Application Method for Sealcoating Asphalt Parking Lot and Driveway
There has always been and always will be an ongoing debate as to whether spray on or squeegee is the best method of application.Depending upon who you are talking with and how much they have invested in their equipment will generally set the tone for their recommendation.
Bucket and Squeegee System is $46.95 Pump Flow Agitation Tank Sprayer is $900.00
Hand Mechanical Agitation Tank Sprayer is $3950.00 Power Mechanical Agitation Sprayer is $7899.00.
*Of course you could spend more or less on any of these systems, We prefer the power hydraulic agitation sprayers.
Whats the real difference ? (Sand) about the only realistic way to mix sand is to have a power agitating system or a very athletic helper turning the crank on the mechanical system. Some will say the pump agitation works just as well, maybe, but sand is heavy and sealer does have viscosity.
Why is sand beneficial ? well it adds a degree of traction for foot traffic (not as slick when wet) and has a tendency to thicken the seal coating. Whether Squeegee or Pump the important part is the mixing.
Product for Sealcoating
Think along the terms of motor oil. This one has additives for increased mileage, the other cleans the motor, the best one will even wash the car while its running down the road. All said and done its oil,
it does what oil does. Now are there additives that make sense, of course there are but the point here is, The quality of work is more about preparation and dilution of product than manufacturer additive claims. Taking into consideration you are comparing Contractor Grade Products.
Preparation makes the difference,
Treating of oiled areas, proper crack filling,environmental conditions, temperature etc. and whether or not the contractor is watering down the product more than the manufacturer recommends.
