If you want to keep asphalt looking clean and in good condition, it must be sealed on a regular basis to prevent the onset of decay and cracking. A professional grade asphalt sealer and the right sealcoating equipment is necessary for driveways, paths, parking lots, and virtually anything paved with asphalt. Most asphalt experts recommend that it be sealed approximately every two years. Oil stains, cracks, and potholes should be repaired as soon as possible to prevent further asphalt deterioration.
Asphalt is made up of rock, sand, tar and bitumen and starts out as a dense liquid that is able to move with the ground rather than cracking. Over time the asphalt surface dries out and loses its flexible properties. The sun basically cooks (dries out or oxidizes) the liquids right out of the asphalt surface.
This process does not happen overnight, but as everyone knows asphalt is very black when it is first layed. Over time turns greyish in color. This graying process is called "oxidization". The Asphalt liquids have been cooked out leaving only dried out tar and bitumen on the surface.
If you have a brand new asphalt surface you have a major advantage, as it is has not been oxidized and dried out YET! It is time for asphalt sealcoating.... but, make sure to use an excellent asphalt sealer before it greys and dries out!
If you have an old asphalt surface that is grey and dried out it is still important to protect it from the elements. If you don't do it now it will ONLY get more dry and therefore become more fragile and need replacing before that of a sealcoated driveway.
Once the asphalt sealcoating has been done it creates a barrier against the natural outdoor elements (sun, rain, snow, etc.) and is the one that takes the abuse rather than your asphalt surface.
How to Sealcoat
First, take our free 4-day email asphalt maintenance course. It will teach you everything you need to know about asphalt surfaces and will give you helpful tips on what asphalt repair products are required and how to effectively seal your driveway. You'll learn the right techniques for preparing your driveway before you seal, how to fill asphalt cracks, and how to use asphalt sealcoating equipment properly.
You'll also be able to purchase both asphalt repair products and sealcoating equipment at the best prices, delivered directly to your door. Remember, because there are a number of asphalt sealers available on the market, you want to make sure that you select only quality asphalt repair products. The pros at AsphaltKingdom.com can help you choose exactly what you need to ensure that your asphalt is protected from the elements for years to come.
Coal Tar Asphalt Sealer is the product most commonly used for driveways and other small areas of residential asphalt. It protects against sun exposure, rain, snow, ice, and even tree roots. Remember to mix or shake it well before application. The consistency of the asphalt sealer should look thick. The product can be applied with a brush or squeegee, but with professional sealcoating equipment, the time involved with sealing asphalt can be reduced dramatically.
A sealcoating spray system is the easiest way to seal a large expanse of asphalt and is the most frequently used type of sealcoating equipment that the professionals use. However, if you have a small driveway, a squeegee may be just what you need to get your driveway protected.
Sealcoat Business Opportunity
Who knows? You may just discover that you enjoyed sealing your asphalt so much that you want to start your own sealcoating business. Whether you are looking for a part-time business to provide extra income or you're thinking about opening your own full-time asphalt sealcoat business, Asphalt Kingdom has exactly the right information, asphalt products, and sealcoating equipment you will want to make your business a success.
With your own sealcoating business, you can rapidly make at least $200-$300 in profit daily while being able to work outside and set your own hours. Some contractors even make up to $600 a day.
For contractors, having the necessary asphalt repair machines to produce fast, professional results is an absolute necessity. Far too many individuals start their business with little else than a couple of buckets of asphalt sealer, a squeegee, and a pickup truck. However, they quickly find out that they are losing money and not seeing the desired results that they need to earn a good living in the asphalt industry. This very scenario is what has put many, many contractors out of business before they actually had an opportunity for real success.

Contractor and Professional-Grade Equipment
Asphalt Kingdom has all of the equipment any asphalt maintenance business needs to do sealcoating, crack repair, pothole patching, and line striping.
Unlike other equipment that has limited uses, asphalt sealer spray machines are versatile enough to be used on all asphalt surfaces from residential driveways and walkways to parking lots and roads.
When determining what equipment you should invest in when just starting your asphalt paving business, it can be confusing to determine what pieces to initially purchase. Very few contractors start with enough capital to purchase everything they need. Thus, it's a smart business decision to buy only those items that will generate income the quickest that will deliver the greatest profit. Sealing equipment is simply the most profit-generating pieces of equipment that an asphalt contractor can purchase.
Unlike other segments of the asphalt paving industry that have declined with the slowdown of the economy, the demand for sealcoating has actually increased. This is primarily due to the fact that more commercial and residential property owners are choosing to maintain existing asphalt instead of replacing it with new material.
The best way to protect the long-term condition of asphalt is by keeping it properly sealed. With commercial-grade equipment, contractors can generate steady work from property owners looking to save money. At Asphalt Kingdom, we have asphalt sealer spray machines in a variety of sizes to fit your specific business needs. All deliver professional results and are easy to use.
For crack cleaning, we highly recommend our AK2800 Crack Jet which throws 2800 degrees of heat into cracks, followed by a blast of 90 cfm of compressed air to completely blow away even the most tightly compacted debris. Unlike other crack cleaning tools, Asphalt Kingdom's Crack Jet is ideal for cold and wet weather conditions.
Our AK10 two-in-one crackfill melter applicator is the most essential tool for anyone wanting to use rubberized crack filler. This crack repair machine melts the blocks and applies it directly to asphalt cracks. The AK10 is a convenient cart that squeegees the melted filler as you walk and apply the crackfill. Made of heavy gauge steel and double powder-coated for a professional look, the AK10 should be in every asphalt contractor's equipment line.
We carry a range of line stripers for any parking lot owner looking to do their own parking lot lines and for any contractor who paints parking lots, athletic fields, airports, and factory floors. For small parking lot owners, we suggest the AK Super Striper, PowrLiner 550, or PowrLiner 850. For contractors, it depends on the size of your line striping jobs. Watch our video on how to choose a line striper:

Parts and accessories are an essential part of getting the sealcoating job done, so don't forget to factor in this part of asphalt sealcoating equipment.
Buying Asphalt Sealcoating Equipment? Buy From An Expert
Maybe you've had this experience too: you wander into your local grocery store and there, between the bananas and cherry cola, there's a whole new section carrying clothes, makeup, pots and pans . . . none of it very good quality, but all of it conveniently located right there.
If you're like me, you took a look the first time . . . and then . . . never again. Why? Because I know that if I want to buy products that last, I need to buy them from an expert.
The same holds true when you're shopping for Asphalt Sealcoating Equipment. Sure, you could go to a store that sells everything from go-karts to blue jeans, and get a low-priced sprayer, but you're not getting the quality that a company who specializes is going to give you.
Just like you wouldn't buy your computer at a drugstore, don't by an asphalt spray system from any one other than a professional, reputable company that knows what they're talking about. Remember, if something goes wrong on the job site, you want to be able to call someone who knows the equipment you're using inside and out, and who can get you up and running FAST. Try doing that when you get a switchboard in another country somewhere.
Wherever you choose to take your business, make sure that the company stands behind their products with an iron-clad warranty and free service. If there is any doubt that a company is reputable, steer clear! Remember 'lowest price' and 'highest quality' rarely go hand in hand. Research online, read testimonials, and pick up the phone and call the company you are thinking of buying from - if they won't talk to you before you buy, they certainly won't after they have your money!
Insist on doing business with someone in the industry, and you also open yourself up to all kinds of extras you may not have thought of - helpful tips and advice you can use in your daily work, a trusted source when you need new or hard-to-find equipment, reminders when it's time to stock up or spring clean . . . the kind of thing that comes from dealing with a reliable company.
