The Leaders in Innovative Insulation and Corrosion Coatings
Home > Products > Ultracide


Ultracide Latex insecticide coatings that provide year-round insect control with a single application. Apply to virtually any surface (walls, ceilings, window and door frames, structural members) with a paint brush, roller or sprayer. The coatings dry to a durable, washable finish, and will control insects that come in contact with the surface for up to two years.

Odorless, extremely low toxicity and non-flammable. Ideal for use in "sensitive" areas, such as food preparation and storage areas, and living quarters.

Two formulations for more control options:

Ultracide (white) is recommended for virtually any interior or exterior application (see label instructions for specific guidelines). The white formulation gives a smooth, beautiful finish to any surface it is applied to, provides excellent coverage, and resists degradation by water, weather and sunlight (UV).

Ultracide (clear) is designed to cover interior and exterior surfaces without changing their appearance. The clear formulation dries to an almost invisible finish. Ultracide (clear) is recommended for "banding" applications (similar to conventional insecticide application) in areas where insects are most active.

It should be used to treat insect pathways and entry routes, on both sides of exterior walls, windows, doors, wall voids, foundations, and as a sealant for cracks and crevices. Latex organophosphate insecticide coating providing continuous insect control for over 2 years. Extremely low risk of contamination.

  • Health care facilities

2. Application

Surfaces must be clean and dry before application. Loose or flaking old paints or corrosion must be removed from surface before applying. High pressure water blasting is as effective as light sand blasting in removing loose or flaking surfaces. As a rule "a coating is only as good as the surface it covers." Grease, oil, waxy substances, dirt, etc. must be cleaned from surfaces. Ultracide can bond to metal, masonry, wood and Other porous surface substrates. Can be applied using brush, roller or airless or air pot sprayer. Tip size can range from .013 - .017 pumping at 2000-2500 psi. Clean up with water and rinse thoroughly. Wash residue can flush to drain or ground. The percentage of active ingredients is less than 1% ;and not critical to environment. Application surface temperature: minimum-40°F, and maximum- 120°F.

3. Cautions and Warning

Do not allow children or pets to contact treated surfaces until coating has dried. May be harmful if swallowed, inhaled or absorbed through skin. Avoid breathing vapors while paint is wet. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Do not apply to surfaces on which food will be prepared or served or in which animal feed will be serve & such as mangers and troughs. NOTE TO PHYSICIANS: Chlorpyrifos is a cholinesterase inhibitor. Treat symptomatically. Atropine by injection is the antidote of choice.

Cost-effective: Provides year round insect control with a single application. Once applied, the coatings continue to work for up to two years Unique polymers allow the coatings to dry to a smooth, durable finish. When bugs come in contact with treated surface, insecticide micro particles are dissolved and absorbed by the mucus on the insect's feet.

Versatile: Can be applied anywhere, even in "sensitive" areas. Coating polymers keep the insecticide "locked" in the treated surface until "released" by insects, which helps prevent contamination of stored food, animals or people. Extremely low toxicity; contains less than 1% active ingredient. Nonflammable, odorless when dry. Nearly invisible.

Easy to use. General use label. Can be applied by using a standard paint brush, roller or spray.
