Seal Coating

     Why Seal Coating Is Necessary

Asphalt is a combination of sand, stones and liquid, asphalt and cement. There are a number of reasons why Seal Coating will prolong the life of your asphalt. 

Seal Coating is a sun-block for your pavement, sealing it from sun and water exposure.
Through time, sun and water exposure will cause the cement to evaporate. This will cause the asphalt to turn gray in color. This gray color indicates pavement that has too much sand and stone compared to the amount of asphalt cement. It has usually started to harden and at this point and can become brittle. If left untreated, issues like frost or excessive heat causes the pavement to swell and contract when it cools. This causes movement in the base, eventually causing cracks. properly applied, Seal Coating will minimize if not completely eliminate the damage done by sun and water.

Seal Coating prevents oxidation.
Exposure to the environment causes a natural oxidation and drying of asphalt. This is a good thing during the first six to twelve months because it firms the asphalt. However, after the first year, the oxidation starts to harden the pavement. This leads to a loss of flexibility or hardening which results in a brittle surface that eventually cracks. Cracks in the pavement enable oxygen and rain water to penetrate the pavement, often into the sub-base, weakening it and reducing the pavement strength. Seal Coating protects the surface and fills surface voids, reducing the pavement's exposure to oxygen and water, extending the life of the pavement. Seal Coat is a latex-based coal tar additive and sand. It resists damage from solar radiation, petroleum spills, and water penetration.
