COLORBOND® Ultra steel
Exceptional Corrosion Resistance for Severe Environment
COLORBOND® Ultra steel is the ultimate choice for an attractive and long-lasting steel roofing material that offers excellent protection against severe environments. COLORBOND® Ultra steel has been developed primarily for environments in close vicinity of the sea, where there may still be a smell of salt or salt spray in the air. The combination of protective coatings and the production process makes it one of the most cost effective and corrosion resistant materials available.

From severe natural environments to severe industrial environments, COLORBOND® Ultra steel is one of the most effective building material discovered to combat these harsh environments. It comes with a 200 g/m2 (AZ200) metallic (55% Al-Zn alloy) coating, which means for every square metre of steel, there is a minimum of 200 gram of 55% Al-Zn alloy coating. With the higher metallic coating class and the unique protective paint system, COLORBOND® Ultra steel is one of the most cost effective building materials available for harsh environments with other benefits of paint durability as in case of COLORBOND® steel.

The Beauty of Metallic, the Durability of COLORBOND® steel

With the intelligently formulated technology of COLORBOND® steel as the basis behind development of Spectrum Series, durability is not compromised for aesthetics. The tonal spread of colours has been carefully selected to blend harmoniously with the environment, reflecting the strength and beauty of the tropics.

Designing with the Power of Light

As light gently washes over the mica particles in the metallic finish, a unique perception of depth is acquired. In addition, the mica particles create an amazing effect as the appearance of the pre-painted steel surface changes according to the varying lighting conditions and viewing angles. Whether it is creating a distinctive architectural feature or regulating the conditions of incidental lightings, COLORBOND® steel – Spectrum Series will definitely complement and enhance the aesthetic beauty of your building.

FAQ’s

What is the difference between Base Metal Thickness (BMT) and Total Coated Thickness (TCT)?

The Base Metal Thickness (BMT) measures the steel substrate prior to any metallic coating or paint being added to the substrate. The Total Coated Thickness (TCT) measures the steel substrate as well as the metallic coating, resin coating and/ or paint film. If a Tata BlueScope Steel AZ150 coated product is labeled as 0.42mm BMT means that it will have TCT of 0.47mm. If the BMT is measured at 0.48mm means that the product will have a TCT of 0.53mm. For design calculations or structural design one should use BMT since the actual strength of the material is from its base steel. The metallic coating layer provides the corrosion resistance against natural weathering.

Does the thickness of the material affect the corrosion performance of my steel roof?

It is important to note that the thickness of the material has no effect on the products corrosion resistance. The type and amount of coating mass will affect the corrosion performance of the product.

What is SRI?

The Solar Reflectance Index (SRI) is a numerical expression of a constructed surface’s ability to reflect solar heat. SRI values are derived from a calculation in ASTM E1980 which uses a roof’s solar reflectance, thermal emittance and medium wind coefficient to generate a unit-less value from 0 to 100. A standard black (reflectance 0.05, emittance 0.90) is 0 and a standard white (reflectance 0.80, emittance 0.90) is 100.

The higher SRI values indicate a roof whose surface temperature is lower, thereby reducing heat gain in the living space beneath the roof. Green building rating tools such as Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) and Malaysia’s Green Building Index (GBI) encourage using building materials with high SRI values to reduce the intensity and impact of the Urban Heat Island (UHI) effect.

SRI Values required by LEED & GBI
Roof Slope SRI
Low-Slope _ 2/12 78 or greater
Steep-Slope > 2/12 29 or greater

What is Thermatech™ technology?

A solar reflectance technology is incorporated into COLORBOND™ steel to lower surface temperature by absorbing less heat from the sun. Thermatech™ optimizes the thermal performance of every colour in the standard COLORBOND™ steel palette, without changing their appearance. Thermatech™ provides greater thermal comfort (Cool Roof) all-year round, whilst using less energy for air-conditioning and helps to mitigate the urban heat island effect.

Thermal Comfort For Your Workspace Begins Here
THERMATECH™ Solar Reflectance Technology is incorporated into COLORBOND® steel to lower temperature by absorbing less heat from the sun. COLORBOND® steel can reduce annual cooling energy consumption by up to 15%* and also reduces peak roof temperature by up to 60C**. In other words, THERMATECH™ is able to increase the Solar Reflectance Index (SRI) of roofing material.
