Editorial information

Welcome to STEEL PROFILE® 126

We at BlueScope know that great architects constantly seek to differentiate their buildings with leading-edge materials. Likewise, we ceaselessly strive to develop new and refine products that allow you to create buildings that exemplify contemporary design.

This year, we have an exciting new evolution in the form of COLORBOND® steel Matt – featuring new paint technology designed to diffuse light reflection for an elegantly soft, matt finish. Available in five neutral colours, this contemporary finish offers a sophisticated twist, which alongside our existing COLORBOND® steel range, provides even greater design flexibility.

Like other forms of COLORBOND® steel, COLORBOND® steel Matt is backed by warranties of up to 36 years for peace-of-mind*. COLORBOND® steel Matt is manufactured with metallic coating incorporating Activate® technology to provide enhanced corrosion resistance, along with Thermatech® solar reflectance technology which is designed to reflect more of the suns heat on hot sunny days.

If you’d like to discuss COLORBOND® steel Matt – or any of our building products – our nation-wide team of specification experts is at hand to provide technical advice and help you bring your design inspirations to life on 1800 064 384.

Every project is different and not all products are suitable for all applications, projects and environments. Some products may perform better than others in certain applications and conditions. You should confirm the suitability of particular products for your project by contacting the supplier directly and by obtaining information and advice specific to your circumstances.
