Ecoasis Premium Overview
Ecoasis Premium is a laminate shingle that features specially engineered solar reflective granules and is fortified with Malarkeys unique Flexor SBS polymer modified asphalt technology to promote extreme weather protection. Ecoasis Premium includes the Scotchgard Algae Resistant Shingle Protector from 3M for added security against algae staining.
Solar Reflective Shingles
The Ecoasis line of shingles feature Cool Roofing Granules from 3M that reflect solar rays, which may reduce the amount of heat entering your home and can result in lower attic temperatures compared to standard shingle colors. These shingles meet the required reflectance to be designated with industry leading energy conservation standards, including: ENERGY STAR, Cool Roof Rating Council, and California Energy Code, Title 24, Part 6 compliance. Colors with an SRI at 29 or above also meet LEED requirements. To augment the Ecoasis shingle line, Malarkey makes solar reflective 10″ EZ-Ridge XT and 10″ Hip & Ridge Strips in matching colors.
Scotchgard Protection from 3M
Algae growth on a roof can cause black streaks, which can alter the color of your roof and make it appear aged. Shingles with Scotchgard Protector help maintain the aesthetic appearance of your roof by resisting black streaks caused by algae, which may reduce the need to clean your roof. Shingles with Scotchgard Protector include a 20-year warranty.
Extreme Weather Protection
Malarkey’s shingles with Flexor SBS polymer modified asphalt technology received the UL 2218 Class 4 impact resistance rating, which is the highest rating possible. In a Class 4 impact test, Malarkey’s shingles with Flexor withstood a simulation of hailstones impacting a roof at 90 mph (145 kph) without sustaining damage.
Superior Granular Embedment
Flexor SBS polymer modified asphalt technology is resilient through temperature cycles, providing greater granule adhesion to the shingle. When granules stay on the shingle, it creates a barrier from the elements and your roof lasts longer.
Flexor SBS Polymer Modified Asphalt Technology
Flexor SBS polymer modified asphalt technology increases the weatherability of shingles through superior granule adhesion and all-weather flexibility. Malarkey blends their Flexor SBS polymer modified asphalt at each of their facilities to maintain and control high quality standards.
One of the most critical aspects of a successful roofing project is correct installation. Improper fastener placement is the leading cause of incorrect shingle installation and can subsequently void the warranty. Malarkey laminate shingles are manufactured with The Zone patented nailing area, which is over three times larger than other laminate shingles and dramatically improves correct fastener placement.
Flexor SBS polymer modified asphalt technology ensures that shingles are flexible in temperatures down to 0F (-18C), which is 40 degrees lower than the typical installation of standard asphalt. This cold weather flexibility allows the shingle to be installed in colder temperatures than standard oxidized asphalt shingles without damage to the shingle. Flexor allows the shingle to conform to a variety of roof structures, withstand extreme weather cycles, and be installed in a wider range of climates.
Double Rain Seal Protection
A rain seal helps hold shingles in place during high winds and protects against wind-blown rain entering beneath the shingles. Malarkey laminate shingles are manufactured with an extra line of defense in the critical area for laminated shingles, with double SEBS asphalt rain seals. Malarkey’s SEBS asphalt has adhesive properties to join the shingle together and cohesive properties to prevent it from separating. SEBS is also flexible down to 0F (-18C), ensuring the rain seal remains intact through freeze and thaw cycles.
