Build and Transform

Improve the longevity and durability of your roadways, while also reducing costs with CoolSeal. An innovative solution to providing superior protection from the elements, CoolSeal is proven to reduce the urban heat island effect, decrease energy consumption and increase resident comfort and quality of life.

Committed to a Cooler Tomorrow

The Smart Choice for Your City

Choosing cool pavement technology for your city represents a forward-thinking approach to urban planning and sustainability. By significantly reducing surface and ambient temperatures, cool pavement not only enhances the comfort and livability of urban spaces but also contributes to reducing energy consumption and managing urban warming. This smart choice helps in combating climate change impacts, improving air quality, and promoting public health.

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, reducing reliance on air conditioning and increasing energy savings.

Improved Quality of Life

The reduced surface and air temperatures make outdoor spaces more comfortable and safer for pedestrians and pets, encouraging outdoor activities and potentially contributing to healthier lifestyles.

Lower Long-Term Costs

By reflecting sunlight, CoolSeal prevents asphalts from absorbing too much heat, which can cause degradation over time. This extended lifespan means fewer resources  needed for repairs and replacements, conserving materials and reducing the demand for new resources.

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 in the city of Los Angeles. 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.

Is it safe to drive on a “white” road?

CoolSeal has been shown to meet skid safety requirements and dries to light grey matte finish, which does not cause a glare.

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.

Is there a specific climate or season recommended for applying CoolSeal?

CoolSeal is appropriate for any climate, but should be applied during temperate days (60-105 degree Fahrenheit) with no forecasted rain for at least 48 hours for the best result.

How does CoolSeal contribute to environmental sustainability?

CoolSeal is manufactured with recycled materials and doesn’t use fossil fuels like tar coal or bitumen. It’s been proven to lower surface temperatures by an average of 12 degrees Fahrenheit during peak afternoon heat, as compared to traditional products. This cooling effect not only creates more comfortable environments, it can help decrease energy demand, which is associated with lower associated air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. Additionally, when applied correctly, CoolSeal lasts twice as long as conventional sealcoats and increases the longevity of asphalt, thus reducing the cycle of asphalt replacement and waste.
