Commercial asphalt is all-important in American transportation. Without asphalt roads, transportation would become much more tedious, never mind dangerous. While commercial asphalt provides a safe, smooth surface on which countless vehicles can run each day, taking care of that surface is also crucial. Before jumping to use the first maintenance service one sees, it could help understand the different types of commercial asphalt sealers available.
Coal Tar Sealers
Coal tar sealers are the most popular form of commercial asphalt sealers today. They do a fantastic job of preventing oil, water, and debris from staining or seeping through the pavement. They also have significant durability and a notable shiny finish. This water-based sealant comes about through baking coal, from which manufacturers extract coke and add it to a mixture of coal tar and other additives for maximum durability. Because of the coke ingredient, coal tar sealers are petroleum-resistant.
Fast-dry sealers are ideal for high-traffic areas where life doesn’t have time to stop. Gas station lots, hospital lots, and highways are some of the types of commercial asphalt that could use fast-dry sealers. As the name implies, this type of sealer dries swiftly, even in under an hour. It is due to the geotextile fibers added to the mixture. Because this sealer offers this high-value benefit, it is more expensive than some other options.
Asphalt Emulsion Sealers
Asphalt emulsion sealers are perhaps as popular as coal tar sealers. They are known as the environmentally-friendly version of coal tar sealers, due to the reduction in oxidation, smell, and skin irritation, and the preservation of air quality. One should note that in using asphalt emulsion sealers, one must apply it between May and September during optimal temperatures, generally limiting them to daytime application.
