For most property owners sealing pavement is applying a coating to their driveway or parking lot. The average over the counter coating does nothing to preserve the asphalt and only provides an aesthetic color to make it black again. Asphalt is like a sponge, it has fissures and voids which allow air and moisture the two most damaging elements to enter pavement. Air dries out the asphalt, allowing more moisture to enter the pavement which deteriorates the asphalt through evaporation in hot weather and from expansion as the moisture freezes. Hawk Seale is designed to fill these fissures and voids from the bottom up to prevent air and moisture from deteriorating the asphalt surface.
Yes, simply spray or roll the Hawk Seale solution on to the point of running off or puddling, we recommend three coats to fill the pavement from the bottom up. Normal application rate is .35 to .42 tenths gallon per square yard on average.
Yes, we discount multiple drum purchases after the 1st drum. 4 drum pallets are discounted to Tote quantity pricing. Totes are no longer offered.
Once Hawk Seale has been absorbed into the pavement it is designed to flex with the change in temperature, it is not affected by extreme cold or heat.
Simply email us at https://hawkseale.com with the dimensions and we can calculate quantity and cost for you. We will also send application and tool guides.
Take the length times width in feet for square feet-Divide the square feet by 9 for square yards- Divide square yards by 11 for gallons of concentrate needed at the recommended 1 +/- gallon per square yard for millings.
Example: 100 x 10 = 1000 divided by 9 = 111.1. Divide 111.1 by 11 equals 10.1 gallons of concentrate needed.
When sealing existing asphalt Multiply the gallons needed for millings by .35 Example 10,1 times .39 = 3.5 gallons of concentrate.
Hawk Seale does not require expensive equipment, we are happy to send Application and Tool guides upon request.
We sell and ship directly to the customer. We do have a number of contractors/applicators who furnish and apply our products upon request.
Once Hawk Seale has been absorbed into the pavement it is impervious to the elements and does not break down.
Asphalt needs traffic to keep it compressed, without traffic it opens up creating voids that take in more air and moisture and deteriorates the asphalt faster. Hawk Seale fills these voids with a copolymer base that stays flexible to prevent air and water from entering the pavement. Our first treated streets are now 27 years old with no or very little deterioration.
We do not, as we have no control of the dilution and mixing, the application process, the weather, or the condition of the surface or millings that Hawk Seale is applied to.
Lawn and Garden sprayers do not provide enough volume to saturate millings efficiently. Hawk Seale is an adhesive product and is not designed to be used in lawn and garden sprayers as it will leave a sticky residue.
For both sealing and re-bonding millings to millings we recommend a "Ground Temperature" of 60 degrees, rising, and above freezing during night time temperatures. Warmer temperatures will provide better penetration and compaction which is very important to getting a deep durable mat. Curing time for millings will also be reduced in warmer weather.
Once the invoice is paid, shipping time is 2-4 days in the continental US and Canada.
We currently only ship to the Continental US and Canada and Mexico.
