Products - Chromadek
The importance of the steel substrate
Chromadek® is the roofing and cladding material of choice made by architects, designers, industry and homeowners renowned for its aesthetic value, protection from the natural elements and the ease of application complimenting any building.
Chromadek® is produced with a minimum zinc coating of Z200 and Chromadek Ultim® in Z275
The topcoat paint system has been specifically developed for the harsh African sun (UV environment).
Ongoing paint development has led to four heat reflective Chromadek® and Chromadek Ultim® colours.
Heat Reflective Properties
Four Chromadek® colours, Charcoal Grey, Dark Dolphin, Traffic Green and Buffalo Brown, are produced by utilising an advanced thermal technology paint system. This advanced paint system incorporates a heat reflective pigment providing an up to 8°C cooler benefit along with improved paint system durability. The paint system durability is measured according to its capability to maintain gloss, colour and film integrity.
Where annual cooling loads dominate, a highly reflective and highly emissive colour coated steel roof is optimal for reducing energy consumption. Where annual heating loads dominate, an unpainted galvanised steel roof is more desirable because of its low infrared emittance.
Make the Chromadek® choice, the heat reflective benefit is a reality through
- Lessened peak loads on energy consumption
- Improved roof durability, less thermal cycling leads to constant temperature
- Reduced air conditioning usage & costs
- Reduced heating consumption & costs
- Improved thermal comfort
Chromadek colour choices
Chromadek® has the following advantages:
- Improved edge protection
- Less prone to formability cracking that could lead to corrosion problems
