Differences Between Sealcoat and Slurry Coat
Here’s some of the most common questions about both asphalt sealcoating and slurry coating.
What’s the difference between seal coat and slurry coat products?
An asphalt sealcoating is a very thin liquid asphalt emulsion with super fine aggregates like sand and special polymers and additives to protect the pavement. Slurry coats are made from similar liquid asphalt products, only mixed with thicker aggregates, more like a very thin layer of asphalt pavement.
When is asphalt sealcoating better?
If you’re looking to provide a protective layer over asphalt with minor damage or no damage, and asphalt sealcoating is a good idea. This option is recommended for new asphalt to prevent future wear and damage, as well as a good last step after crack filling or other minor repair services.
When should you get a slurry coat?
A slurry coating is recommended by pavement experts for asphalt that has deeper cracks, more damage to the top layer of pavement, has been repaired recently, or has a more uneven asphalt surface. A slurry coat is a great final step after pothole repairs and patching to create a new surface over the entire pavement.
