Colour For The Extreme

COLORSTEEL® MAXX ™ is built tough and designed smart for great looks that last. With a choice of exciting designer colours from the subtle to the dramatic, COLORSTEEL® MAXX ™ prepainted steel has drawn from New Zealand’s environment to reflect the hues of nature.

From snow covered mountains to the demands of the beach, the COLORSTEEL® MAXX ™ prepainted steel colour range complements these environments and uses a new Super Polyester paint – coating technology that’s proven to look newer for longer.

COLORSTEEL® MAXX ™ prepainted steel is made touch to withstand harsh New Zealand conditions. One of the most demanding of building environments is the rugged coastline.

High concentrations of salt in the atmosphere challenge all but the toughest building materials. COLORSTEEL® MAXX ™ prepainted steel has been specifically developed for buildings erected 100m from surf beaches on the West Coast.

A ZINCALUME® alloy coating is applied to the steel of each COLORSTEEL® MAXX ™ prepainted steel sheet. The zinc and aluminium in the ZINCALUME® steel coating combine to provide both stable corrosion protection overall and galvanic protection on cut edges. In conjunction with the primer and top paint coats, this means the investment in your new roof will be assured for many years to come.
