Benefits of Sealcoating
Prevents Water Damage
On an unsealed asphalt surface, water will seep into the asphalt pores. Water will erode the asphalt surface causing cracks and potholes to form. If water freezes in porous cement, it will expand and cause cracking.
Defends Against Chemical Damage
Motor oil and other vehicle fluids can saturate and break down asphalt surfaces. Bitumen is the active binding agent in asphalt cement and is made of a crude oil by-product. Motor oil will absorb the bitumen, which will dissolve its binding properties. potholes and erosion.
Protects From Sun Damage
The UV rays from the sun will oxidize the asphalt cement causing it to lose its binding properties. Accelerated oxidation will create loose gravel at the asphalt surface, and will break down the pavements thickness.
