Sealcoating Services Saginaw MI
Seal coating offers many benefits. It will protect your asphalt by preventing water from penetrating the surface of the pavement and defends the top layer of asphalt from oxidation and wear caused by exposure to the sun and air. The coating will seal small cracks in your pavement that, without proper attention, could eventually turn into larger cracks. It also protects against the harmful eﬀects of chemical spills such as oil and gasoline.
In addition to guarding the structural integrity of your pavement, seal coating can also beautify your pavement by providing an attractive black surface that is ideal for painting lines and other markers. It also leaves a smooth, clean surface ideal for sweeping, lowering cleaning costs.
What is seal coating?
Seal coating is a mixture of emulsiﬁed asphalt, water, mineral ﬁllers, and other top ingredients that is applied directly to the surface of an asphalt pavement by rubber squeegee, broom, or mechanical spray. Seal coating actually costs pennies per square foot compared to the dollars needed to repair or replace damaged asphalt.
Seal coating is typically designed for oﬀ-highway use where there are low traﬃc speeds and limited turning space, such as parking lots, mobile home parks, schools, road shoulders, etc. Seal coats are diﬀerent from slurry seals, which use a much coarser aggregate ﬁller and are designed for use on high-speed areas with straight rolling traﬃc.
