What is sealcoating and why is it necessary for your pavement? There are three main enemies to your pavement surface that will cause damage and dull the colour:
Sealcoating can DOUBLE the life of your pavement by protecting it from its enemies like sun, oxidation, salt, frost, weather, water, oil and gas.
Oxidation, the graying in color of asphalt pavement, is a sign of fatigue, aging and general surface deterioration. When unprotected pavement becomes oxidized, the aggregate will begin to ravel from the surface making the pavement rough. Once the surface becomes brittle, cracks develop and the pavement deteriorates. Furthermore, water, which accumulates in open pavement structures, is a major cause of pavement damage.
Preventive maintenance before these damaging elements get a hold on your pavement is important. Sealcoating is the most cost effective maintenance procedure available. It also enhances the appearance of your pavement by giving it an attractive, smoother, easy-to-clean, black colour finish.
Silica sand and rubber emulsifier is added to coal tar sealer to provide a heavier wearing surface which means that the sealer will last longer and will be more skid resistant then sealer which does not contain sand.
Sealcoating pavement for pennies a square foot can save dollars in future costly repairs or replacement!
Heavy duty slurry sealer is a blend of emulsified high temperature coal tar and selected mineral fillers developed for use as a flexible, tough, longer-lasting protective coating for asphalt pavements. Slurry is rubber fortified to provide up to 50% greater wear, flexibility, and adhesion than non-rubberized sealers.
When appearance and protection are foremost, slurry seal has been the line of defense to protect the longevity and beauty of millions of acres of asphalt pavement. Locking out spills and protecting against the elements, slurry seal delivers a rich, smooth, black finish that's unparalleled in the marketplace, year after year.
Slurry sealing brings back that smooth black as night finish, it prevents oxidation and is weather AND waterproof. This long lasting sealer must be applied by an experienced applicator.
