Colour coding is used to distinguish different types of steel based on their unique metallurgical properties. Generally categorised into carbon steels and alloy steels, Edcon Steel’s range of steel products have varying combinations of carbon, iron and other elements.
Our steel colour coding for grade guide can be interpreted using the following:
Grades refers to the relevant Australian (or international) standard, which sets out the composition, mechanical properties, tolerances on dimension and manufacture method.
Colour refers to the colour of paint that we’ve applied to the end of the steel product.
Signet code (name and number) is the paint manufacturer’s unique name and product code. This helps to ensure that we apply the same and correct colour paint to our material each and every time we receive a new stock delivery.
Each individual steel grade has a guide that outlines the properties of that product.

While we endeavour to be as accurate as possible with our steel colour coding, we always recommend checking your product before commencing any further works.
We know metal and steel – and we know our customers appreciate our service and stockholding, so feel free to contact us for your steel or metal solution today.
