PROTECTION
STAR-SEAL® is a heavy-duty refined tar sealer that is specifically designed to protect bituminous pavements. Composed of high temperature refined tar pitch, select mineral fillers and surfactants, STAR-SEAL® forms a tough, durable and flexible coating that protects asphalt pavements from the damaging elements of weather, water, salts, gas and other petro-chemicals.

APPEARANCE
The dark charcoal black color of STAR-SEAL® improves the appearance of new and old asphalt pavements. Unprotected asphalt surfaces gradually lose their rich black color due to oxidation and weathering. STAR-SEAL® preserves the smoothness and resilience of asphalt surfaces and helps hide rough spots, small cracks, patches and surface depressions. Pavements coated with STAR-SEAL® look cleaner because rainfall washes dirt and debris easily from the smooth, non-porous surface. Traffic lines become more visible.

ECONOMY
STAR-SEAL® substantially reduces maintenance costs and at the same time, extends the life of asphalt pavements by as much as 300%. The cost of STAR-SEAL® is truly a minor expense when compared to the cost of pavement replacement. STAR-SEAL® also greatly extends the life of existing sound pavements.

RESISTS FUEL PENETRATION
Resists gas, oil, salt and chemical penetration. Asphalt is a petroleum derivative, soluble in distillates such as gas, jet fuel and oil drippings. STAR-SEAL® prevents damage from distillates and chemicals.

PREVENTS WATER PENETRATION
The intrusion of moisture into asphalt pavement structure accelerates its deterioration and is strongly related to pavement distress. The sealing of well-cured asphalt with STAR-SEAL® prevents the seepage of moisture from snow and rain, thus preventing damage from freeze-thaw cycles.

STOPS OXIDATION
Actinic rays in sunlight can oxidize the asphalt oils in pavement, causing brittleness and a resulting loss of aggregates which may rob up to 50% of the original asphalt thickness in just five years. A pavement sealcoated with STAR-SEAL® will resist oxidative degradation and retain its value.

REDUCES COSTS & INCREASES VALUE
The intrusion of moisture into asphalt pavement structure accelerates its deterioration and is strongly related to pavement distress. The sealing of well-cured asphalt with STAR-SEAL® prevents the seepage of moisture from snow and rain, thus preventing damage from freeze-thaw cycles.

APPLICATION
STAR-SEAL® must be applied to structurally sound pavements by experienced applicators.Asphalt pavement should be protected by two coats of STAR-SEAL®, however, the quantities and coverage rates must conform to manufacturer’s detailed specifications. Average coverage rates are 0.18 to .20 undiluted gallons per square yard.STAR MACRO-FLEX®, latex additive and silica sand may be added for increased traction and durability.

SPECIFICATIONS AND STANDARDS
STAR-SEAL® meets or exceeds...Federal Government Specification RP-355e (GSA-FSS), June 1987.U.S. Air Force and F.A.A. specifications State Specifications using refined tar emulsions for government projects and bridge decks. American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) D-3320-74T and D-490, COKE oven tar specification.

Star Rust Arrest

STAR® RUST ARREST™ is a specialty coating that is used for asphalt surfaces riddled with rust spots and streaks. It hides and significantly retards the continued rusting of “pyrites” (iron bearing aggregate) in the pavement. Without the use of STAR® RUST ARREST™ rust spots erupt even through sealcoated surfaces. These eruptions eventually allow salt and moisture to penetrate into the asphalt surface causing damage to the pavement, which manifest as cracks, and pot holes. STAR® RUST ARREST™ dries to a black satin finish that will not only protect but also beautify the pavement. STAR® RUST ARREST™ is a pavement maintenance product that will act as an important part of your regular pavement maintenance schedule providing two distinct benefits - protection of the asphalt surface and prohibition of the staining and damaging rust deposits in iron contaminated asphalt surfaces.

* Will prevent rust spotting and improve surface appearance.

* Is easy to use. Use straight from the container with conventional tools.

* Dries in 30 minutes, Cures in as few as 2 to 4 hours.

* Use as a black coating by itself or as part of a system and apply traditional sealcoating after treating the rust spots.

* Use as an affective primer over striping to black out existing traffic controls and lot lines.

* Dries to rich black satin finish.

* Safe to store and easy water clean up.

 

STAR® RUST ARREST™ is recommended on all asphalt surfaces with rust spotting problems; parking lots, airports, gas stations, home driveways, schools, malls, etc.
