Granules play a critical role in asphalt roofing shingles. They protect your roof from ultraviolet rays, resist algae growth, and even reflect sunlight. Available in unique colors, these granules are also designed to enhance the look of your home. Premature granule loss on a shingle can be a dramatic detriment to the condition and color of a roof.
Over the years, Malarkey has driven innovations in asphalt technology to help ensure that these granules stay on shingles for longer. Malarkey Manufacturer Representative Kenji Kumai explains the importance of granule adhesion for roofing shingles, and why Flexor™ polymer modified asphalt provides superior granule retention.
