The FormFlow C90 Bend
Changing the way you use corrugated iron
C90- Our flagship 90 degree bend in classic LYSAGHT CUSTOM ORB®
The C90 Bend is FormFlow’s flagship product, and thanks to a collaboration with BlueScope Lysaght we are now taking it to the world stage. Available exclusively through Lysaght in Australia, the CUSTOMFLOW™ solution combines LYSAGHT CUSTOM ORB® corrugated sheets with FormFlow C90 bend technology.
By forming a 90-degree bend in LYSAGHT CUSTOM ORB® corrugated sheets, our technology forms a continuous corner that allows seamless joins between walls and roofing.

How it works
The FormFlow C90 Bend delivers smooth transitions between corrugated sheet sections at a range of angles. Our innovative process can produce sharp bends perpendicular to the corrugations. So there’s no need for capping, flashing or complex corner design. You’ll get a clean, distinctive interlocking join that’s stronger than a conventional corner.
Incorporating the CUSTOMFLOW™ ‘no gaps’ wall cladding and roofing solution can improve the overall energy efficiencies of a building and reduce its environmental impact. You’ll get better insulation and a watertight and airtight outer cladding. Other benefits include a lower risk of ember attack and improved bushfire performance as well as eliminating the ingress of dirt and small animals.

CUSTOMFLOW™ C90 sheets can be formed in both COLORBOND® standard and MATT finishes as well as ZINCALUME® steel, GALVANISED and other coatings. The standard offering from Lysaght is 0.42BMT G550 CUSTOM ORB®.
We can also offer 0.48BMT G550 and 0.60BMT G300 as non-standard and lots of other materials – if you can corrugate it, we can form it!
The CUSTOMFLOW™ offering allows all LYSAGHT CUSTOM ORB® and CUSTOM BLUE ORB® thicknesses to be formed.
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).
