Why James Hardie?
PVC cladding vs Fibre cement cladding
Timber cladding vs fibre cement cladding
However good your build: sun, wind, rain and time are the worst enemies of any exterior finish. Get the looks and coverage that will last with our range of ColourPlus™ Technology finishes. Specifically formulated to give you a low maintenance, durable exterior, our multi-coat, baked on finish.
Find the perfect ColourPlus™ Technology finish to match your design. Choose from a palette of appealing colours offering up to 30% better fade resistance (soure: James Hardie Weatherometer testing)
Innovation is at the core of everything we do and the James Hardie ColourPlus™ Technology finish represents a revolutionary breakthrough. It took more than four years of development and over 2,000 tested formulas to achieve the perfect result: a durable, low-maintenance, better fade resistant finish that lasts. This helps eliminate stress and reduces costly weather delays. With ColourPlus™ Technology there’s no reason to worry whether sub-optimal painting conditions will impact your paint job, as is the case with on-site applied paint.
Fade resistance – lasting colours
Our exclusive paint comes in a range of stunning hues, from rich browns to classic creams. ColourPlus™ Technology has been engineered to better withstand the sun’s damaging, ultraviolet rays, providing up to 30% more fade resistance than many alternative cladding finishes and paint that’s applied on-site.
Application consistency – constant colours
Our proprietary manufacturing process provides the most consistent paint application at the optimal thickness. We apply multiple coats of our exclusive fibre cement paint. ColourPlus™ Technology finishes are fully cured in a controlled environment and arrive on your job site ready for year-round installation.
Eco-friendly choice – ‘green’ colours
Our ColourPlus™ Technology finishes are the eco-friendly choice over on-site applied paint. They help you make your job site a healthier place to be: colours are baked on in our factory, so there are no harmful or volatile organic compounds on the job site.
Installing James Hardie fibre cement products with ColourPlus™ Technology finishes means you’re choosing the low maintenance solution that requires less repainting. It’s an easy way to cut back on materials that otherwise end up in landfill.
