CoolSeal by GuardTop® is a high-performance, water-based, asphalt emulsion sealcoat designed to achieve lower surface temperatures through its lighter color and reflectivity. CoolSeal by GuardTop® is applied like conventional sealcoats to asphalt surfaces to protect and maintain the quality and longevity of the surface. While most cool pavements on the market are polymer based, CoolSeal is a water-based, asphalt emulsion. CoolSeal by GuardTop® meets Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and LEED requirements of 33 percent reflectivity and can last longer than conventional sealcoats.
Conventional sealcoats and dark asphalt surfaces absorb heat and energy produced by the sun, which results in higher surface temperatures that can reach in excess of 160 degrees Fahrenheit.
CoolSeal by GuardTop® can reduce surface temperatures by 10 to 30 degrees Fahrenheit (under certain conditions) and creates safe and comfortable environments for people and animals.
