  • For more information about the solar absorptance of COLORBOND® steel colours for NCC and BASIX, refer to this article on STEEL SELECT®
  • Unpainted metal coated roofs, such as ZINCALUME® steel, have a low thermal emittance so perform differently to conventional painted surfaces (high emittance) from both an energy efficiency basis and impact upon urban heating. For the purpose of NCC and NSW BASIX, ZINCALUME® steel should be considered a medium colour with SA > 0.45 (per ASTM E1980)
