Seal coating is a process of applying a protective coating to the surface of an asphalt pavement. This process involves the application of a thin layer of a mixture of asphalt emulsion and water, along with other materials such as sand, fillers, and polymers. The seal coating provides a protective layer to the asphalt surface, which helps to extend its lifespan and durability.
One of the primary benefits of seal coating is that it helps to prevent damage caused by the sun, rain, snow, and other weather elements. The ultraviolet rays from the sun can cause the asphalt surface to deteriorate, resulting in cracks and potholes. Seal coating acts as a barrier to these elements, reducing the impact of weather on the surface.
Another benefit of seal coating is that it helps to prevent the penetration of water into the pavement. Water can seep into the pavement through cracks and holes, which can cause damage to the sub-base and weaken the structure of the pavement. By sealing the surface, the water is prevented from entering the pavement, reducing the risk of damage and extending the life of the pavement.
Seal coating also enhances the appearance of the pavement, giving it a fresh and new look. It fills in small cracks, and provides a smooth and even surface for driving and parking. This can improve the safety of the pavement by reducing the risk of accidents and injuries caused by uneven surfaces.
In conclusion, seal coating is a cost-effective way to protect and extend the life of your asphalt surface. By preventing damage caused by weather and water, and by enhancing the appearance of the pavement, seal coating can provide long-lasting benefits and save you money in the long run.
