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.
  • With the unique composition and microstructure of the 4 phases, the new generation COLORBOND® and ZINCALUME® steel create a self-sealing effect that greatly improves corrosion resistance at cut edges, screw holes, and scratches. This mechanism protects projects in severe environment such as marine and polluted industrial environment, enabling them to withstand the test of time.

WITHSTANDING THE TEST OF TIME

COMPREHENSIVE TESTING OVER 20 YEARS

To ensure the new generation of COLORBOND® and ZINCALUME® steel with Activate™ technology live up to the highest expectations in durability, BlueScope conducted a comprehensive testing programme that included accelerated laboratory corrosion tests, as well as real-world outdoor exposure tests. Over a 20-year period, more than 8,000 profile panels have undergone Q-Fog cyclic testing and salt spray testing in laboratories. A further 10,000 panels have been tested in 22 different exposure sites in Australia and around the world.

Accelerated Testing (>8,000 panels)

Outdoor assessment sites (> 10,000 panels spread over 22 sites)

Test Huts (5)

Building Applications (~50)

Additionally, during the product developing stage, 50 building sites comprising a wide range of applications, as well as 5 purpose-built test structures, have been tested in the real-world conditions and in severe marine environment.

The results were independently verified by the internationally recognised French Corrosion Institute (FCI), proving that COLORBOND® steel is highly durable, especially at the cut edges, and more resilient to scratches and scuffs during construction.

Activate™ shows superior performance to previous generation after 22 years at Bellambi Point, The Surf Marine Site.
