As the globe gets warmer so do our cities and sadly with that comes an increase of heat related health issues. Regular asphalt sealers absorb heat made by the sun which can lead to roads reaching ridiculous temperatures of over 160 F (70 C) and creating an extremely warm environment for those who are out and about.

CoolSeal, on the other hand, is an asphalt coating made from recyclable materials that reflects the sunlight and the heat and lowers surface temperatures by up to 30 degrees Fahrenheit. In large urban areas with large stretches of concrete CoolSeal is being tested to see if it can make a difference by keeping roads cooler and in return communities. 

CoolSeal reflects the heat without causing a glare and dries to be a light grey finish, much lighter than the dark grey of usual concrete.  It is applied on top of regular asphalt like normal seal coats to protect and maintain the quality of the roads. It also meets the requirements of the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design).

This is perfect solution for playgrounds, parks, parking lots, driveways and residential areas, schools, and bike paths, practically anywhere people spend time outdoors. CoolSeal is also perfect for dog owners, whose puppy’s little paws won’t burn on the hot summer asphalt anymore.

On top of all this, CoolSeal is energy saving as it increases the nighttime visibility of drivers, pedestrians, and bikers which reduces the costs of street lighting. An all-round innovative winner in our book
