Seal your driveway or parking lot with the BIG A Coal Tar asphalt sealant and prolong the life of your pavement. Shipped in convenient 5-gallon buckets, the BIG A Coal Tar sealer is a quality asphalt sealant designed to coat the surface of your asphalt to protect it from oxidation caused by UV damage, heat and moisture.

Made with coal tar, water, and mineral additives, the BIG A Coal Tar Sealer is a non-aggregate emulsion formula that will make your blacktop look great and lasts longer than many of the box store brands making it the perfect asphalt sealer for the job and it is designed to meet federal specification RP-355e.

Since our BIG A Coal Tar Asphalt Sealer doesn't include aggregate, this makes it a great product to use as a first coat sealant if you plan to do two coats. We recommend two coats, regardless, especially if your pavement is weathered and aged, but it's totally up to you whether you apply a single coat or two. For the second coat, we recommend going with our BIG A PitchGrip Coal Tar which includes a unique black aggregate that won't discolor over time like regular sand.



This product does not have an explicit application warranty period. For a full explanation, view our BIG A Consumable Warranty Policy.

We WILL warranty issues caused from shipping or packaging problems.
