HIGH TEMPERATURE PERFORMANCE
Galvalume steel resists intermediate and high temperatures far more effectively than galvanized
Specifically, Galvalume steel shows no discoloration up to 315°C (600°F) during continuous or intermittent
exposure over a prolonged period. Above this temperature, some discoloration does occur and roughening of the surface is possible.
Neither this discoloration nor roughening, however, reduces Galvalume's resistance to rust. Galvalume maintains its rust-resistance
up to 675°C (1,250°F).
Additionally, Galvalume has excellent heat reflectivity, up to operating temperatures of about
315°C (600°F). This heat reflectivity makes a building cooler inside on hot, sunny days.
