Why Seal Coat?
Seal Coating Will Prolong Your Pavements Life. You may ask, how? Well there are several ways. In order for you to understand them, you must first understand that asphalt is a combination of sand, stones and liquid asphalt cement.
Ultraviolet Rays Are Resisted By Seal Coating. Ultraviolet rays break down the carbon bond structure of the asphalt, causing the pavement to deteriorate and crumble. Applying seal coating helps to prevent the UV rays from penetrating the pavements surface.
Gasoline And Oil Is Resisted By Seal Coating. It is extremely important on driveways, parking lots and where cars are worked on. Petroleum products soften asphalt. Our professional-grade sealers contain the additives needed to enable it to resist these types of leaks. Filling all surface voids, seal coating reduces how deep these petroleum products can penetrate the pavement.
Seal Coating Cracked Asphalt. Hardened and brittle asphalt will eventually crack. Cracked pavement enables oxygen and rain to penetrate the surface, weakening it and minimizing the pavement's durability. Seal coating protects the surface and fills surface cracks, minimizing the pavement's exposure to oxygen and water, helping to extend the pavements life.
Seal Coating Improves The Appearance And The Ease Of Maintenance. Seal coating returns the dark color of the original pavement and makes it look like new. Seal coated surfaces are also easier to maintain and clean. Because seal coat seals surface voids, seal coated pavement is much smoother. And the smoother the surface the easier it is to sweep, clean and maintain.
