What is Sealcoat ?
A sealcoat consists of either coal tar pitch (derived from coke, a by-product of the steel production
process) or asphalt cement mixed with inert fillers, water, emulsifying agents or additives. Applied in
thin coats, this surface treatment is used to protect off-highway asphalt pavement surfaces, such as
parking lots, driveways, runways, service stations, and heliports.

Seal coating like all pavement maintenance repairs is a temporary means of inhibiting pavement

sealcoat the lot in sections. Failure to keep cars off the sealcoat before it dries will result in tracking
throughout the lot and onto other surfaces.
