NEW COLORBOND® Coolmax®
New COLORBOND® Coolmax® roofing steel in the colour Whitehaven® can help to reduce cooling building energy costs by up to 7.5% compared to COLORBOND® steel in the colour Surfmist®. COLORBOND® Coolmax® steel keeps the roof cooler leading to less thermal stress.
Single story commercial buildings without air-conditioning are likely to be cooler in hot weather improving thermal comfort within the building.
An investment in Coolmax® steel can pay back the initial investment premium within five years compared to COLORBOND® steel in Surfmist® and ZINCALUME® steel.
COLORBOND® Coolmax® roofing steel is cost saving especially for commercial and industrial buildings.
COLORBOND® Coolmax® steel roofing has equivalent corrosion and paint durability performance to COLORBOND® steel but has greater solar reflectance than COLORBOND® steel.
COLORBOND® Coolmax® steel contains Thermatech® solar reflectance technology which is the same technology that is used in the standard 22 COLORBOND® steel colours.
For roofing applications, BlueScope Steel offers a warranty against corrosion to perforation by weathering in the natural elements for a period of up to 30 years from the date of installation.
BlueScope Steel also warrants that the paint system on COLORBOND® Coolmax® steel roofing will not flake or peel due to natural weathering for a period of up to 20 years from the date of installation.
BlueScope Steel recommends 'cold cutting’ the coated steel products. This will result in 'self heal'- the zinc in the surrounding coating will protect the newly exposed edge. The degree of protection depends on the thickness of the coating.
