Asphalt degrades over time and consequently needs regular care in order to maintain its worth and to lengthen its useful life. The conditions that lead to asphalt failure of parking lots in North Carolina are: oxidation from sun, water, salt used during the cold season, automotive fluids and damage from traffic. The effects of these variables are weak and bleached asphalt which is likely to produce potholes and cracks.
A new asphalt parking lot has a beautiful, dark black color, but in North Carolina the oxidation process begins immediately which, over time, causes the pavement to slowly turn into light gray color. This oxidation process can by quite intense because it seeps deep into the pavement and the small agents used in the asphalt, such as sand and gravel, becomes loose and eventually taken away by wind and rain. As a result, the pavement area becomes rough and cracked. Sealcoating is the ultimate answer to help prevent oxidation. Here are a few ways it helps:
- Protect the asphalt with quality sealcoating
- Sealcoating helps stop the oxidation process
- Sealcoating helps stretch your investment dollar
- Seal coating forms a solid barrier on the pavement
- Stops harmful UV rays from eating away at the pavement
- Seals out the harmful effects from the elements
Asphalt Preventative Care – Sealcoating
Sealcoating applied to an asphalt parking area provides an effective barrier or seal between the elements above the sealcoating and the asphalt surface below it. Below the surface the sealcoating stays on the moist side which makes it pliable and as a result, resistant to cracking.
