Gaining the Seal of Approval

By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: ExteriorFlooring

SealMaster Hawaii is as local as they come. The company first opened its doors in 2003, but its owners — the Moody family — have been in the islands for four generations.

Walker-Moody Pavement Products & Equipment, dba SealMaster Hawaii, manufactures its products locally for Hawaii residents. The company uses local materials and local labor to put its products on the shelf. SealMaster Hawaii is the asphalt professional, backed by its parent company with more than 40 years experience, and it has one of the most recognizable names in pavement maintenance throughout the world.

Certified Hawaii Product

SealMaster Hawaii’s signature product is MasterSeal Ready-to-Use. It’s a primed asphalt-emulsion pavement sealer fortified with silica sand for added wearability and slip resistance. This product, as well as other company products, is certified by the state Procurement Office and has Hawaii Product Preference. It is made in Hawaii from local materials, and is especially useful on Hawaii’s roads.

Why Sealcoat?

The heart of an effective pavement maintenance program is periodic seal-coating with an asphalt based emulsion pavement sealer. Left untreated, asphalt pavement will deteriorate rapidly.

It is made up of asphalt binder and rock. Almost immediately after paving, the asphalt binder combines with oxygen and becomes brittle or oxidized, leading to cracking and weathering soon after installation. Moisture penetrates the asphalt causing further damage and deterioration to the pavement.

Sealcoating (with MasterSeal Ready-to-Use) protects against oxidation. An unsealed pavement allows water to penetrate into and through the pavement structure leading to base erosion, and ultimately pavement failure. Sealcoating provides a protective barrier to stop water penetration. Also if left unsealed, oil and gasoline will soften and deteriorate the exposed asphalt binder. Sealcoating provides a protective barrier that resists attack from oil and gasoline.
