In the construction of a meaningful and artistically designed building, there are materials that support such a purpose. COLORBOND® is a pre-painted steel product from PT NS BlueScope Indonesia, known for its innovation that transforms architecture into a masterpiece with its beauty and durability. For over 50 years, the excellence of COLORBOND® has been tested and recognized as a premium choice for commercial, industrial, residential, and infrastructure buildings, and has become a benchmark for the excellence of the global steel industry.

What The Difference COLORBOND® Matt from other coated steel products?


Not inferior to other COLORBOND® products, Matte Finish comes with a 30-year corrosion resistance feature warranty. The advantages of COLORBOND Matte Finish are as follows:


  1. Longer Color Durability Guarantee

Providing better color performance with a color warranty of up to 12 years, COLORBOND® Matte Finish ensures stronger material protection and maintains the beauty of the building for a longer period.


  1. Cutting-Edge Technology

The Clean Technology used in COLORBOND® Matte provides an anti-dust and anti-dirt system that minimizes routine maintenance. Additionally, the Thermatech technology acts as solar reflection, reducing the average temperature on the steel surface by up to 6 degrees Celsius.


  1. Paint System Innovation

The Paint System Innovation of COLORBOND® Matte results in a specular reflection reduction of up to 7 Gloss Units (GU), placing COLORBOND® Matte in the low gloss material category. Low gloss is also beneficial in reducing glare effects from the building. Generally, the circulating steel materials in Indonesia have a GU level of around 80 GU.


  1. Application in Aviation and Urban Building Areas

COLORBOND® Matte enhances the benefits of steel materials as it falls under the low gloss material category, meeting the exterior steel criteria for buildings in aviation and densely populated urban areas.


  1. Easy to Match

The matte finish appearance and natural colors provide limitless design inspiration for matching COLORBOND® Matt® steel material with conventional materials (wood, brick, natural stone, and others), creating harmony between the building design and the surrounding environment.
