Description

Our Big A Asphalt Emulsion Driveway Sealer is an environmentally friendly asphalt emulsion based sealer. This is a professional duty sealer with high solid contents that are designed for the sealing and resurfacing of asphalt driveways, cart paths, bike paths, and parking lots of all sizes. It is absorbed by the asphalt pavement and helps the pavement stay pliable, and fills small cracks and voids in the pavement surface adding extra protection from salts and moisture.

Our premium Big A asphalt emulsion sealer is formulated using the most advanced polymer technology to provide improved curing characteristics, durability, adhesion, and color retention - greatly extending the life of the pavement by completely sealing the surface of the asphalt to prevent damage from weather and oils.

This sealer is applied using a Brushcoater or Sealcoat Squeegee and pavement needs to be repaired and clean before application.

How's The Weather?

Depending on the time of year, weather can be pretty crazy.  If you want to know if you're safe to sealcoat once you've received your material, head over to dafscale.com and plugin your zip-code.  Those folks put together an awesome tool for giving you a really good idea about the weather up to a day and a half out from the time you check.

Once you enter your zip code, you'll be presented with a meter that tells you if the weather is good enough to sealcoat at that particular hour.  If not, you'll see a forecast a little further down the page that looks at the next 1-12, 24 and 36 hours. This gives you a really good indication by the hour, whether you're safe to sealcoat or you should hold off another day or two.

Give it a spin and check your weather forcast for today!

Frequently Asked Questions

How much sand can I add to the Big A Asphalt Emulsion Sealer?

Short Answer: None - Our sealer comes pre-mixed, ready-to-use with 70% of it's makeup being solids. This includes a special ground slate compound already mixed in for abrasives to create a long lasting sealer. We do NOT recommend adding any additional abrasives such as sand to this product as it will alter its intended makeup and consistency. Our slate compound has proven to be a far superior alternative to sand and we have full confidence that you will be very happy with the results of this product.

How much water can I add to the Big A Asphalt Emulsion Sealer?

Short Answer: Upto 5% by volume - Our asphalt emulsion sealer comes pre-mixed as a ready-to-use product with the appropriate amount of water added for maximum performance of the product. You can "dilute" the product by adding upto 5% water by volume but we highly discourage you from adding water or attempting to dilute the product to "make it go further".

I live in the north, where the climate get's pretty cold. Can I still use this product?

Short Answer: Yes - Once applied to pavement, this product will not degrade in colder temperatures. However, unused, this product cannot be frozen or applied in freezing temperatures without damaging the physical makeup of the material.

How long will the Big A asphalt emulsion sealer last?

Short Answer: Approximately 3 - 4 years - Our Big A asphalt emulsion sealer is designed with 70% solids, almost 40% more than your average big-box store sealers. They advertise a 2 year sealer, but in reality, it might last 1 year and if you're lucky, 2. If properly applied, our sealer will last approximately 3 to 4 years in low traffic conditions like a driveway or small business parking lot. To achieve maximum lifespan, this product can NOT be diluted nor have additional sand additives. Also, the pavement must be cleaned of all dust and debris prior to sealing. Failure to comply with these application requirements will greatly reduce the overall lifespan of this product.

Can this product be applied with a sealcoat sprayer? What about a sealcoat brush or squeegee?

Short Answer: Yes - All of the sealcoat sealers we offer, are designed to be applied with either a sealcoat sprayer or manually with a sealcoat brush or squeegee.
