Surface Damage

Touch up paint is not recommended to repair surface scratches on COLORBOND® steel. 

The different weathering pattern of touch up paint
will lead to an inconsistent colour across the sheet's surface.  It is recommended that damaged sheets be replaced.

If the COLORBOND® steel sheet is only scratched back
to the ZINCALUME® steel coating, leave the scratch bare,
as the sacrificial properties of Zinc will produce an oxide to protect the surface from corrosion.

If the sheet is scratched back to the cold rolled metal base
and the scratch is greater than 2mm wide, sacrificial protection will be reduced and those sheets should be replaced.

From rebar and welded mesh, to barbed wire, chain link fencing, water tanks, wheelbarrows and nails, purchasing from a manufacturer and consolidating your shipping,
will result in significant savings against standard retail purchases.

By making prudent arrangements regarding the shipping container, your material security and product availability
will save on your production time.
