Water Tank Colours

Standard Tank Colours

We want to help you find the right colour. The palette we have assembled for you below is a very good fit for the Australian urban and rural landscape, and we proudly present it to you as our standard tank colour range.

Raw materials for these Colorbond® equivalents are food grade certified (AS/NZS 2070), potable water certified (AS/NZS 4020), and include quality UV protection for long lasting colour. When you buy a properly certified tank such as ours (AS/NZS 4766 is the comprehensive standard for poly water tanks), the 4020 and 2070 raw material standards are an important first step before the manufacturing process can commence.

When comparing colours, please note that your computer display, printouts and even professional brochures will almost always show colour variation. The discerning eye will notice differences in colour appearance when you try to match up different building materials. Variances also occur when viewing even the same type of material under different lighting conditions. This is true for all materials. All of these variables can make colour an extremely complex topic!

Accordingly, the colours in all charts below are indications only. Known naming equivalents are listed below each colour, including Colorbond®.

Many More Colours

You will have worked out by now that we manufacture rotomoulded products for many industries, in addition to our range of water tanks. This means that if you're feeling adventurous, you can choose from a greatly expanded range of designer and industrial base colours. Samples of some of the more common choices are listed below. They look awesome as a water tank.

Please note that we usually order large batches of these types of colours to suit specific jobs. Your reseller will need to contact us for availability and pricing. For non-tank colours, if formal certification for food contact or potable water is important for your application, your reseller will need to check with us that this has been obtained first.

Specialty Grades

We're showing off now. We're listing these here just because we can. Most of these are common material grades in other products that we make. It is possible to make tanks using or incorporating them too.

By far the most common choice for large tanks on this specialty list is Natural, especially for high end industrial applications. If you are interested in any of these grades though, please call us first to discuss. It is likely you have a unique application, which means that it is important we get involved early on in your planning process.
