COLORBOND® steel’s 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.

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. 

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

  • 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.
