After launching a few years ago, Activate™ – a unique four-phase alloy-coated technology – has revitalised the domestic industry by establishing a new standard in anti-corrosion applications, which enhances building protection even in the most severe conditions, including marine and polluted environments, achieving a long-lasting and sustainable aesthetic.
Let's look at the trendsetters applying this technology in Việt Nam.
Truong Hai Factory - Quang Nam
Green factories were one of the essential criteria for THACO when building the THACO Chu Lai Industrial Park. During the construction of the factory, THACO chose materials and solutions matching the criteria of "green" buildings, such as insulation, preventing solar radiation, and being recyclable and reusable while ensuring high energy efficiency.
THACO's projects use high-quality, alloy-coated COLORBOND® and ZINCALUME® steel integrated with Activate™ technology from NS BlueScope Vietnam for the roofing and walling of the buildings.
These two product lines help boost the project's beauty and reduce maintenance costs while retaining superior colour durability. "BlueScope's materials meet all our standards and requirements for green criteria when building a factory," said a representative of THACO.

BW Hai Phong
With a strategic location next to Hai Phong port – the maritime gateway of the North – to provide 800 to 10,000 square meters of warehouses despite the harsh conditions and corrosion of a marine environment, BW has issued strict requirements for construction materials, which must ensure the durability, beauty and longevity of the project. BW has selected COLORBOND® steel with Activate™ technology for the building to withstand the corrosion of the marine environment.

Long Son Petrochemical Complex Project
Among projects that have trusted BlueScope's high-quality steel integrated with Activate™ technology, it is necessary to mention the Long Son petrochemical complex project invested by SCG Group (Thailand) with a total registered capital of about 5.4 billion USD.
This location is a "dual" combination of corrosive elements, including the marine and chemical environments. Therefore, the building has strict requirements for the materials making up the cover system. COLORBOND® steel with Activate™ technology is the optimal choice for investors, helping to maintain the sustainable beauty of the building in this extreme environment.

Goertek Vina Factory
In early 2021, Goertek Vina – a member of Goertek Corporation, a high-tech corporation operating in the field of research, development and production of smart devices, invested 100 million USD in building a factory in Nghe An.
Goertek Vina is interested in creating sustainable projects over time, anti-fading or made based on energy-saving trends to increase investment efficiency, ensuring production operations and equipment quality.
The company has chosen the new generation of high-grade COLORBOND® steel integrated with BlueScope's Activate™ technology for the Goertek factory to meet its strict requirements and those of the design company.

Deli Stationery Factory - Bac Ninh
Famous global stationery brand Deli also chooses steel with Activate™ technology for the roofing and walling of its factory with a scale of 110,000 square meters in Bac Ninh. This is Deli's first factory in Việt Nam, with the criterion of high-quality materials to ensure the quality as well as the production process, COLORBOND® steel with Activate™ technology is Deli's first choice with outstanding anti-corrosion ability, long-lasting beauty and allows Deli to mark a new milestone here in Việt Nam.

Jotun factory in Nha Be District is another typical example of an industrial environment with high corrosion. To ensure the factory's durability and stability to serve a capacity of 85 million litres of water paint and 10,000 tons of powder coating per year, Jotun has invested 100 million USD in this factory.
At the same time, this enterprise has been rigorous in selecting materials to ensure that the factory is certified as a "Green Building" by LEED - the international standard system for green buildings. COLORBOND® steel with Activate™ technology is Jotun's first choice and meets the strict requirements for design and green material standards of the Singapore Green Building Council.

In addition, many investors are currently focusing on the durability and aesthetics of buildings, choosing to use BlueScope alloy-coated steel with Activate™ technology to increase their investment efficiency.
