Asphalt surfaces can be effectively protected by using a seal coating which acts as a barrier between the external harmful elements and the asphalt pavement. An asphalt emulsion sealer is used which is highly resistant to water, gas and oil, salt, chemicals and uv radiation that will in turn cause erosion and pitting. The cost of asphalt replacement can be avoided by have your asphalt seal coated every two years which is recommended or as needed. Without sealcoating the asphalt will allow the water to penetrate the surface, making it harder and more likely to crack with the freeze and thaw associated within the climate.

SEALCOAT BANS – In 2016 much of michigan has enacted a ban of the use of coal tar driveway sealants. One of the most important things about this ban to understand is that is not only a ban against coal tar sealers but rather a ban of PAH (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons) which exist in coal tar sealers as well as some asphalt emulsion sealers. Our product is rated at .0005% PAH level which is compliant with all local ordinances. There are companies that advertise coal tar free sealers that are not pah compliant. There are coal tar free sealers that can have up to 400 times the pah level then our product does. Its is important to make sure the product you are getting is pah compliant as not all contractors our following the new ordinances.
