Sealcoating is the most important way to maintain an asphalt parking lot. Asphalt pavement is designed to be a flexible surface made from asphalt emulsion and fine aggregates. Aging can become accelerated if the pavement is left unsealed.
Sealcoating is the application of a thin coat of coal tar pitch or asphalt emulsion mixed with inert fillers, water, emulsifying agents or additives.
Pavement Solutions uses quality materials and a proven sealcoating technique to deliver outstanding resistance to water seepage, petroleum spills, oxidation from the sun and other damaging elements. Sealcoated pavements will last 30-50% longer than pavements that are left unsealed.
The first step to sealcoating is to clean the area from debris. The pavement’s condition is then carefully evaluated to identify asphalt defects such as cracks, potholes, and oil spills. Primer is used to cover up oil and chemical spots. Potholes are repaired and cracks are filled in with crack sealant. We apply at least two coats of commercial grade sealer to the pavement. It takes approximately 12 hours for the surface to completely dry.
