Superior colour performance
COLORBOND® Steel has 5 layers of protection producing one of the finest and most durable coatings to meet the harsh and varied environment of Australian weather conditions.
Steel Base

The steel base is manufactured to meet relevant Australian Standards, ensuring strict adherence to the required grade and strength.

Metallic Coating

The base is then coated in BlueScope’s industry leading metallic coating incorporating Activate® technology*, to provide enhanced corrosion resistance.


A thin pre-treatment 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.

Coating process benefits
COLORBOND® is applied to the metal by roller coating; an accurately controlled application with consistent tolerances, far superior to powder coating. This ensures your outdoor living area is protected with a roof which will withstand the harsh elements and resist fading over time.
corrosion resistant

Built to withstand the harsh Australian outdoors, it features highly efficient, active metallic coating which provides superior corrosion resistance of the coated product via two strategically positioned Magnesium compounds.

colour retention

One of the finest and most durable modern coatings available.

smooth finish

Roller coating allows for a consistently smooth finish every time compared to powder coating.

Superior high gloss

Higher gloss coatings offer more vibrant colour, enhance fade resistance and easy maintenance.


COLORBOND® assessment program is designed to replicate buildings applications in Australian conditions. High gloss coatings have high reflection capabilities, resulting in a longer lasting surface and reduce heat transfer. Results have clearly demonstrated they exceed Australian testing standards for steel building products.
