“Protect asphalt with sealcoating”

Sealcoating involves applying a top protective layer to the surface of the asphalt pavement. Asphalt is made up of rock and gravel and a binding agent. The binding agent must stay intact to protect the integrity of the surface. Sealcoating provides protection for the binding agent by shielding it from elements that contribute to erosion. These elements include UV rays, water, oil, gasoline, and other chemicals. Sealcoating is the most cost-effective way to avoid expensive repairs due to pavement failures.

Asphalt based sealers are asphalt emulsions that primarily consist of asphalt, pure water, and an emulsifying agent.

Asphalt: Asphalt is a selectively refined form of crude petroleum oil and makes up about 50 to 75 percent of a typical emulsion.
