The Alaskan is a traditional 3-tab shingle that is fortified with Malarkeys unique Flexor SBS polymer modified asphalt technology to promote extreme weather protection. The Alaskan includes the Scotchgard Algae Resistant Shingle Protector from 3M for added security against algae staining.
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.
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.
