Tuffseal is a Portland-based Polymer Micro-Overlay (PMO) which is primarily used as a pavement preservation material. As a polymer-modified Portland cement composition, this durable material creates an exceptional bond to asphalt, concrete and metal. Tuffseal preserves asphaltic pavement by shielding it from the deteriorating effects of the environment, chemicals, fuels and traffic. It also restores spalled and damaged concrete pavement to an attractive, smooth running course. Tuffseal and Tuffseal-related products can be customized to integrate color in the material and provide high friction numbers, so they are also valuable where safety and esthetics are a factor. This flexible, clean, quiet riding, green pavement sealant is beginning to revolutionize the maintenance industry because of its ability to dramatically extend the life-cycle of pavement structures.
100% Environmentally Safe
Tuffseal eliminates the need for toxic, petroleum-based pavement preservation products, contains no polycylic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH’s) and, in fact, can be used to cap existing products, such as coal tar sealer, preventing toxic substances from running off and ending up in our rivers, ponds and water sources.
Asphalt's two biggest enemies are degradation from U.V. rays and rainwater. Tuffseal is unaffected by UV, water, ice, oxidation, automotive fluids, aircraft fluids, oil, diesel and gasoline. Through locking in the flexibility in the existing pavement and sealing it from the top-down, the life-cycle of your asphalt will be extended.
Tuffseal is a solar reflective gray material that stays between 10-20 degrees Fahrenheit cooler than fresh asphalt and asphalt sealed through conventional means. Our solar reflective gray with a Solar Reflective Index of 38 reduces surface temperature, thus helping to prevent rutting and reducing the urban heat island effect.
At 1/16 to 1/8 of an inch thickness, Tuffseal takes care of the problem and expense of milling out existing overlays as well as providing a lighter option that will have only a minimal effect on the weight load for repairing bridges and overpasses. Rising oil prices position Tuffseal around half the price of a 1 ½” asphalt overlay.
In warm temperatures, Tuffseal can cure for traffic in thirty minutes to an hour.
•Provides a long-lasting friction and wearing course that can restore old pavements to new friction standards
•Provides a lighter colored surface for better nighttime visibility
•Provides cost-effective method for filling existing ruts and helping prevent future rutting, which minimizes hydroplaning
•Provides environmentally green option that will not harm the environment or human or animal life
Upscales the Look of Your Pavement
With our unique, patent-pending spray system, Tuffseal will upscale the look of asphalt, giving it a beautiful, seamless finish. Your asphalt will have the appearance and characteristics of concrete. Since Tuffseal is applied as a micro-overlay, it also prevents safety and esthetic issues that are brought on when pavement is overlaid with asphalt. The overlaid surface becomes 1½” - 2” higher than the area surrounding it. Unsightly, old, and spalling concrete can be restored to an even, smooth surface at a fraction of the cost of tearing out and replacing the entire section.
