Advantages to Sealcoating
Sealcoating that Works
We visit your site to confirm the suitability of sealcoat for your pavement. Once you accept our estimate, we get to work. A mixture of emulsified coal tar, water, mineral fillers, sand and various other components are combined to create the sealcoat. Our premium grade sealcoat includes select, highly stable polymer binder additives with cross-linking chemistry and fine-graded sand for traction and wearing surface.
Mechanical spray, rubber squeegee, or broom is used to apply the sealcoat. Many pavement engineers recommend a two-coat application using a squeegee application on the first coat and a spray application on the second. This allows the mechanical down pressure of a squeegee to fill cracks, displace dust particles and to insure adherence while the second spray coat provides an even filling of voids and a smooth, uniform finish.
Be sure you compare contractors carefully. Choose only a well-established, experienced, and professional contractor like Southern Striping to do your project. Southern Striping maintains insurance, follows industry specifications and uses only high-quality materials that are not diluted.

Southern Striping installs both Polytar™ and Black Diamond™, two of the premiere sealcoats on the market. Polytar™ uses polymer technology to assure longer-lasting protection and improved hot weather performance. Black Diamond™ is an asphalt emulsion sealer that is known for a deep black color as well as being environmentally friendly. Southern Striping can also design custom mixes specifically tailored for the needs of your roadways, runways, or parking lots. Call Southern Striping today for a complete analysis of your property.
While sealcoats have historically been designed for off-highway use where there are low traffic speeds, newer, more complex blends are being used on roads, highways, and runways.
Sealcoats typically last between 3-5 years, depending on the quality of the material used and the millage (thickness) of the actual application. Sealcoats have a shorter life span than heavier-duty treatments like slurry seal and micro surfacing.
