Athens, Ohio Asphalt Seal Coating
Seal coating asphalt pavement slows pavement deterioration by protecting against the enemies of a parking lot. However, for maximum benefit, asphalt seal coat needs to be applied approximately 12 months after the initial construction and then on a regular basis, about every 24-36 months, thereafter.
Asphalt Seal coating after crack sealing should be done every two or three years will significantly extend the life of your asphalt pavement for minimal cost.
Asphalt Seal coating prevents oxidation. Asphalt pavement begins to deteriorate almost as soon as it is placed. Oxygen combines with the asphalt binder in the pavement and begins to break down the binder. Seal coating provides a protective barrier that protects the binder in the pavement from oxidation.
Asphalt Seal coating stops weather damage when properly applied to the specifications outlined above. Moisture penetration is one of the leading causes of pavement failure this is also why asphalt crack sealing needs to be done prior. Seal coating forms a water tight film that prevents moisture from penetrating and damaging your pavement surface.
