Sealcoating is a vital part of keeping an asphalt surface intact and safe for drivers. The attached video will show you, step by step, how sealcoating goes down and finishes an asphalt project. Seal coating services provide a simple yet vital service to infrastructure by helping make sure our roadways — and driveways — stay safe and damage-free.
But before we get into the process itself, what exactly is sealcoating and why is it so important? Well, sealcoating is a protective coating that is brushed / swabbed on after asphalt has been laid down.
It’s designed to help extend the life of asphalt surfaces by protecting them from vehicle leaks, freezing temperatures, and general wear and tear.
Sealcoating can last up to three years, but is often redone annually to give the asphalt the best protection possible. Sealcoating is typically an emulsion that is made up of pure water, coal tar, additives, and emulsifying agents. It takes somewhere between 24 to 48 hours to dry fully, depending on factors like weather.
