Why is conditioning the way to go?
Asphalt, bituminous, or tar, whatever you call it, is a byproduct of the oil industry and not intended for use as a coating. This is why it is so cheap to buy. It is a way the oil industry has found to get rid of their waste. Asphalt is a complex mixture of hydrocarbons that is produced when crude oil is refined. It is a black, sticky substance that is used to make roads, parking lots, and other paved surfaces. Asphalt is also used in roofing materials and other products. The production of asphalt has a number of environmental impacts. For example, the refining of crude oil releases air pollutants, including greenhouse gases. Mining sand and gravel, which are used to make asphalt, can also damage the environment. In addition, asphalt is a major source of air pollution. When asphalt roads and parking lots are exposed to sunlight, they release volatile organic compounds (VOCs). VOCs are harmful to human health and can contribute to the formation of smog. Asphalt can also pollute waterways when it breaks down. When asphalt roads and parking lots are exposed to rain and snow, the asphalt can leach into the runoff. This runoff can then pollute rivers, lakes, and streams.
The reason why you see so many blacktop parking lots crack and break apart is that they are not intended to be exposed to UV Rays. The asphalt used immediately starts to deteriorate when exposed to sunlight. This is why you need to seal these lots every few years. It is not to seal from the rain and weather but what it does is soften the asphalt to buy more time. Asphalt is a relatively soft material that is susceptible to cracking and breaking. This is especially true when asphalt is exposed to sunlight and heat. The UV rays in sunlight can cause the asphalt to become brittle and crack. The heat from the sun can also cause the asphalt to soften and become more likely to break. To protect asphalt surfaces from the sun and heat, they need to be sealed on a regular basis. Asphalt sealers are typically applied every few years. Sealers help to protect the asphalt from UV rays and heat, which can extend the life of the asphalt surface. Our Bio Blacktop is designed with no harsh chemicals to exceed most standard products on the market. It is 100 times easier to apply and will not harm the applicator or the environment. Because of its non-hazardous chemical properties, we are able to meet the standards set by the BioPreferred Program. Bio Blacktop on average will outlast cheaper asphalt products by years and will not leave a bad smell that you will notice for months afterwards. Bio Blacktop is a new type of asphalt sealer that is made with natural oils and other environmentally friendly ingredients. Bio Blacktop is designed to be more durable than traditional asphalt sealers and to last longer. Bio Blacktop is a good choice for people who are looking for an environmentally friendly and durable asphalt sealer. It is also a good choice for people who are sensitive to strong odors.
