In collaboration with 3M, Malarkey Roofing Products® is excited to announce the inclusion of 3M™ Smog-reducing granules to our roofing shingle lines. What began with a vision and curiosity from our executive offices and research department has expanded into an opportunity for tangible positive change. These roofing products, designed to mitigate the nitrogen oxides found in smog, are more important than ever before.
Malarkey Roofing Products is deferring waste from entering landfills by reducing our need for new synthetic materials. With our Nexgen™ polymer modified asphalt, the next generation of asphalt shingle technology, specific polymers are included to enhance performance characteristics of the shingle, sourced from recycled materials. The environmental results are significant.
The product design process at Malarkey Roofing Products considers many aspects of a product’s performance, construction, life cycle, and components. Granules are an integral part of a roofing shingle. Not only does their asphalt adhesion help keep shingle colors vibrant, but granules can also be engineered to perform and protect in certain climates.
Roofing shingles protect your home from the elements. One of the many elements that shingles protect your roof from is driving wind. Malarkey utilizes a specially formulated adhesive to seal shingles to the roof. Strong winds can threaten to lift shingles from your roof if they are not properly secured. In addition to being properly installed by a Certified Contractor, Malarkey uses lines of SEBS polymer modified asphalt sealant to help hold the shingle in place.
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.
There is no denying what effect the passage of time will have on your home. Roof age can be apparent when unsightly black streaks caused by algae appear. Roof replacement is a considerable investment of time and money and Malarkey shingles featuring Scotchgard™ Protector can help prevent those black streaks and keep your roof looking beautiful longer.

Mat, asphalt, granules and sealant strips combine to create the basic components of asphalt shingles. As with any product, the end quality can be attributed to the quality of the components used to create it.
