More than ever, the building industry is facing change. Our climate is changing as are building regulations. Sites are more varied and building usage is continually evolving. Together with an increasing focus on sustainability and resilience, buildings are placing ever greater demands on construction materials.

ZINCALUME® steel has set a benchmark within Australian building for generations. So when we decided to raise the bar we made absolutely sure our product would perform beyond expectations. Our next generation ZINCALUME® steel has been developed over almost 20 years and rigorously tested under both real world and accelerated conditions.

The result is next generation ZINCALUME® steel with patented Activate™ technology, arriving mid 2013. It's more durable and more efficient than ever before. And with a smaller environmental footprint*.


*Compared to original ZINCALUME® steel (AZ150 coating) in all LCA environmental impact categories when used in Commercial & Industrial roofing applications. This improvement is the result of innovation in the metal coating formulation that delivers an increased lifespan while using fewer metal resources.
