COLORSTEEL Matte
Description

COLORSTEEL Matte offers a refined, elegant aesthetic through an innovative new paint technology, specially designed to diffuse light for a soft textured look. An ideal solution for roofing and wall cladding systems that demand a contemporary and sophisticated style. COLORSTEEL Matte incorporates microwrinkle technology to create a more textured finish with both subtlety and depth.

Unlike gloss, semi-gloss or even low-gloss surfaces, COLORSTEEL Matte has a soft, textured aesthetic and a depth of colour not seen in other products.

This new innovation provides the same quality expected from all other COLORSTEEL products — it is made, tested and trusted for New Zealand conditions.

  • Available as either ENDURA or MAXX
  • Available in three colours: FlaxPod, TidalDrift, and SnowStone
  • COLORSTEEL Matte is ideal for roofing, cladding, fascia, rainwater goods and garage panel door applications
