Asphalt Seal Coating & Safe Seal™

Benefits of Safe Seal

Sealcoating functions in the same way as any protective coating. It puts a barrier between the elements and the blacktop. Seal coating seals in the asphalt’s natural flexibility and performance.

Sometimes people are misled into believing sealcoating is only for beautification purposes. Professional grade seal coating not only extends the life of your asphalt investment, it makes the surface more resistant to deterioration from gasoline, oil, and chemicals. It also prevents weather-related erosion from natural elements, such as the sun, rain, frost, freezing, and thawing. Asphalt maintenance extends the life of your pavement by protecting it from the elements that destroy its structural integrity. These processes enhance the image, look,and safety of your property.

Much like regular household paint, there are many different varieties of seal coating. Of the two most predominant types of sealcoat material used today are coal tar and asphalt emulsions. You may recall during a time in your life when you experienced a driveway or parking lot that was sealed with coal tar products. They tend to emit a noxious odor, especially during a hot and sunny day. More about the effects of this odor and the substances within coal tar products can be found here.

Safe Seal™, an asphalt emulsion, gives you the benefits of sealing and protecting your pavement, but without the noxious odors or other dangerous side-effects that are associated with toxic coal tar products.

About B&E Sealcoat Products & Safe Seal™ Asphalt Sealants

Safe Seal of MichiganAfter being in the asphalt sealcoating field in the Mid-Michigan area established in 1998, I decided to venture into the asphalt emulsion manufacturing due to the growing concern with toxic coal tar sealants and bans throughout the country. I never liked to work with the unhealthy coal tar product, but it is all we had for years until I discovered Safe Seal™ Asphalt Sealer. Safe Seal has since become the leading asphalt driveway and parking lot sealer working well in harsh Michigan climates. Being a contractor as well gives us an advantage to work and see what is actually going in the field. I personally like to help new and experienced asphalt maintenance contractors advance in the pavement industry.
