Improving Our Climate One Roof at a Time With Malarkey NEX® Shingles
Manufactured with clean technology, the environmentally designed NEX® Architectural Shingles feature 3M™ smog-absorbing granules to reduce air pollution, contain recycled content, and at the end of their long life can be recycled.
3M™ Smog-Reducing Granules
Air quality is a concern for us all, which is why Malarkey created the industry’s first smog-absorbing shingles. 3M™ Smog-Reducing Granules (featured in TIME Magazine’s 50 Best Inventions of 2018), harness sunlight to photocatalytically convert smog (NO, NO2) into water-soluble ions (NO3), actively reducing air pollution.
Malarkey Roofing Products defers waste from entering landfills by reducing the need for new synthetic materials. With the NEX® polymer modified asphalt, the next generation of asphalt shingle technology, specific polymers sourced from repurposed materials are included to enhance performance characteristics of the shingle.
Asphalt Shingles are Recyclable
At the end of their useful life, asphalt shingles can avoid landfills and be recycled in most major metro areas. The shingles are ground up and used widely in paving applications. To learn more about how asphalt shingles are recycled, visit the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association website.
GreenCircle provides third-party certification of sustainability claims through a rigorous scientific evaluation based on internationally recognized standards and guidelines. In the GreenCircle certification process, diversion, and reduction can be achieved through a combination of approved methods. Malarkey utilized the methods of source reduction, recycling, energy recovery, and reuse of materials to achieve waste diversion from landfill thresholds.
