Sealed pavement offers a positive image of cleanliness to your company and/or home
. The sealer helps enhance and beautify the asphalt by giving it a rich black color. It also helps make the asphalt wear and look more like new. Most importantly, sealcoating helps protect your investment by extending the life of your asphalt, which saves you money in the long run.
Asphalt pavements are a simple combination of rock, sand, and adhesive (the liquid asphalt that binds everything together). UV radiation breaks down this adhesive. This weakens the asphalt to the point that it can no longer hold the rocks and sand intact. This gradually loosens the top surface.
Sealcoating slows down oxidation and water penetration by blocking out natural elements (sun, wind, rain, snow, & ice). It also helps asphalt resist harmful man-made elements (fuel, antifreeze, oil, salt, etc.).
Asphalt sealer reduces exposure to oxygen and water by filling small voids in asphalt. This extends the life of the pavement. Sealcoating older pavement is also beneficial because it helps to replace fine particles lost from the surface due to oxidation.
