Perform Guard® Performance

The Problem

Insulation helps keep people comfortable. Unfortunately, insulations are susceptible to termite infestation. Termites love to live, work and eat in comfortable and protected surroundings. All insulation can potentially provide this environment. Most of the U.S. is susceptible to termite activity. It is important that insulation systems account for potential termite infestation.Termite logo

The Solution: Perform Guard® EPS

Perform Guard® EPS is an important component in helping to control this problem. It's made by a patented process using an inorganic mineral that is a natural deterrent to termites. This mineral is incorporated into the insulation during the manufacturing process. It is registered with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for this application. Perform Guard® EPS has been thoroughly tested, is safe, noncorrosive and nontoxic to humans. And termites hate it.  Perform Guard® is not a barrier system, but should be used in conjunction with a total insect-management program available from a reputable pest-control operator.
