Even though asphalt alone is a robust paving material, getting your asphalt surface sealcoated for extra protection is always recommended. Sealcoating is essentially a protective layer for your roads and pavement – and protects the integrity of your asphalt’s structure from crumbling apart.


By sealcoating, you are essentially coating your surface with a final layer to extend the life of your parking lots and driveways. Our experts always finish off your asphalt project with a seal coat as a barrier against water erosion, freeze-thaw damage, harsh UV rays, surface deterioration, and oil stains.


All in all, sealcoating acts like a shield for roads and pavement thanks to its high tolerance against surface damage.

What is Sealcoating?


When you want to add a protective layer to your asphalt pavement to help stop damage and deterioration, sealcoating is the way to go. Asphalt is constantly being bombarded by harmful environmental factors, including:

– Sunlight and UV rays, which break down the bonds that hold asphalt together
– Moisture that causes cracks and warping through erosion, freezing and thawing
– Gas and oils that leak from cars
– Motor oil leaks, oxidation, UV rays, and water
– Extra-heavy vehicles parking or driving on it


A sealcoat that is properly applied adds an extra layer between your paved surface and the elements working to damage it, creating a barrier like hardwood finish protects wood floors. Best of all, the process can increase the lifespan of your pavement by decades.

The Sealcoating Process

Sealcoating an existing asphalt project is most effective in the spring when temperatures are milder, but it can be accomplished during any relatively warm time of year. The process involves one of several types of sealants, chosen based on your project’s scope and needs, and must be allowed to completely cure before driving or walking on your pavement’s surface.

When It’s Time to Sealcoat

If you’ve recently invested in fresh asphalt paving, or see your legacy paved surfaces breaking down, becoming warped, falling apart, swelling, thinning around the edges, or otherwise taking on some significant wear and tear, it’s likely time to sealcoat.

Preventative efforts always work better early on, so the sooner you sealcoat, the better off you’ll be. It can be reapplied every few years, too, ensuring your protective barrier stays strong and lowering the overall expenses involved in asphalt repairs and maintenance.

6 Reasons to Have Matas Paving Sealcoat Your Asphalt Pavement:



 Improves the appearance of your asphalt with a rich, velvety black finish. Pavement gains a “like new” appearance, which projects a positive image for your company and property.


2-Cost Effective
The price of new asphalt will always be affected by crude oil. Alternatively, the cost of sealcoating is a fraction of an asphalt overlay. Sealcoating can extends the life of existing asphalt immensely at a minimal cost.


3-Slows Oxidation and Water Penetration
Sealcoating fills voids, reducing exposure to oxygen, moisture, and UV rays. It prevents moisture from rain and snow from seeping into your asphalt pavement that may cause cracks and potholes It also protects against the sun’s rays, which can wear away 50% of your asphalt’s original thickness in just 5 years!


4-Resists Oil and Gas Spills
Gasoline and oil breaks cause chemical corrosion that breaks down unsealed asphalt. Seal coating reduces gas and oil penetration into the asphalt.


5-Easier to Clean and Maintain
Sealcoating reduces maintenance costs considerable as it is easier to clean and maintain.


6-Safer for Drivers
Sealcoating provides added texture that improves driving safety. Over time, a pavement surface will become worn and the aggregate particles will become smooth and polished. When this happens, the roadway becomes more slippery and makes it difficult to stop suddenly. Sealcaoting increases surface friction with its added texture and allow safer roadways.
