Tested in the harshest Australian conditions over the last 50 years, COLORBOND® steel is far more than just 'paint on steel'.

    COLORBOND® steel
    1. The steel base is made to meet Australian Standard AS1397, ensuring strict adherence to the highest quality grade and finish of your steel.

    2. The steel base of the panels is coated with Activate® technology, BlueScope’s globally patented and industry leading metallic coating that ensures outstanding anti-corrosion performance.

    3. A thin pre-treatment layer is applied to enhance the adhesion of further coatings.

    4. A polyester primer is baked on to the surface.

    5. A topcoat of specially developed exterior grade lead-free paint (compliant with Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS2728) is baked on and will have enhanced resistance to chipping, peeling and cracking and to ensure the finish retains its look for longer.
