North American Sealcoating

Sealcoating your pavement is an important cost-effective pavement preservation procedure that when applied every 3-5 years, commencing a year after installation, can double the life of your pavement.

Why Sealcoat?

Sealcoating pavement protects against and seals out oxidation and the harmful actinic rays of the sun. Oxidation starts to occur immediately after the pavement is installed. Pavement is made up of stone/aggregate and asphalt. The asphalt is the glue that holds the stone/aggregate together. Oxidation, the mixing of air and water molecules combined with sun light will break down asphalt. Because asphalt is the glue that holds the stone in place in pavement, losing the asphalt leaves the stone either exposed or causes the stone to come out of suspension. This will leave voids on the surface for water to collect and through freeze and thaw further break down the pavement. Asphalt gives the pavement its flexibility. The loss of that flexibility, will cause the pavement to dry out, becoming brittle and more susceptible to surface/geothermal cracking, potholes etc. Pavement should be sealed and protected as soon as it has cured. approximately 6 months to 1 year after installation.  Sealcoating as necessary, every 3-5 years will help ensure that a high percentage of asphalt is in your pavement is retained.

 

Sealcoating seals out the harmful effects that occur when gas & oil is spilled on the pavement.

Sealcoating also enhances the look of the pavement adding to its curb appeal.
