COLORBOND® steel – The Perfect Choice For Your Metal Cladding

Posted inOur News

COLORBOND® steel makes the perfect choice for your metal cladding.

Fifty years of research and development has created a range of technologies that give COLORBOND® steel its long lasting performance when subjected to Australian weather conditions. Always check for the ink branding on the reverse side of the sheet with ‘COLORBOND® steel made by BlueScope’ printed on the material to ensure you are receiving the real thing.

The key benefits of the COLORBOND® steel finish comprise:

  • The steel base is manufactured to meet relevant Australian Standards, ensuring strict adherence to the required grade and strength.
  • The base is then coated in BlueScope’s industry leading metallic coating incorporating Activate® technology*, to provide enhanced corrosion resistance.
  • A thin pretreatment layer is applied to optimise the adhesion of further coatings.
  • A corrosion inhibitive primer is baked onto the surface.
  • A topcoat of specially developed, exterior grade paint is baked on to provide resistance to chipping, flaking and blistering and to ensure the finish retains its look for longer.
