New Mexico’s weather is tough on asphalt and all our roadways. By sealcoating annually, asphalt can be preserved for an extended period of time.
Sealcoating asphalt is especially necessary in cold climates and high altitude locations. The sealcoat stops the oxidation of asphalt resulting from harsh weather like rain, snow and uv radiation from the hot summer sun.
A quality seal coat is an asphalt surface treatment that consists of a slurry type blend of an asphalt emulsion, coal tar, mineral filler and latex modifiers. Seal coating provides lasting protection against water oxidation and ultra-violet damage. As the name implies, this process seals the asphalt surface and restores the original rich, black appearance of freshly laid asphalt.
Restores Original Rich, Black Look
Seal coating provides an attractive black surface that is ideal for painting lines and other markers.
On older pavements seal coating replaces fine particles lost from the asphalt surface due to oxidation. Seal coating leaves a smooth, clean surface ideal for sweeping, lowering cleaning costs.
