Cool rooms are designed and constructed with cooling, chiller or freezing systems for processing, preserving and storing goods over an extended time and prolonging their quality. The materials for the sandwich panel not only need to meet requirements for aesthetics and insulation, but also need to have the durability required to withstand this harsh environment.

COLORBOND® for Panel - Cool Room with Activate™ technology - the unique 4 phases microstructure in Vietnam, with a coating mass thickness of up to 150g/m2 is specially customized for cool rooms. Product advantages include: Improving surface corrosion resistance; Enhancing anti-corrosion at cut edges in both washed and unwashed areas. This is also the first product line to offer perforation warranty periods of up to 10 years for cool room application.

Clean Rooms are spaces where parameters such as dust, bacteria content, temperature, humidity, and pressure are all controlled and limited to strict requirements, helping to minimize the most particles in the air, on surfaces and thereby ensuring that research, fabrication, and production processes can be protected from contamination.

In light of customer needs, NS BlueScope Vietnam develops COLORBOND ® for Panel – Clean Room. Not only inheriting the leading technologies of BlueScope, this specialized product line is also 99.9% surface antibacterial thanks to S.T.A.R.Vi Technology, which works to kill surface bacteria, inhibit the development and proliferation of bacteria, both Gram (-) and (+). The antimicrobial effect of COLORBOND® for Panel – Clean Room was also tested by the SGS Center compliant to JIS Z2801:2012 (Japanese Standard).

The industry is now trending towards solutions with fast installation times, non-baked building materials with high energy efficiency. The sandwich panel is the optimal choice that meets the durability and aesthetic requirements for any project’s roofing, partitions, and wall cladding.

COLORBOND® for Panel – Architectural Wall was developed by NS BlueScope Vietnam specifically for sandwich panel projects with high requirements for durability and aesthetics. The product uses a superior durable paint system that provides superior color fading resistance, chalking, stain resistance and gloss retention even under harsh conditions, ensuring a long-lasting and vivid color. Special formulated durable polyester paint system ensures up to 10 years warranty for paint color fading and peel off, ensuring the longevity of buildings, and keeping its aesthetics over time. Especially, the metallic colour with signature lustre effect creates a unique perception of depth and stunning aesthetic qualities.

In particular, all three product lines are integrated with Stick+ Foam backer coating specially formulated for sandwich panel application, which provides optimal adhesion to the insulation layer. At the same time, the alloy-coated steel surface has GLOSS SURFACE 25 percent PERFECT FOR PANEL APPLICATION which helps to reduce the glare and visibility of surface damage, creating a flatter feel and look when compared to conventional high gloss products (45-60 percent).

The aforementioned three solutions will be available at NS BlueScope Vietnam's distributor's network nationwide and we are ready to serve the specialized needs of investors.
