Sealcoat or pavement sealer is a coating for asphalt-based pavements. Sealcoating is marketed as a protective coating that extends the life of asphalt pavements.
Sealcoating may also reduce the friction or anti-skid properties associated with the exposed aggregates in asphalt.
Not all pavement sealcoat are created equal. For example, refined tar-based (cold tar) sealer offers the best protecting against water penetration and chemical resistance. Asphalt-based sealer typically offers a little less protection against environmental, chemical, and/or harsher climates (salt water). Petroleum-based sealer offer protection against water and chemicals somewhere between the other two sealers. Another difference between coatings is in terms of wear. Again, refined tar-based sealer offers the best wear characteristics (typically 3–5 years) while asphalt-based sealer may last 1–3 years. Petroleum-based sealer falls between refined tar and asphalt. But, these averages depend largely on the amount of traffic and the elements. Less Traffic - Less Wear. This is Texas, so we have some of the harshest weather changes in the country. We can be in the 80's one day and below freezing the next. These extreme changes have a devastating effect on asphalt pavement (main cause - cracks). This is why it is imperative to keep your lot/road sealed.
Prior to application the surface must be completely clean and dry using sweeping methods and/or blowers. If the surface is not clean and dry, then poor adhesion will result. Pavement sealers are applied with either pressurized spray equipment, self-propelled squeegee machines, or by hand with a squeegee. Equipment must have continuous agitation to maintain consistency of the sealcoat mix. The process requires 24 to 48 hours of curing before vehicles can be allowed back on the surface. Once the surface is properly prepared, then properly mixed sealer will be applied at about 60 square feet per gallon per coat. We here at Jones Paving Company apply 50 square feet per gallon for better coverage, and we do not dilute the materials below specifications just to stretch the materials like many do (Especially by some people referred to as out-of-towners. They care nothing about their customers, only the money. And, the seal is usually diluted up to 50% or more with water. Needless to say, it doesn't last very long. Then when you try to contact them - they cannot be found. The newest trick is using a local phone number to make people think they are local. Always check them out with the local Better Business Bureau first).
