Dynasty is distinguished by its random shake-look design, unique high contrast dual band shadow coloration, and superior thermally activated shingle sealant. Colored, ceramic granules surface the top of both layers of this shingle to protect the asphalt from ultraviolet radiation. Each shingle has release tape and mineral powder applied to the underside, thus preventing any sticking in the bundle. Dynasty features IKO's ArmourZONE wider nailing area for easier, faster.
