon. When seeking to go around the Kordon the termites will build their mud tubes which will be detected during an inspection by a suitably qualified Timber Pest Inspector.  Steps can then be taken to eliminate the termite colony before significant damage can be done. When termites get concealed access, such as when Kordon is not installed, access is gained for a long period resulting in significant and expensive damage.

Environmentally sensitive and allergen free

 Backed by the global resources of Bayer, one of the world’s most trusted names in health and environmental science,  Kordon’s innovative plastic-sealed design makes it the ideal choice for allergen free housing and environmentally sensitive  sites.

It’s the reason why Kordon is so often preferred for use in schools, hospitals, public buildings and quality-conscious new  residential developments.


Kordon’s design is unique. It comprises a special layer of webbing to which a precise and consistent dose of deltamethrin is applied. This is then sealed between two robust sheets of quality UV-stable plastic to deliver environmentally safe termite protection not only guaranteed to last, but fully conform with the Australian Building Code, AS3660 and ABCB certification No. 2003/001.

Kordon is backed by a Bayer comprehensive product warranty

A unique Australian made and designed product, Kordon has been extensively tested over a 20-year period by Bayer, the CSIRO, State Forestry Departments, State Building Authorities and Building Design Academics.

In all evaluation work carried out by Bayer, Kordon has achieved 100% performance as an effective barrier to termites. It is CodeMark certified to 50 year durability

Kordon has undergone extensive testing by CSIRO and other independent Australian authorities since 1989.

In all evaluation work conducted, Kordon has never been penetrated by termites. Furthermore there have been no penetrations of the product by termites in any of the 120,000+ installations which have been made since 1996.

  • Kordon Termite Barrier has the CodeMark GM-10-CM30001
  • CodeMark certification covers 50+ years durability and resistance to penetration by Mastotermes darwiniensis
