What is Sealcoating?
Sealcoating is a bituminous-based product (sometimes acrylic) that’s applied to the surface of asphalt. When it cures, it protects asphalt from degradation and weathering—including from cars, UV light, precipitation and more. These things will all wear down the asphalt with time. Sealcoating adds a protective barrier to stop the damage. It’s non-stick and non-slip, and won’t change the appearance of your asphalt except for adding a slight shine to it.
Sealcoating is generally applied via brushes or rollers, right on top of asphalt. For best results it should be applied to freshly-paved asphalt or surfaces that have recently been patched or refinished.
