TUF-COTE™ Asphalt Seal is an emulsion mixture of copolymers and fibrous non-carcinogenic select minerals and fillers - over 5 pounds per gallon. It is one of the heaviest sealcoat products manufactured.
TUF-COTE™'S higher latex content provides the key to many of it's superior qualities. More latex (vinyl acetate acrylic copolymer) helps keep in suspension the materials that we've blended together in the plant and allows for a more flexible product.
TUF-COTE™ has properties that allow it to bond naturally to asphalt and because it shrinks and expands at the same rate as asphalt, it retains its bond through extremes in temperature.
Custom blends of TUF-COTE™ can be prepared if a heavier application is required or other specific conditions need to be considered.
