Different Types of Sealcoating

Sealcoating renews and protects asphalt surfaces. The protective layer that sealcoating provides eliminates water intrusion, avoids fading and oxidation due to sun exposure, and eliminates damages due to contact with vehicle fluid leaks. It also restores an asphalt surface to the shiny, black surface it was meant to be. Experts on asphalt paving in Lockeford, CA, recommend sealcoating your asphalt surface within a year of initial installation and again every 2 to 3 years to ensure the highest level of protection possible and extend the structure's life.

There are four fundamental components to sealcoating products available on the market. The most crucial element is the binder that guards an asphalt surface. The binder in sealcoating products allows them to bond well with the pavement underneath and provides the beautiful ebony color most individuals associate with asphalt pavement. Clay and filler are other critical components of sealcoating products. These components of the sealcoating mixture help to enhance its strength. Water is the third primary element of sealcoating mixtures. Water use allows the other sealcoating features to remain stable and makes it easier for contractors to apply sealcoating on an asphalt surface more smoothly. The final element of sealcoating is the specialty chemicals designed to repel water, make the surface more flexible, and enhance ultraviolet ray protection. All sealcoating products have the same essential elements but present different benefits, making it necessary to select the sealcoating style that best meets your paving demands.

Experts deliver the following sealcoating varieties that can be utilized to maintain your asphalt surfaces.

Asphalt emulsion sealcoating products

Asphalt emulsion sealcoating products are made with pre-emulsified asphalt or hot asphalt. These products prevent cracking and protect asphalt surfaces from potential damage. Unfortunately, asphalt emulsion sealcoating products do not offer petroleum-based product defense for an asphalt surface. For this reason, rubber polymers and other chemical compositions are commonly added to the sealcoating product to enhance its defensive performance.

Refined coal-tar sealcoating

Refined coal-tar sealcoating products have a refined coal tar base, the resulting byproduct of workers refining coal to create steel. This protective coating has many benefits, including that it opposes damage from dangerous UV sun rays and resists many extreme weather elements. It is often the favored sealcoating option for commercial property owners because it eradicates damages from petroleum-based products or other fluids leaking from vehicles.
