SA = Solar Absorptance

Solar Absorptance (SA) is a measure of how much of the sun’s heat that a material absorbs. Choosing a colour with a lower SA is a cooler option and may help to meet building regulations such as NCC or BASIX. These are nominal values based on new product and measured in accordance with ASTM E 903-96. For further information refer to BlueScope Technical Bulletin TB 39 Thermal performance of roofing materials.

Notes:
  • The colours shown have been reproduced to represent actual product colours as accurately as possible. However, we recommend checking the chosen colour against an actual sample of the product before specifying, as varying light conditions, screens and devices may affect colour tones and finishes.
  • For information about NCC Colour Classification refer to: NCC 2019: Volume One, Part J1.3(b); NCC 2019: Volume Two, Part 3.12.1.2
  • For information about NSW BASIX Colour Classification refer to: BASIX Roof colour and solar absorptance
  • 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).
  1. Core palette colours vary according to end application
  2. Results will depend on roof colour, level and location of insulation, type and location of building shape and function.
  3. For further guidance on choosing the right product for your project please refer to BlueScope Technical Bulletins 1A and 1B. Absolute performance is subject to local conditions including, but not limited to, prevailing winds, and presence of unwashed areas. Distance is as measured from the high water/tide mark.
