PROTECTION DESIGNED FOR ASPHALT
Asphalt pavement is a combination of gravel and rock or stone that is held together with a binder made from the distillation process of some crude oils. Maintaining this binder is crucial for a long life of asphalt surfaces. Chemicals, rain, and UV rays can degrade the binder and thus cause asphalt to break down and become more susceptible to damages. To reduce damaging effects of these elements, it’s essential to include sealcoating to an asphalt maintenance program. Asphalt coating sealers contain anti-oxidation additives minimizing surface raveling and shielding against ruining elements and moisture. It’s the ideal cost-effective preservation solution that will extend the life of your asphalt pavement. Moreover, when applied by professional sealcoating contractors, sealcoating provides a slip-resistant surface that has nice, deep black finish. Therefore, regular sealcoating will save you a lot of money, double the life of your asphalt pavement, and improve its appearance.
ASPHALT SEALER APPLICATION
Before sealcoating, we clean the surface and perform any pavement repair or crack filling when necessary. This ensures that adhesion is as strong as possible. We will do this at no charge to you. Most asphalt sealcoating companies offer this service, and you should be cautious if they don’t.
Oil spots are especially problematic on driveways and parking lots where cars sit for long periods of time. As a rule, asphalt coating sealers do not adhere in these areas due to their water-based qualities. For this reason, our company uses PrepSeal by SealMaster to treat these areas to ensure that our asphalt sealer sticks well to your surface.
Now, we are ready to begin sealing your asphalt pavement. We start with the edge and work our way in. In the final result, you get a dark black, attractive finish with straight edging lines. Your site is ready for a fresh re-painting and re-striping.
ABOUT POLYMER-MODIFIED MASTERSEAL
Like many reputable asphalt sealcoating contractors, we use Polymer-Modified MasterSeal (PMM), one of the leading seal coat products in the pavement maintenance industry. PMM is an environmentally friendly mineral reinforced asphalt emulsion mixed with special surfactants and polymers to provide superior adhesion, durability, and flexibility. PMM is a fast drying sealer designed to beautify and protect asphalt pavements such as parking lots, driveways, shopping malls, airports, roadways and other.
