Sealcoating is essential in all sealers for asphalt which contain aggregate. This is the initial symptoms of wear and tear on the asphalt.
The ultraviolet radiation of the sun makes asphalt binder oxidize. Even though oxidation cannot be stopped sealing can slow down the process. The oxidation process makes pavements brittle and susceptible to cracks. Sealer is used to safeguard it from the asphalt binder.
Applying the sealer every 2 years will prolong the lifespan of the pavement. Asphalt is a petroleum-based material. Oil-based liquids could leak onto asphalt, causing it to bond to its binder. This causes asphalt to change into a soft. The process can cause more damages to the asphalt. Sealcoating can protect the pavement from these types of leaks. In the event that the pavement shows the appearance of black spots on oil. Prior to applying sealcoating, home owners must first fix the spots of oil. If the oil spots do not get properly treated sealing will be of only a minimal impact on the area, and the damage will persist.
