Information on Seal Coat or Driveway Sealer
Sealer is a tough, protective coating recommended for use on any type of asphalt pavement.
Appearance of Seal:
Sealer also beautifies asphalt surfaces by giving the pavement a dark, black classic look. Seal creates a warm & professional look.
Protection Seal Coating Provides:
Sealer protects the pavement by forming a flexible coating on the surface. Because blacktop is naturally porous, water can seep into and through the paving. This not only causes deterioration, but results in ridges and upheaval due to frost and freezing. Blacktop is also softened and broken-up by gasoline, lube oil, grease, road salts and anti-freeze which drip from cars and other vehicles. Sealer protects blacktop with a coating that is impervious to these harmful elements. Unprotected paving systems remain porous, dry out, become rough and lose their life rapidly.
To preserve your asphalt paving, it is advisable to seal coat it after it has been paved. Sealing too soon, however, may cause damage to your new drive. The best time to seal is 3-12 months after it has been paved and every 2-3 years thereafter.
