Asphalt Seal Coating
Sealcoat is applied to asphalt to seal the pavement surface and protect it from the degradation caused by sunlight, oxidation, and water, and to act as a shield against drippings such as oil and gasoline. Sealcoat also beautifies the pavement by providing a smooth, black, even surface ideal for painting lines and sweeping. On older pavements, sealcoating can replace fine particles lost from the asphalt surface while sealing small cracks before they become larger, protecting the supporting base material from water intrusion. While sealcoatings have historically been designed for off-highway use where there are low traffic speeds, newer, more complex blends are being used on roads, highways, and runways.

Sealcoats typically last between 2-3 years, depending on the quality of the material used and the millage (thickness) of the actual application. Sealcoats have a shorter life span than heavier-duty treatments like slurry seal and micro surfacing.
What Is Sealcoat?
Sealcoat is generally a mixture of emulsified asphalt, water, mineral fillers, and various other components. Premium grade sealcoat materials like Sealmaster products use select, highly stable asphalt binders with cross-linking chemistry and premium, crushed-graded aggregate particles.
