Product: Sand Slurry Seal Coat
Product Overview: Sand Slurry Seal Coat is a cost effective maintenance progam that will extend the life of Asphalt Paved surfaces. This maintenance is important to the structural integrity of the driveway, parking lot or roadway that it is applied to. Seal Coat will effectively “seal” the porous asphalt creating an impervious layer that resists environmental and other factors that could be damaging to an unsealed pavement. Environmental factors include the sun, rain, snow, oxidization which will deteriorate the pavement from the top down. Other factors include snow removal methods, ice control, vehicle traffic and petroleum based product spills. With Seal Coat applied, these factors are rejected from penetrating into the pavement which would normally cause premature failing of the original surface. Although Petroleum based products spilled in large enough quantities and left to soak in will eventually break down the Seal Coat, mild spills and vehicle oil drippings will generally be stopped long enough for them to evaporate before they have a chance to cause any damage.
Seal Coat should last 4-5 years under normal conditions, which brings us back to the cost effectiveness of Seal Coat. Seal Coat is on average 1/10th the cost of Paving. With a 4-5 year reapplication schedule the pavement will, in most cases, never have to be replaced. The cost of shutting down a business for the time required to install a new pavement structure, Possibly weeks, should also be considered with comparing costs. Where the time to Seal Coat is only 2-3 days.
Seal Coat will have a darker appearance than conventional black-top pavement throughout its term adding visual enhancement, contrasting the building from the parking lot, or home from the driveway. When this product is applied in a proper process it will produce excellent results that are both going to save the customer money and give the pavement a permanent “New” look. Seal Coat should be required on all paved surfaces insuring additional longevity of our infrastructures and delaying costly unnecessary repairs.
