Permalite® Finishes and Colours
The stylish solution for the toughest conditions. Just because your project demands a cladding solution which delivers outstanding durability in an aggressive environment doesn’t mean you have to compromise on important aesthetic qualities.
Permalite® products are available in a variety of finishes, profiles and colours. All our cladding profiles can be specified in a choice of three finishes.
- Mill Finish – An unpainted smooth, lustrous finish which will dull relatively quickly and enhances corrosion resistance.
- Stucco Finish – Stucco embossed mill finish, which reduces the specular reflectance of mill finish sheet.
- Painted Finish – A range of quality painted finishes are available.
Our roof and wall sheet may be supplied pre-painted on one or both sides. Aluminium provides an excellent painting base for paint systems. Before roll forming, the paint is applied to the coiled sheet by reverse roller coating and heat curing on paint lines employing the latest painting technology.
The new generation Polyester paints have outstanding colour and gloss retention characteristics. This, coupled with their resistance to scratching during transportation and installation; make these paints suitable for the majority of severe marine and industrial environments. Polyester paint systems have been extensively tested in Australia’s tough environment over many years.
In certain applications fluorocarbon paints may offer improved colour and gloss retention levels over polyester paints. However fluorocarbon paints have a lower scratch resistance and as such are more susceptible to damage during transportation and installation. This needs to be considered against the additional cost of these paint systems.
Most standard Colorbond® steel colours are available based on minimum order quantities of 2.5 tonne. Other colours are available on application with minimum order quantities and extended lead times. For larger projects custom colours may be available by negotiation.
Our standard colour range includes:

However, we recommend checking your chosen colour against an actual sample of the product before purchasing, as varying light conditions and limitations of the printing process affect colour tones.
