Sealcoating and Preparation

First, our maintenance crew flags and barricades any areas that need to be blocked off as they pull up to the job. Second, we trim the grass edges of the blacktop clearing them to completely seal all pavement surfaces. Third, we use industrial blowers and steel bristled brooms to get the surface completely clear of all debris. This is done to ensure superior adhesion of the sealer to the blacktop surface. Fourth, we treat any oil spots with IMPERIAL oil spot primer. This is done to make certain that the sealer will bond to these areas and protect the asphalt from further damage. Fifth, we perform an appropriate crack repair. Finally, we apply our custom blended GemSeal® sealer with TARMAX additive and silica sand.

ACT Products and Services


We use the highest quality commercial grade sealer on the market today: GemSeal®, with TARMAX R-100 latex modifier additive. This combination creates a tough protective skin over the asphalt that can double the life of your asphalt when applied with a scheduled maintenance program, about every 2 or 3 years depending upon traffic. GemSeal® is a 100% coal tar emulsion pavement sealer that resists oxidation from the sun, rain, snow, gas, oils, salt, etc. Sealer Application Process: We provide the best workmanship possible by applying the sealer to your asphalt by hand, using specialized 3 and 4-foot professional sealcoat brushes.  This process is far superior to the spray-on techniques used by many other companies.

ACT Crack Repair

We use the highest quality crack repair method possible. We will assess the cracks and clean the area with a wire brush or broom to ensure proper cleanliness for the utmost adhesion. Under special circumstances and depending on the severity of the cracks, we will route out all cracks between 1/8″ – 3/8”. The crack is routed out to ½” wide, this is done to have a clean uniform crack for proper adhesion and to ensure there is enough material to seal and protect the crack through the long cold winters, especially through the freeze/thaw cycle. We then use a premium hot rubber material that we apply with a 3″crack banding applicator. This is the same method that is used on our state highways.
