COLORBOND® LONG LASTING BEAUTY

COLORBOND® pre-painted steel is a premium product of BlueScope, produced by continuous hot-dip metal coating line complying to AS 1397-2011 (Substrate) and AS/NZS 2728-2013 (Paint Coating) standard. The new generation COLORBOND® is integrated with Activate™ technology, which has more than 20 patents globally for its proprietary process and its unique micro-structure of the 4 phases. Building on its legacy of innovation, COLORBOND® continues to bring art to life through the power of cutting-edge science.

THE BREAKTHROUGH TECHNOLOGY FOR WITHSTANDING SEVERE ENVIRONMENT

ACTIVATE™ TECHNOLOGY THE MICROSTRUCTURE OF 4 PHASES AND SELF-SEALING EFFECT FOR SUPERIOR CORROSION RESISTANCE

The key factor behind BlueScope’s patented ACTIVATE™ technology lies in the unique composition and microstructure of 4 phases including Aluminium - Zinc and 2 special Magnesium compounds.

The latest generation polymer technology of paint system

COLORBOND® steel uses the latest generation polymer technology of paint system that increases colour fading resistance, chalking resistance and gloss retention. As such, the COLORBOND® colour fading warranty period is increased by up to 12 years*.

TECHNOLOGY

Less heat, more comfort

BlueScope’s Thermatech® solar reflectance technology lowers the surface temperature of metals by absorbing less heat from the sun. With Thermatech® Technology, COLORBOND® steel delivers exceptional thermal performance, thus providing superior comfort all year round while reducing the dependence on energy-consuming air-conditioning to overcome the Urban Heat Island (UHI) effect.
Green building rating tools such as the Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) encourages use of materials with high SRI values to mitigate the UHI effect. COLORBOND® steel with Thermatech® is able to provide higher SRI value thus complying to the green building requirements.

* Solar reflectance index (SRI) is a numerical value used to represent a constructed surface’s ability to reflect solar heat. A higher SRI value indicates a roof whose surface temperature is lower due to the higher solar reflectance.

BENEFIT AT A GLANCE

  • Thermatech® solar reflectance technology acts as added insulation in hot weather, making it easier for air-conditioning to keep buildings cool.
  • Reduce annual cooling energy consumption by up to 15%*.
  • Lower peak roof temperature by up to 6°C*.
  • Greater comfort while using less energy, which helps to reduce cost and is friendlier to the environment.
  • * Depending on level of insulation, colour, building shape and function.

COLORBOND® steel with Clean technology prevents dirt from bonding to the surfaces. As a result, dirt particles remain "loose" and wash away during rainfall, resulting in a cleaner look. BlueScope offers up to 5 years warranty* against dirt staining.

* Warranty terms and conditions apply. The application of protective film (PE plastic, etc.) on COLORBOND® with Clean technology is not recommended as the Clean layer could be damaged. If applied, the dirt staining warranty is void.
