  • The colours shown have been reproduced to represent actual product colours as accurately as possible. However, we recommend checking your chosen colour against an actual sample of the product as varying light conditions, screens and devices may affect colour tones and finishes.
  • We recommend contacting your preferred supplier to confirm colour availability for your selected product and the most suitable material for your project.
  • These solar absorptance values are nominal values based on new product. Solar absorptance has been measured in accordance with ASTM E 903-96, ‘Standard test method for solar absorptance, reflectance and transmittance of materials using integrating spheres’. Solar absorptance is a thermal property and is not suitable for evaluation of visual impacts. For further information refer to BlueScope Technical Bulletin TB 28 - Building Materials, Thermal Efficiency and Reflectivity
  • ZINCALUME® steel is not included in the Tables above. Unpainted metal coated roofs, such as ZINCALUME® steel, have a low thermal emittance so perform differently to conventional painted surfaces (high emittance) from both an energy efficiency basis and impact upon urban heating. For the purpose of NCC and NSW BASIX ZINCALUME® steel should be considered a medium colour with SA > 0.45 (per ASTM E1980).
  • For more information about NCC Colour Classification refer to: NCC 2019: Volume One, Part J1.3(b); NCC 2019: Volume Two, Part 3.12.1.2
  • For more information about NSW BASIX Colour Classification refer to: BASIX Roof colour and solar absorptance
  • For more information about the solar absorptance of COLORBOND® steel colours for NCC and BASIX refer to this article on STEEL SELECT®
     
  1. Compared to conventional roofing materials of lower reflectance index (SRI), such as ZINCALUME® steel and all other roofing materials in the COLORBOND® steel range. The extent to which a building is cooler may vary and depend upon the particular circumstances of your building, including building location, level of insulation, location of air-conditioning when installed, building shape, building function and environmental factors. For further information refer to Stockland case study.
  2. For further guidance on choosing the right product for your project please refer to BlueScope Technical Bulletins 1A and 1B.
