What is Colorbond?

Colorbond is a pre-painted steel product that is available in a range of colors and can be formed onto many different profiles. It is made by BlueScope Steel, an Australian steel company that has been in operation for over 100 years and can be roll formed by companies such as Stramit. Colorbond is made from high-quality steel that gets coated with a layer of specialty paint that is designed to last the test of time. This makes it an excellent choice for roofing sheets, roof gutters, and other building applications.

Colorbond can be used for a wide range of applications such as roof sheets, garage doors, sheds, patios, fencing, water tanks, and more. Colorbond can be cut to size, and it is available in a range of profiles and colors. It can be folded using industrial folders into many different shapes and has the advantage of being easy to roll form.

Durability and Reliability

Colorbond is a product that is designed to last. It has been tested in laboratories and Australian weather conditions, including rain, hail, snow, and the intense heat of the Australian sunshine. Testing has shown that Colorbond is resistant to fading, chipping, and cracking. This rigorous testing system ensures that it can withstand extreme weather conditions. In addition, it is a low-maintenance product that does not require painting, making it an excellent choice for those who want a building material that is both durable as well as easy to maintain.

Recent Additions to the Color Range

Colorbond is constantly updating its great range of colors to reflect the latest design trends and customer preferences. The most recent additions to the color range are Dover White™, Southerly®, and Bluegum®. These colors were created & inspired by the unique Australian landscape and offer a fresh while modern look that is perfect for any roofing project.

Choosing the Right Color

Choosing the right color for your Colorbond project is an important decision. Colorbond offers a range of 22 main colors, and each color has a different finish and profile. When choosing a color, it is important to consider the surrounding landscape, the style of the building, and the overall design of the project. Colorbond provides a visualizer tool on their website, which allows you to experiment with different colors and finishes to find the perfect fit for your project.

What is Colorbond XRW?

Colorbond XRW is a new and improved version of Colorbond that has been designed to withstand harsh coastal and industrial environments. Colorbond XRW is commonly referred to just as standard “Colorbond”. Colorbond XRW features a high-quality steel substrate coated with a corrosion-resistant ZINCALUME® steel layer on both sides of the sheet. This layering provides excellent corrosion resistance, while the paint on top provides additional protection as well as a great aesthetic appeal. With this combination of zincalume and paint, Colorbond XRW is highly durable and long-lasting.
