Colour your thinking 3 Think aluminium think colour In the past Kalzip has employed differing systems for colour notation across its worldwide operations, such as NCS, BS and RAL. To simplify the specification of colour we have now standardised on the RAL system which is internationally recognised by most industries. In addition, the four digit RAL Classic range is available with RAL Digital - a special software system, available in various languages and in either PC or Mac formats. RAL Digital allows architects to introduce colour at the design concept stage and visualise the impact of colour...

4 Colour your thinking The perfect partnership The perfect partnership The maintenance free life of uncoated aluminium far exceeds that of other coated materials - a minimum of 25 years even in the most aggressive industrial or marine environments. However, the great paradox of aluminium is that, although coating is not necessary as a protective measure, as a metal it does in fact provide the perfect substrate for colour coating because it is chemically inert - the paint looks superb and it offers outstanding performance with very low maintenance. The use of ‘colour’ in the built environment is...

Brilliant colours Brilliant colours Introducing RAL RAL is the umbrella organisation of the German Quality Labelling agency which also manages the ‘Blue Angel’ badging of environmentally friendly products. The RAL CLASSIC colour collection was established 75 years ago with a range of 40 colours and today is in general use across the roofing and cladding industry offering in excess of 200 colours with a four figure notation. RAL Digital helps architects to import accurate colour into CAD design programmes and allows Kalzip roofs and walls to be ‘coloured up’ with flashings and other accessories...

Colour your thinking 7 A coating system can consist of a single layer of decorative coating but some colours and finishes may comprise two or more layers. Each coat is applied, in liquid form, by rollers and the coil is then passed through an oven to cure the coating. For certain bright finishes, where a metallic appearance is desired, it may be necessary to apply a further lacquer to give added protection. We recommend that colour decisions are based on coated metal samples. Please be aware that if a colour has not actually been run in production then it may not be possible to provide a physical...

8 Colour your thinking Brilliant colours At this point it is important to look closely at the process of choosing the most appropriate colour and finish for the project in hand. Adjustments need to be made when certain colours and finishes are chosen. This may affect the cost according to any multi-coating that may be required. It should also be noted that the coil coating line below requires a minimum of 1,000 square metres of any given colour for an economically viable production run. It is critical, at the specification stage, to seek advice from our technical department on colours and finishes...
