– ZINCALUME® steel is a premium metallic-coated steel product, that has a silver, base metal finish, to suit all building types.
– It is slightly cheaper in comparison to COLORBOND® however, this is not reflective of the standard of material.
– COLORBOND® is a premium bonded colour coated steel product, that comes in a range of colour options to suit the external appearance of any property.
– Has very high thermal efficiency, since it absorbs less heat and cools more quickly and is very light and quite flexible – this makes it very popular for roofing and other construction jobs. This along with the fact that it is also resistant to cracking, peeling and chipping makes it a very popular type of steel.
So…that brings us to the question, ‘what is the difference between COLORBOND® and ZINCALUME®?’
These two types of steel are very popular in the construction industry and there are several differences and similarities between them. The most obvious difference is that COLORBOND® is painted while ZINCALUME® is not. Whats your preference?
