These two durable roofing forms have become some of the most attractive roofs on the market today. When deciding which product to use, it can be helpful to know how they differ. To help you choose the best option for your roof, there are things you need to know about Colorbond and Zincalume.
Corbond steel is a popular roofing material ,it is safe, durable and energy efficient.Created in the mid-19th century, Colorbond is the solution for corrugated roofs. Corrugated roofs are strong and durable, but are prone to corrosion and therefore require regular painting. In response, Colorbond steel was created as a better alternative.
Since its introduction in Australia in 1966, Colorbond has become one of the most attractive roofing materials. As a pre-painted steel with a Zincalume core, Colorbond is both strong and lightweight.
Corrugated aluminium and zinc steel sheets are made from hot-dipped aluminium and zinc coated coils, which are rolled into a variety of corrugated sheets, with a hardness of G550 (≥HRB85) for the steel material. The number of corrugated crests and troughs for each size was rigorously checked. The diagonals of each sheet are identical and equal. The thickness, width and number of crests and troughs are very strict and have been confirmed for each order. There are far fewer joint areas and no gaps in the installation process.
Corrugated aluminium and zinc steel sheets are mainly used in industrial and civil buildings, warehouses, light industry, special buildings, agriculture, etc., especially for roof panels and wall decoration in civil buildings.
