Designed as a protective coating, sealcoat is used as a low-cost wearable surface to protect asphalt pavements in good condition compared to those left exposed to the long-term effects of sunlight, water, salt, oil, gasoline and other vehicle fluids. When applied every 3-5 years- this smooth, wearable layer can nearly double the life of asphalt pavement.
Depending on the size of the area and traffic considerations, installed per square foot cost is roughly 8%-15% of the paved surface.
Spray applied in 2-coat applications using purpose-built mobile trailer systems. Other methods include squeegee.
When applied within the first 12 months on new asphalt pavement, the useful life of sealcoat in average traffic is 3 – 5 years.
Summer months – 24 hours after application.
Winter months – 36-48 hours after application.
Summer months: 24 hours after application.
Winter months : 36-48 hours after application.
