Regular maintenance is an essential part of any effort to maximize the life of your asphalt paving – and sealcoating should be at the heart of any maintenance plan. Sealcoating is the application of a liquid coating that hardens and provides a protective seal against much of the common damage that impacts asphalt surfaces. The sealcoat itself consists of asphaltic emulsion mixed with inert fillers, water, emulsifying agents, and additives. Sealcoating is an economical solution to protect asphalt against ongoing damage while extending the life of the pavement and avoiding costly repairs.
Based on years of experience, GPM has developed and manufactured its own proprietary blend of sealcoat. We expertly manage quality control throughout the process, and control the constituents of the finished product.

Benefits of Sealcoating
Sealcoating is very economical compared to replacement. Here are a few more reasons to use sealcoating:
- Slows Oxidation & Water Penetration
This also keeps the binding in good shape, resulting in fewer failures.
- Resists Oil & Gasoline Spills
As a petroleum product itself, asphalt is vulnerable to penetration by oil & gas dripping from vehicles — which can soften and break down the asphalt.
- Improves Appearance
Sealcoating makes your asphalt look brand new — and that makes everyone happier. A deep black asphalt surface is your property’s welcome mat.
When to Sealcoat
If you can see the colors on individual pieces of the aggregate in your asphalt, it’s time to start sealcoating.
In mild climates, like here in California, sealcoat should be applied 12 to 24 months after your asphalt is installed. Subsequent treatments are typically recommended every 3 to 5 years after that.
