Malarkey Roofing Products uses Kraton styrene-butadiene-styrene (SBS) based elastomers to enhance the performance of its modified asphalt shingles. Malarkey, the first manufacturer of SBS-modified shingles in the U.S., uses Kraton resins to add flexibility and strength, as well as improved weather and impact resistance to a traditionally rigid product.

The company developed three distinct shingles using SBS-modified asphalt. The Alaskan was developed to be highly flexible at cold temperatures, thus extending the building season in cold climates. The Alaskan also meets new wind resistance standards that came into effect after Hurricane Andrew. The Hurricane shingle incorporates 3M Algae Block technology to combat algae growth in high moisture regions. The Legacy shingle is a high performance shingle designed for high-end architectural applications.
