Preparation guidelines for Tarmaseal™ tarmac restorer
Before any application of the tarmac restorer, ensure the surface
is thoroughly cleaned and loose stones are swept away.
Clean the tarmac by power/jet washing on reduced pressure to avoid
damage to the surface.
Carry out any tarmac repairs that may be required use crack repair compound for holes and cracks. Cold lay repair for larger pot holes.
If algae or moss is present, a pre-treatment with moss remover from Smartseal is advised.
Apply product to a clean, dry tarmac surface with temperatures above 10 degrees with no rain is forecast for at least 3 hours after the application of the tarmac restorer has finished.
For best results it is advisable to use a long handled roller kit with a medium pile head. A soft broom or tarmac paint brush can be used for borders or hard to get to areas, but generally a roller kit is best.
Dependent on condition two coats of tarmac restorer are recommended. Average coverage ratios are 40-60sq.* metres per 20 litre drum (60 sq. metres if the tarmac is in good condition but has lost colour and faded over time. 40 sq. metres for poorer quality tarmac surfaces).
Prior to commencing application thoroughly stir the tarmac restorer. This will ensure the pigment and the slip enhancing additive within the product are mixed thoroughly and not settled at the bottom of the container. This mixing can be carried out with anything from a stiff stick, broom handle, or a mixing paddle connected to an electric drill.
Areas adjacent to neighbours driveways, flower beds or lawns should be masked off with tape, or planks of wood to avoid unwanted coverage.
After application keep vehicles and foot traffic of the tarmac until completely dry.
