When it comes to any pavement management plan; Sealcoating is at the top of the list. Sealcoating, in itself, consists of the application of either a coal tar pitch or asphalt cement that is mixed with inert fillers, water emulsifying agents and/or additives. This mixture, applied in thin coats protects off-highway pavement surfaces against oil, gasoline, salt, water and ultraviolet rays. Asphalt is in a constant battle against the sun and water. The sun dries out the natural oils essential for the pavements strength and flexibility. Water is the main enemy of asphalt because of the freeze and thaw cycle. Water expands as it freezes and contracts as it melts. This cycle is extremely damaging to a porous surface such as asphalt. Even occasional rain will break down and wash away the asphalt binder in time
