Colorplus® technological innovations in colour coating

January 11, 2021

Colorplus® has been developed in South Africa as a premium product to endure South Africa’s harshest climates, ensuring your building will have a considerable increase in service life, superior thermal protection, added aesthetic value, cost-effectiveness and eco-friendly credentials.

Many years of research and development with our paint partners has resulted in a paint process that satisfies all the demands placed on steel roofing in the 21st century.

Innovative pigments used in the paint have been carefully selected to withstand our specific environments, so they retain a fresh appearance for many years with reduced chalking or fading. Advances in pre-painted coating technology means that our modified polyesters resist dirt, ensuring your building stays cleaner and therefore fresher for longer.

Colorplus® is available in a variety of vibrant colours. Adding colour not only offers aesthetic appeal, but also increases solar reflection. Tests have proven that based on the colour spectrum, light colours offer a higher reflectance compared to dark colours.

How coated steel works

Steel is coated with protective alloys which protect the inner steel core from corrosion that is caused by exposure to the elements or pollutants borne in air and water. The longer lasting the protective coating, the longer lasting the life of the inner steel core.

Aluminium-zinc coating alloy is one of the most widely used worldwide to deliver an extended service life to steel sheeting. Gram for gram, it provides considerably longer service life than a traditional zinc galvanising.

Our metal-coated steel sheeting is sold as Zincal®. Colour-coated Zincal® is factory pre-painted and sold as Colorplus® in an array of colours that are both beautiful and durable.

Coated steel sheeting is widely used for residential purposes, for industrial applications (warehouses, manufacturing plants etc.), a huge range of commercial uses including shopping centres, showrooms, airports and public building, and in the agricultural sector, such as storage sheds, packing lines and more.

Benefits of using pre-painted/colour-coated steel sheets for your roof:

• Lightweight
• Fire resistant
• Weatherproof
• Highly durable
• Easy to install
• Eco-friendly
• Energy reflective
• More secure against intrusion through the roof
• Aesthetically appealing


With its balance between cost and quality, UV resistance and corrosion resistance, hardness and flexibility, Colorplus® is redefining the pre-painted coated steel sector.
