What is Sealcoating?
Asphalt sealcoating is a liquid coating of an asphalt surface that is used to help protect asphalt. Protection is created in much the same manner as staining wood. Asphalt pavement is essentially made up of rock, oil and sand. The oil within the asphalt pavement helps hold together the rock and sand, but when the oil begins to lose its ability to bond, the asphalt pavement will begin to unravel and deteriorate.
