Here at Aegis Asphalt, we can sealcoat your parking lot more efficiently than ever before with our Seal Master SP 575 Dual Spray/Squeegee Sealcoat Machine the “titan” of sealcoating machines.
Spraying is the most popular method because it is quicker to apply than using a squeegee. Spraying provides a more uniform and smooth-looking finish. To apply the spray sealcoat, we here at Aegis use a trailer or skid-mounted spray system and a hand wand or distributer bar. A distributor bar empties the machine faster than a hand wand for increased efficiency.
With the spray method, we apply an initial coat and follow it with a second coat to cover any missed spots. The second coat, which needs to be applied one to two hours after the first, ensures the prevention of water entering the pavement surface.
Squeegee application is the preferred choice for permeable and rough surfaces. Here at Aegis we will use a ride-on machine with a squeegee tool to apply sealant into the crevices of the pavement. While the squeegee method needs more attention for an even spread of the sealcoat, it achieves stronger bonds on irregular surfaces.
The Dual Application Question?
Dual application is our choice, but also the most expensive. Aegis Asphalt uses a Seal Master SP 575 Dual Spray/Squeegee Sealcoat Machine for your sealcoating needs. The dual application allows for versatility in all surface types. This allows for maximizing the sealcoat quality on a number of surfaces. When we use this method, we sealcoat with the squeegee technique first then the spray technique.
The dual applicator method allows us to deliver results that last about 40 percent longer than a spray or squeegee application.
