Atlas Roofing, an innovator in shingle technology, says Core4 surpasses standard styrene butadiene styrene (SBS) asphalt for overall better rooftop performance. By including Core4 in its hip-and-ridge shingle lines, Atlas further raises quality and performance expectations across the industry.
Core4 Technology — previously only available in Atlas StormMaster® Shake and StormMaster® Slate shingle lines — are manufactured with polymers enhanced at a molecular level that help shingles stand up to the most severe weather conditions. Like StormMaster Shake and StormMaster Slate, StormMaster Hip & Ridge feature Scotchgard™ Protector for long-lasting defense against black streaks caused by algae.
"With the addition of our Core4 technology in StormMaster Hip & Ridge, Atlas is again underscoring its commitment to providing the best quality shingles on the market," says Stan Bastek, vice president of sales and marketing for Atlas Roofing's Shingle & Underlayment Division. "Our research-driven results show Core4 technology outpaces standard asphalt technology."
Introduced in 2019, Core4 incorporates a proprietary blend of enhanced virgin polymers to create four primary features:
- PolyCore® Technology creates stronger shingles that last longer and perform with increased consistency and less variability.
- FlexCore® Technology allows shingles to bend and flex in cold temperatures, particularly when others crack and tear.
- WeatherCore® Technology provides shingles with strength and resilience to withstand winds up to 150 mph and hail damage.
- ThermalCore® Technology drives shingle stability, reducing the effects of expansion and contraction caused by extreme temperature changes.
StormMaster Hip & Ridge colors match Atlas StormMaster Shake, StormMaster Slate and Pinnacle® Pristine shingles and will continue to provide homeowners with the same stunning curb appeal they have come to expect from Atlas.
StormMaster Hip & Ridge shingles are now a required component of the Atlas Signature Select® Roofing System for StormMaster Slate, StormMaster Shake or Pinnacle Pristine installations. StormMaster Hip & Ridge are covered by the Atlas Lifetime Algae Resistance Limited Warranty.
