The FormFlow C60 Bend
Expanding the uses of corrugated iron for your project.
C60- forming a 60 degree bend in a Custom Orb® sheet, is the latest development from FormFlow.
The C60 bend opens up a world of opportunities for seamless joins between walls and roofing, as well as a range of other transitions. The C60 bend is formed using our patented FormFlow technology and demonstrates our commitment to providing beautiful products to the building industry.
The bend allows stunning aesthetic transitions between sheets and provides a strong, stiff continuous corner. This enables us to change the nature of building.
As of December 2020, the C60 has been produced in a research capacity with some really exciting teaser commercial projects as well as being incorporated into some stunning designs. Do you have a use for the C60 bend that you would like to discuss? Enquire with us today!
How it works
It has architects rethinking design and developers reimagining what’s possible.
The FormFlow Bend delivers smooth transitions between corrugated sheet sections at a range of angles. Our process can produce sharp bends perpendicular to the corrugations. No need for capping, flashing or complex corner design – just an interlocking join that’s much cleaner and distinctive.
FormFlow’s ‘no gaps’ wall cladding and roofing solution can improve overall energy efficiencies and reduce a building’s environmental impact.
FormFlow enables corrugated sheeting to be used as a structural (stressed) skin, reducing the need for additional internal framing while greatly improving assembly efficiency and overall appearance.
The result is a stronger and ultra-functional building envelope that morphs the utilitarian aesthetic of corrugated iron into a stylish architectural statement. A simple idea transformed into a truly elegant solution.

We can also form other materials such as aluminium at a thickness of 0.8mm and can increase this range if required.
CUSTOMFLOW™ sheets come with a fixed 180mm bend leg, measured from where the sheet sits up against the wall to the cut end of the sheet.
This fixed leg will work for 99% of projects and can be trimmed easily by any skilled installer. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you need help incorporating the bend into your designs!
CUSTOMFLOW™ is based on the LYSAGHT CUSTOM ORB® profile and is used for the current product range.
The FormFlow technology can be applied to lots of different corrugated profiles though so let us know which one you would like to see!
CUSTOMFLOW™ is currently produced at the Lysaght plant in Geelong, Victoria. It is available to be shipped Australia wide via the Lysaght delivery network.
CUSTOMFLOW™ machines will be rolled out across the country in the coming years – to a Lysaght plant near you!
The standard CUSTOMFLOW™ offering is a straight sheet of 1 to 8m’s in length, specified by you, with a fixed bend leg of 180mm to allow overlap past the corner.
We can form more than one bend in a sheet in a non-standard offering, but best to discuss with us your application first!
No, the FormFlow bend in CUSTOMFLOW™ does not damage the coating and has been extensively tested with our partners at Deakin University. CUSTOMFLOW™ comes with the standard COLORBOND®/ZINCALUME® warranty of 36 years (subject to installation).
No. Microscopic examination of sections of metal after bending have determined there is no damage.
