Tata BlueScope Steel Launches Thermatech™ Solar Reflectance Technology in COLORBOND® Steel

Thermatech Colorbond

Tata BlueScope Steel introduced Thermatech™ technology with COLORBOND® steel, its flagship coated steel brand, at the Roof India in Chennai. Thermatech™ technology in COLORBOND® steel helps lower surface temperature by reflecting more solar heat, thereby reducing the heat radiation travelling downwards into the building. Thus keeping both the roof and interior of the building cooler.

This trend setting product was launched by Mr. H. E. Sriprakash Shastry, Partner Aswathanarayana & Eswara LLP, Chennai. "COLORBOND® steel with advanced Thermatech™ solar reflectance technology offers an improved level of thermal performance. It provides designers/ architects with an appropriate building material option to help fulfil their design brief as well as achieve their sustainability objective. The best part is that even with introduction of Thermatech™ paint technology the properties of COLORBOND® steel including its long term performance are not compromised," said Mr. Shastry at the launch.

"All roofs made with COLORBOND® steel now incorporate the new Thermatech™ technology. The technology will boost the thermal performance of every colour of COLORBOND® steel without changing its appearance. COLORBOND® steel gives the building industry more than what it wants – a wider range of thermal efficient colours and even greater durability because of the reduced heat stress on the entire roofing system," said Mr. Mahendra Pingle, DGM, Market Development – Coated Steel, during the launch.

Thermatech™ technology in COLORBOND® steel, reduces the temperature inside the building by up to 6°C in hot weather, depending upon the level of insulation already installed, thus reducing the need for air conditioning. In moderate to hot climates, it can reduce annual cooling energy consumption by up to 15% as compared to roofing materials of similar colour with low solar reflectance. (The average reduction is about 5%: results differ depending on the level of insulation, building shape and function). The technology also helps mitigate the Urban Heat Island (UHI) effect. The company has further expanded its colour range by adding 5 new colours with the high SRI values other than Surfmist (SRI-81), these include Mosaic Blue (SRI-82), Aloe Green (SRI-82), Fantasy Yellow (SRI-82), Neutral Beige (SRI-80) & Ivory Grey (SRI-80).

Mr. Riten Choudhury, Managing Director, Tata BlueScope Steel Limited says, "COLORBOND® steel with Thermatech™ solar reflectance technology sets a new benchmark in the industry and provides property owners, architects, builders and developers with a better building material option to keep pace with the changing need of the hour. The launch of this technology is a step towards creating a future that is comfortable not just for people but the environment too."

COLORBOND® steel with Thermatech™ technology is manufactured at Tata BlueScope Steel's coated steel manufacturing facility in Jamshedpur. COLORBOND® steel has been one of the core building materials for over 40 years across the world. It offers elegant colour, design versatility, lightweight strength and durability making it a favourite for architects, developers, builders, designers and the public alike.
