3M™ Classic Roofing Granules - How Our System Works

3M uses the highest quality rocks and selects granules that can take and hold long-lasting ceramic coatings.

As part of the manufacturing process‚ 3M bonds colored pigments to the base mineral via the ceramic coating that covers the granule. This process improves color retention and helps the granule withstand even the harshest of weather conditions.

Once produced at one of 3M’s four quarry locations‚ granules are quickly delivered from the closest location to the manufacturer at a competitive price. This efficient process helps lower costs for the manufacturer and‚ ultimately‚ the homeowner or commercial building owner.
