Available in Nailstrip and Interlocking profiles, your clients will delight in the vertically grooved style while your team will appreciate the ease of installation.

Superior corrosion protection

Unicote LUX products are painted onto an AM150 metallic coating, providing superior corrosion protection. They are humidity resistant and meet the requirements of Australian Standards for salt spray. This means that Midnight Matte can be offered with stronger warranties for properties closer to the water, making it ideal for coastal living.

Why Unicote LUX

Unicote LUX is a luxury pre-painted patterned steel product, combining the world’s best coil coating technology with rigorous Australian Standards testing. Under normal well washed conditions of exposure, Unicote LUX can be expected to show no cracking, flaking or peeling of the paint film for 20 years from the time of installation.

Favoured by Australian architects and designers for its innovative design and performance, the result is an extremely durable, patterned paint system with exceptional colour and gloss retention compared with standard paint systems. Unicote LUX is built to resist UV damage from Australia’s harsh sun.
