3M™ Cool Roofing granules are based on a patented technology by 3M and are available in a wide variety of rich colors that can create the perfect shingle color blend.

3M™ Cool Roofing Granules are used on asphalt shingles and are energy efficient, solar reflective and economically friendly. By reflecting sunlight and heat back into the atmosphere, cool roofs help lower air temperatures while helping keep homes more comfortable. In climates with year-round cooling needs, energy savings can also be realized.  3M Cool Granules can help meet local cool roofing requirements for shingles which makes them an ideal choice for green building.
