Innovate and Impact

CoolSeal is designed not only to enhance the aesthetic and functional quality of pavements but also to align with rigorous environmental standards. By choosing CoolSeal, you're not just selecting a pavement solution; you're making an investment in your property that will pay off in multiple ways for years to come.


A Cooler Solution for Urban Living

CoolSeal's innovative asphalt sealcoat is designed tackle the challenge of excessive urban heat head-on; we're not just changing landscapes—we're enhancing the quality of life for communities, campuses, venues and complexes everywhere.

Temperature Reduction

CoolSeal’s advanced formula reflects more sunlight and absorbs less heat than traditional materials, significantly lowering surface temperatures and creating a more comfortable outdoor environment—ultimately creating more value for your property.

Energy Savings

By reducing the heat absorbed and re-radiated by pavement, cool pavements can decrease the ambient temperature around buildings. This can lead to lower energy costs due to reduced demand for air conditioning, especially during peak summer months.

Environmentally Friendly

CoolSeal proudly contributes to sustainability goals by mitigating heat island effects, improving air quality, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. CoolSeal products meet LEED and EPA requirements of 33% reflectivity and are eligible for up to three LEED points.  

Put to the Test

Proven to Outperform

Among many other city initiatives currently in progress, CoolSeal has most notably been put to the test by the City of Phoenix, Arizona, as part of their Cool Pavement Pilot Program and Los Angeles’ Cool Roadways Partnership. The results—CoolSeal is proving to be the best choice, and only fully-green choice, for cities seeking heat relief, energy savings and innovative, long-term solutions.

Find answers to commonly asked questions about CoolSeal's innovative asphalt sealcoat.

Does cool pavement look different than traditional asphalt?

Yes, the cool pavement coating is a lighter grayish concrete color. When applied, the material dries to a matte finish. Despite being lighter in color, cool pavement does not result in glare. It also meets or exceeds skid-safety requirements.

What are the benefits of using CoolSeal by GuardTop?

CoolSeal is a high-performance, water-based, asphalt emulsion sealcoat designed to achieve lower surface temperatures through its lighter color and reflectivity. CoolSeal meets Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and LEED requirements of 33 percent reflectivity and can last longer than conventional sealcoats.

How effective is CoolSeal in reducing heat in urban areas?

CoolSeal reflects 30% more sunlight and lowers surface temperatures by 10-16℉, compared to uncoated asphalt. It can lower surface temperatures by up to 20℉ as compared to black-coat asphalt. It also lowers subsurface temperatures by nearly 5℉, resulting in long-lasting surfaces that reduce maintenance needs and save on costs.

Where can CoolSeal be applied?

CoolSeal is applied to asphalt, the same way conventional black sealcoats are applied. It can be used to coat parking lots, driveways, roadways, residential areas, schools, playgrounds, bike paths, and other community areas.

Is CoolSeal appropriate for places with harsh winters?

Once applied and fully cured, CoolSeal is effective in all environments and weather conditions. Its physical performance, solar reflectivity, and durability can stand up to freeze-thaw cycles, as well as snow plows, salt, and snow melt.

How long does CoolSeal last and how does it compare to conventional sealcoats?

Our special blend is designed to be resistant to cracking and wear and tear. Properly applied, a two-coat application of CoolSeal can last twice as long as conventional sealcoat and require less maintenance.

How can CoolSeal help with long-term cost savings?

Because CoolSeal lasts longer and provides stellar protection for asphalt, property owners and communities can make the most of their asphalt investment and save money over time with fewer repairs and longer cycles between asphalt replacement.

What are the safety benefits of CoolSeal?

Lower surface temperatures can benefit children and animals who are outside on warm days, as well as help vulnerable populations without air conditioning stay cooler on hot summer days. In addition, our sealcoat dries to a light gray matte finish, reducing glare and increasing visibility at night. Finally, asphalt that is kept in good repair by a strong sealcoat like CoolSeal can reduce accidents.

Does CoolSeal count toward LEED points?

CoolSeal meets LEED and EPA requirements of 33% reflectivity. All CoolSeal projects are eligible for up to 3 LEED points toward the 40-80 points needed for various levels of LEED certification.
