Guardtop Mission Statement The goal of Guardtop is to produce an asphalt seal coating that has deeper and longer-lasting color, firmer body and greater durability than any other product in the industry. Since 1983 Guardtop seal coating products have been in the business of pavement preservation. Our goal is to protect and preserve asphalt investments. Our formula consists of the highest quality additives coupled with the highest residual water proofing materials in the industry. We consistently produce a seal coat with deeper, longer- lasting color, firmer body and greater durability than any other product on the market.
LEED Certification, U S G B C Member, Cradle to Cradle Certification The LEED program is a world wide recognized organization that promotes green building and maintenance standards. Guardtop is recognized as a green product by LEED. Currently the only seal coat that has this distinction. These green product certifications have opened up many doors for the Guardtop product line. State and National Parks like Zion, Big Sur, Big Bend. School Districts. State and County agencies.
The Finish Product is consistent in color and texture. Example of spray applied two coat application
Recommended Application Rates Proper application rates depend greatly upon the type and condition of the pavement. Porous or very old pavement absorbs a greater amount of the seal coat, therefore requiring more material. When there are many exposed rocks and aggregate in the pavement, a greater depth of seal coat will be required for proper coverage. For best results, Guardtop should always be applied with two coats. Smooth Dense pavement: 15 to 20 gallons per 1,000 sq. ft. Medium surface: 30 gallons per 1,000 sq. ft. Rough, aged surface; 45 gallons per 1,000 sq. ft. Excessively rough surfaces: 50 gallons per 1,000 sq. ft.
Preparation of Surface Prior to applying Guardtop seal coat the surface must be prepped for the product. Proper preparation ensures a long lasting, quality job that will ensure customer satisfaction. The following simple guidelines are to help insure a quality job Clean And Fill All Cracks For asphalt cracks that are 1/8 inch or larger, clean by brushing and treat with weed killer. Next apply Guardtop Crack filler. The crack should be filled to match the surface of the rest of the pavement. For larger cracks, Guardtop Crack filler may have to be applied several times. For large cracks that have broken asphalt and for areas that have broken asphalt, we recommend that the loose asphalt be removed and patched with new asphalt. Extreme low spots should also be filled with new asphalt. It is recommended that new asphalt should cure for a period of 30 days before sealing with Guardtop seal coat. Prepare Oil and Grease Residue Seal Coatings will not adhere to surfaces with excessive oil and grease. For a quality job, clean all oil and grease deposits with a degreasing solution using a stiff bristle broom or a power operated broom. Areas completely saturated are recommended to be removed and replaced with new asphalt. Then apply Guardtop Oil Seal to all oil and grease stained surfaces. Simply brush in Guardtop Oil Seal to the surface insuring full coverage over the stain.
Final Surface Cleaning After all pavement repairs have been completed, the surface should be clean and free of all dirt, debris and existing pavement loose graveled particles. Please note that dirt and loose debris will restrict the adherence of the seal coat. To clean the surface use a power broom, power blower or flush the surface with high pressure water. This process will ensure a long lasting quality job. Mist For best Guardtop Seal Coat results it is recommended that the surface be sprayed with a mist of water in an amount that will leave the surface damp and free of standing water or puddles. The misting procedure is critical when the ambient temperature is hot and on bright sunny days or when the pavement is excessively aged and porous. In these instances, the pavement will draw the water out of the seal coat at a more rapid rate than recommended unless the surface is prewatered. Priming Excessively Weathered Surfaces For excessively weathered surfaces a primer or fog seal should be applied to the surface. The primer should consist of a 50/50 mixture of SS1-H and water. Apply the mixture to the surface, let dry and then apply Guardtop Seal Coat to the surface.
The Guardtop Application Process After the surface has been properly prepared, Guardtop Seal Coat can be applied. Guardtop can be mixed with water to obtain a desired consistency for the job requirements. The maximum dilution for the product is 20% water to 80% Guardtop. Please note that care should be taken not to over dilute the product. As pavement increases in roughness, the amount of dilution should be decreased. Guardtop should be applied in the following steps. First Coat Prior to applying the first coat, mist the surface with water. Then apply Guardtop using a truck mounted tank, wheeled container, or can. Spread in continuous parallel lines by means of rubber-faced squeegees or by broom. This process can be completed by hand or by machine. All tools should be misted wet before use to avoid product adhesion. After material has been applied to the surface, the Guardtop should be spread by pulling the material toward the operator in a manner that will eliminate all ridges and air pockets. Second Coat After the first coat has completely dried, re-mist the surface with water, check to see that the surface is clean and free of all debris and apply the second coat using the same application process as the first coat. If a third coat is required repeat this step. Note: Guardtop can be applied by spray techniques as well.
Drying Time Guardtop should be allowed to dry a minimum of 24 hours before heavy traffic is permitted. Please note that when asphalt is cold, in shade or the air temperature is below 75 degrees drying time may need to be extended. Guardtop should not be applied in temperatures below 55 degrees. Parking Lot and Traffic Flow Striping Striping for parking or traffic flow should be completed only after the seal coat has thoroughly dried. It is recommended that a high quality water based traffic line paint be used for best results.
