Seal Coating is a great way to preserve your asphalt parking lot by protecting it from UV radiation, moisture, salts & petroleum products.
Asphalt is prone to wear and tear caused by vehicular traffic and exposure to the elements. A combination of heat, abrasion and water penetration can cause it to break down and become cracked. Cracks in the pavement, called potholes, in turn can cause damage to tires, or even lead to road accidents. When it rains, the uneven asphalt can cause vehicles to veer off course. If left alone, these imperfections become worse as the surface area of exposure to the elements increase over time. The asphalt becomes prone to oxidation, making it dry and brittle and having the appearance of a desert land. It is important to protect asphalt against these damaging factors, or repair any existing damage to the asphalt through seal coating to avoid costs not just due to the reconstruction of the road, but also due to accidents.
A seal coat is a liquid mixture of emulsified asphalt, mineral fillers, water and other substances, which is directly applied onto the asphalt using a broom, mechanical spray or rubber squeegee. It helps in protecting the asphalt by acting as a protective seal above it, preventing oxidation and erosion. In repairs, it helps replace the asphalt particles or fragments, and also minimize the surface area exposed to the elements. In short, it increases asphalt durability. Apart from meeting your safety considerations, seal coating also makes the asphalt more attractive with a black surface color that will allow pavement markings to stand out even more. If you are planning on seal-coating your home’s driveway or pavement, this also helps to increase your aesthetic value.
