PROTECT & BEAUTIFY ASPHALT PAVEMENT
Asphalt pavement is mostly rock and/or stone and gravel, along with a binder. The rock, or aggregate, is held together with this binder known as asphalt cement. Maintaining this binder is essential in prolonging the deterioration of asphalt surfaces. Rain, U.V. rays, and chemicals, as they are introduced into the asphalt, will degrade the binder and thus begin the degradation process of the asphalt. This will continue and create a surface that turns brittle. So, the purpose of asphalt sealcoating is to protect the asphalt pavement and to beautify at the same time. The earlier an asphalt sealer can be applied in the life cycle of asphalt the better.
To reduce the effects of the above-mentioned elements, it is important to implement a maintenance program that utilizes sealcoating to extend the life of your parking lot or driveway. Sealcoating will provide a layer of protection blocking out harmful intrusions such as water, oils, and U.V. damage. In addition, when asphalt sealer is applied to manufacturers’ specifications, sealcoating provides a slip-resistant surface with a deep black finish that beautifies the parking lot or driveway. Asphalt sealers are typically bituminous based products or acrylics. The sealcoat is in a liquid formulation of one of the above emulsions, mixed with water, silica sand, polymer additives, and other proprietary fillers and solids. These products can be applied by brush, spray or squeegee.
A regularly scheduled sealcoating program will more than double the life of the asphalt, saving you significant dollars down the line.
Instead of having to pay thousands of dollars for new pavement, it is more cost effective to spend only pennies on the dollar per square foot to maintain.
Asphalt Pavement, also known as Hot Mix, is a simple blend of two main components; Molten Liquid Asphalt (the black glue or binder), and Crushed Rock or Aggregate.
The Hot Mix is then placed and compacted to form asphalt pavement.

It provides both image and functionality to business or institution. Your parking lot represents a substantial capital investment that must be maintained.
A scheduled program of pavement maintenance that includes sealcoating and crack filling will more than double the life of your asphalt pavement and provide maximum curb appeal.
Sealcoating and crack filling are a fraction of the cost of repairing or replacing asphalt pavement.

Moisture intrusion is the leading cause of pavement deterioration. When left alone and when cracks are not repaired, potholes become evident and a safety problem. Potholes represent an annoyance to vehicle traffic and a serious tripping hazard to pedestrians.
To avoid potential liability, potholes should be filled immediately upon discovery with either SealMaster cold patch materials or hot mix material.
Filling potholes is a relatively easy and inexpensive process.
Cracks in your pavement along with pot holes and raveling not only reduce the value of your property and are un-appealing, they are also a safety issue and cause problems for visitors. With SealMaster’s large network of sealcoating and asphalt maintenance contractors, a solution to unsightly pavement can be had.
Pavement deterioration occurs when melted snow or rainwater seep through cracks in the pavement and can’t get absorbed into the frozen ground. When the water freezes, it expands and can “pop” or weaken the asphalt. The weight of autos rolling over the weakened pavement causes chunks to break away.

AquaSet will instantly start to harden, so there’s no need to close the area to traffic once the pavement is repaired. This permanent, eco-friendly formula is safe for people, animals, and the environment.
Severely damaged pavement requires patching using either Infrared Patching techniques, Full-Depth asphalt repair, or GatorPave.
Infrared Patching involves heating up and re-melting the damaged asphalt, raking and then compacting the asphalt to produce a “like new” asphalt patch area.
Full-Depth Asphalt Repair involves cutting out and removing the damaged asphalt, repairing the base and replacing with fresh hot mix asphalt. Full-depth asphalt repair typically provides better long-term results.
SealMaster GatorPave is a polymer-modified, fiber reinforced asphalt emulsion fortified with select aggregate. It is designed for patching cracked and alligatored pavement. GatorPave is both economical and easy to use.
SealMaster® offers a full line of oil spot primers for sealing oil, gas and grease spots on asphalt pavement, and high-quality asphalt emulsion tack coats for use in priming asphalt surfaces, prior to patching or resurfacing.
When the work is done, SealMaster® makes clean-up easy with our line of specialty cleaners designed for the removal of coal tar and asphalt pavement sealers from tools, equipment, vehicles and other surfaces.
