JamesHardie HardiePlank Colours – colour you can depend on.
JamesHardie HardiePlank fibre cement cladding is produced in a range of twenty-one colours. Hardie have developed ColourPlus finishes, formulated to minimise the maintenance on their HardiePlank fibre cement boards. Cladding products have to endure the ravages of sun, wind and rain – the enemies of any exterior product. ColourPlus is a multi-coat paint finish which is baked on for durability.
HardiePlank Colours – lasting constant colours and application consistency
James Hardie’s exclusive ColourPlus paints are available in a range of colour hues, from classic creams to cool blues and other shades in-between. ColourPlus has been developed by James Hardie for better resistance to the sun’s damaging, ultraviolet rays. James Hardie suggest that ColourPlus paints provide up to 30% more fade resistance than many alternative cladding finishes and paint that’s applied on-site.
The manufacturing process also helps to ensure a consistent paint application at the optimal thickness. Hardie’s specification means multiple coats of their exclusive fibre cement paint are applied. After this application the ColourPlus finishes are fully cured in a controlled environment and are delivered to site ready for year-round installation.
ColourPlus finishes – the Eco-friendly option
The ColourPlus finish can be considered the eco-friendly option over paint finishes that are applied at the build site. Because the colour finishes are baked onto the fibre cement in James Hardie’s factory there are no harmful or volatile organic compounds. This can only help make the work-site a healthier place to be. Weather delays should no longer be such a concern. With ColourPlus there’s virtually no reason why adverse painting conditions will impact the painting process. Fewer weather delays should mean less stress than installs using on-site applied paint.
