What is Asphalt Sealcoating?

Asphalt sealcoating is the method of applying a thin asphalt surface treatment to surface texture of pavement to preserve or extend its pavement life. 

Sealcoating is the most important element of pavement management. It serves as a protective barrier atop asphalt surfaces to shield against deteriorating effects. 

Although asphalt is preferred for parking lots and roadways for its excellent waterproofing, flexibility and adhesive properties at an affordable cost, it must be properly maintained in order to avoid serious damage.
The application of a sealcoat protects asphalt surfaces enormously from deteriorating effects from salt, water, heat from ultraviolet rays, and chemical corrosion from gas and oil. All of these elements lead to asphalt breakdown, discoloration, cracks, voids and pot holes that can be resisted with a properly applied sealcoat. 
Atlantic Southern Paving and Sealcoating specializes in parking lot maintenance and have skilled technicians with the latest equipment to apply proper coating and revitalize your parking area. 

6 Reasons to Have ASP Sealcoat Your Asphalt Pavement

1
Beautification
Improves the appearance of your asphalt with a rich, velvety black finish. Pavement gains a “like new” appearance, which projects a positive image for your company and property.
2
Cost Effective
The price of new asphalt will always be affected by crude oil. Alternatively, the cost of sealcoating is a fraction of an asphalt overlay. Sealcoating can extends the life of existing asphalt immensely at a minimal cost.
3

Slows Oxidation and Water Penetration
Sealcoating fills voids, reducing exposure to oxygen, moisture, and UV rays. It prevents moisture from rain and snow from seeping into your asphalt pavement that may cause cracks and potholes It also protects against the sun’s rays, which can wear away 50% of your asphalt’s original thickness in just 5 years! 

4
Resists Oil and Gas Spills
Gasoline and oil breaks cause chemical corrosion that breaks down unsealed asphalt. Seal coating reduces gas and oil penetration into the asphalt.
5
Easier to Clean and Maintain
Sealcoating reduces maintenance costs considerable as it is easier to clean and maintain.
6
Safer for Drivers
Sealcoating provides added texture that improves driving safety. Over time, a pavement surface will become worn and the aggregate particles will become smooth and polished. When this happens, the roadway becomes more slippery and makes it difficult to stop suddenly. Sealcaoting increases surface friction with its added texture and allow safer roadways.

The Process
This involves milling up the existing deteriorated asphalt pavement and fixing any sub-base failures and problems by re-grading, leveling, pulverizing, and milling to a specific depth.
The specific depth to mill asphalt would be determined once the type of traffic and volume has been identified for that particular area. After the milling takes place, the area is newly paved with a new asphalt surface layer or overlay completing the mill and pave process.
