Wall cladding and roofing products made from COLORBOND® steel deliver a beautiful design option for an exterior façade or as an internal feature walling to match any mood or environment. Manufactured to Australian Standards (AS1397 and AS/NZS 2728) and tested in Australian conditions over the last 50 years, COLORBOND® steel is a superior finish for your Cladding and Roofing products.
COLORBOND® steel’s new Matt finish offers a softer look in neutral tones, allowing you to make a sophisticated and personal design statement. COLORBOND® steel Matt provides you with the flexibility to realise your design vision. This contemporary finish offers a sophisticated twist, which alongside our existing COLORBOND® steel range provides even greater design opportunities.
Choosing softer, more neutral colours adds a designer touch to the appearance of your home. The new COLORBOND® steel Matt allows you to make stylish and defining design choices for modern home exteriors. Choose from five of COLORBOND® steel’s neutral colours; Surfmist®, Shale Grey™, Dune®, Basalt®, and Monument® to make your design statement. Tested for over a decade, COLORBOND® steel Matt has been designed to withstand our harsh Australian environment. The result is a product which maintains its Matt finish, looking even better for longer.
COLORBOND® steel – MONUMENT® provides a striking finish as shown in the image below for a residential project in Melbourne. Our Standing Seam metal cladding provides an aesthetically pleasing finish whilst avoiding the industrial finishes found in more recent standing seam systems. One of the most versatile cladding systems available, whether it is for roofing or facade type applications. Standing Seam metal cladding requires two panel seams to lap each other. Each panel is secured with our concealed clips and then crimped securely together with the use of specialised tools.
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.

MAINTENANCE FOR AN AMAZING FINISH EVERY TIME WITH COLORBOND® STEEL:
Simple maintenance of COLORBOND® steel by regular washing with clean, fresh water will not only prolong its life but also maintain its attractiveness for longer periods thus protecting your asset.
Applications where the paint finish is naturally washed by rainwater do not usually require this maintenance, e.g. our roofing products. However, some areas such as wall cladding under eaves are often not washed by rainwater, and so require some attention.
Ensure these ‘unwashed’ areas are hosed down at least every six months and more frequently in coastal areas where marine salt spray is prevalent, and in areas where high levels of industrial fallout occur. It is also important to ensure that there is no build-up of debris, such as soil and mulch against COLORBOND® steel products.
If cared for in this way, your walling, cladding and roofing products made from COLORBOND® steel and supplied by Architectural Cladding Suppliers should give many years of simple maintenance life.

THERMAL EFFICIENCY WITH COLORBOND® STEEL:
Every colour (except Night Sky®) in the standard COLORBOND® steel range features Thermatech® solar reflectance technology. Thermatech® technology is designed to reflect more of the sun’s heat on hot days, which can mean less dependence on air-conditioning, plus reduced heat stress for your roof. This makes COLORBOND® steel a great choice for your projects, your budget and the environment.
