    Roofing Innovation Center

    In this video Randy Morgan, National Account Director for Industrial Minerals, takes us on a tour through the 3M Roofing Innovation Center where we help manufacturers develop and test shingle color blends.

    This process allows manufacturers to easily see what a color would look like on a roof. Taking a mere 20-30 minutes for the center to complete; manufacturers benefit from quick, simple and realistic color examples without tying up their own production lines for testing.
