Sealcoating could easily double the life of your asphalt pavement by protecting it from its enemies: sun, oxidation, water, gasoline, oil and other types of petroleum based products. DFW Pavement Services applies quality seal coating products from GemSeal and we tailor the application for each situation to form a tough protective coating over your pavement.

Properly designed parking lots rarely wear out from traffic. Surface deterioration is usually caused by the weather - the effects of the sun and rain are certain.

Oxidation - the graying in color of asphalt pavement - is a sign of fatigue, aging and general surface deterioration. When unprotected pavement becomes oxidized, the aggregate will begin to ravel from the surface making the pavement rough. Once the surface becomes brittle, cracks develop, and the pavement deteriorates. In addition, the water which accumulates in open pavement structures is a major cause of pavement damage.

Preventive maintenance is essential - Act before these damaging elements get a hold of your pavement. Application of a rubber fortified coal tar emulsion is the most cost effective maintenance procedure available. This is called sealcoating. When you sealcoat asphalt, you double its life by shielding it from a variety of destructive forces. In addition to life extending benefits, sealcoating also enhances the appearance of your pavement by giving it an attractive, easy-to-clean, slate black color finish.

Silica Sand is usually added to coal tar sealer to provide a heavier wearing surface. The addition of silica sand extends the life of the sealer and makes the surface skid resistant.
