  • 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.
  • 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
  • For more information about NCC Colour Classification refer to: NCC Volume Two Energy Efficiency Provisions 2016
  • For more information about NSW BASIX Colour Classification refer to: BASIX Roof colour and solar absorptance
  • 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 and what constitutes Severe Marine environments, please refer to BlueScope Technical Bulletins 1A and 1B.
