To restore and rejuvenate blacktop driveways, car parks and roads, one would typically use a high quality and heavy duty sealer to offer long-term abrasion protection and prevent any further cracks and degradation of the surface material. Products used to improve the aesthetics and durability of roads and driveways are known by several different names, and Rawlins Paints receive enquiries daily about tarmac paints, asphalt paints and driveway paints – which are essentially one and the same thing. For heavy duty, concrete paints, we have a more specialised section offering the leading heavy vehicular traffic paints and coatings.
The main feature many customers look for is the range of colours available and if the product offers extra chemical and weatherproofing resistance. The full range of “road paints” at Rawlins Paints each come with detailed data-sheets, offering technical information, application advice (such as whether the product can be applied to wet or damp tarmac surfaces) and suitable methods (brush, roller or spray), as well as the best ways to maintain the tarmac/asphalt surface. If in doubt, however, give Rawlins Paints’ technical support team a call.
Asphalt and tarmac surfaces are prone to extreme weathering and colour fading from consistent UV exposure, and seasonal elements and temperature cycles. Whilst resins, paints and sealers available here do offer a one-coat long-term protection system, a routine maintenance audit is recommended to ensure that excessive water can easily be drained away, and that any oil or fuel spills are cleaned up as soon as possible – for example, spots where cars and vehicles regularly park. High quality and heavy duty tarmac paints do offer chemical resistance against such fuels, vehicle coolants and cleaning liquids, but any existing damage to the surface will need fixing first before successful and longstanding application of a rejuvenating top-coat.
