Slurry Seal Vs Seal Coat

Slurry seal vs seal coat—which of these sealing options is right for your road paving, asphalt driveways, parking lots or playgrounds? While the terms are often used interchangeably because both protect and extend the life of your asphalt surfaces, the two applications are different. It is important to identify and understand these differences before making a choice. Selecting the right paving solution is key to optimizing surface safety and lifespan as well as reducing your maintenance costs.

Slurry Seal Vs Seal Coat – How are They Different?
  • Slurry Seal
  • Seal Coat
  • A thick, cold mix paving treatment that contains aggregates, asphalt emulsion, water and additives
  •  An emulsion containing liquid asphalt, mineral fillers and other anti-oxidation additives
  •  A high-performance resurfacing treatment  that provides an additional wear surface
  • Provides a layer of protection against moisture and UV damage as well as minimizes raveling
  •  Has a rough texture
  • Gives a smooth finish and helps to even out rough surfaces
  • Best for roadways and streets with heavier traffic as well as airport tarmacs
  • Ideal for low traffic areas including parking lots and driveways
  • Lasts for 8 to 10 years
  • Lasts for 3 to 5 years
  •  Typically 8 to 10 hours to cure but depends on mix and application
  • Typically cures within 2 to 4 hours, though dependent on mix and application
  • Costs more than a seal coat as it requires specialized self-mixing equipment and applicator
  • Less expensive and can be easily sprayed on or applied using a squeegee
