With multiple brands and grades available, choosing an asphalt driveway sealer can be overwhelming. The best tactics are to slow down, take a deep breath and educate yourself on the various types of driveway sealers. All asphalt driveway sealers provide driveway beautification and can increase the value of your Bay Area property, but protection and longevity will vary with type and grade. Identifying your sealant needs based on information rather than brand will help in choosing the right product for the job.

Coal Tar Driveway Sealers

Black jack driveway sealer reviews

Coal tar driveway sealers resist water, oil and gasoline and provide protection from ultraviolet rays, which can cause driveways to crack and deteriorate over time. Made from refined coal and other additives, coal tar sealants provide longer-lasting protection than asphalt-based sealers. A drawback of coal tar sealers are the volatile organic compound emissions during application. Higher VOC levels equate to high odor and possible environmental effects.

Asphalt Driveway Sealers

Asphalt-based driveway sealers resist water but offer reduced protection against oil, gasoline and ultraviolet rays. Made from crude oil and other additives, asphalt sealers may require more frequent applications than coal tar sealants. On the upside, they produce less odor during application due to lower VOCs as compared to coal tar driveway sealers.

Acrylic Polymer Driveway Sealers

Acrylic polymer driveway sealers contain mostly man-made chemical ingredients and provide all of the UV, water, gasoline and oil protection of coal tar. Synthetic sealers are on the higher end of the price scale but have lower VOC emissions and increased longevity over asphalt and coal tar sealers.

Driveway Sealer Grades

Deciphering grades is perhaps the most difficult and confusing aspect of choosing an asphalt sealer. Since grades are assigned by individual manufacturers, one company's 'professional grade' may be another's 'commercial grade.' The best course of action is to check the product warranty and choose the sealer based on the manufacturer's stated life span.
