How does your sealer compare to INTEGRA-SEAL asphalt based sealer?
Recent field trials throughout the U.S. are recommending non-coal tar-based sealers as the preferred choice for asphalt applications. Several agencies already have regulations in-place that ban the use of coal tar products because coal tar-based sealers may pollute our air and ground water. Coal tar sealers contain PAHs (Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons, which are Carcinogenic). The EPA believes it’s possible that coal tar sealers containing PAHs may run-off into water sewage systems as they deteriorate and can thus become a cause of ground water pollution. Because of this concern, the EPA is encouraging states to ban coal tar sealers. Further studies indicate that dust from these sealers can become airborne and pollute the surrounding areas with PAHs. PAHs are a threat to the environment. Available in 5 Gal pail, 55 Gal Drum, 275 Gal Tote and 330 Gal Tote.
