Ants/ Termites generally damage wood, clothes, walls etc. and sometimes try to break through the plastic to access a food source. Formosan termites can eat through PVC pipes. Termites will readily damage flexible PVC grade compounds. They have strong mandibles which they use to chew through electrical wiring, switches, and plug sockets etc. They can damage a building’s electrical wiring in several ways, causing blackouts and putting you and your family at risk. Ants tend to attack PU foams. Keeping them at bay is not an easy task. Lifeline Technologies’ Ant cum termite repellent additives make plastic safe without compromising on its look and quality.
