  • Provides an 'as new' appearance
  • Covers old line markings and repairs
  • Avoids disruptive and costly re-surfacing
  • Easy to apply
  • Good hiding power
  • Quick drying

Preparation

Surfaces should be dry and free of any loose material. Moss etc. should be removed by scraping and/or jet washing and the surface left to dry thoroughly.

Application

Stir Rust-Oleum 5478 Asphalt Restorer thoroughly before use. The product should be applied generously but evenly in one coat using a roller or brush. Small pits and fissures can be filled with a stiff mortar consisting of dry sand mixed with the product. Pits and fissures should be primed with the product before trowelling in the mortar. Clean tools with white spirit or thinner. Do not apply during rainfall. Protect from rain for at least 30 minutes after application.

Drying Times At 20°C/RH 50%

  • Touch dry: 30 minutes
  • Dry to recoat: 2 - 5 hours
  • Fully cured: 2 - 5 hours. Rain will delay curing by trapping solvents within the coating

Theoretical Consumption

5 - 10 m² per 5 litres, depending on the surface

Practical Consumption 

Practical coverage depends on many factors such as porosity and roughness of the substrate, size of the leakage and material losses during application.

Notes

Rust-Oleum 5478 Asphalt Restorer is intended as a surface coating. It is not designed to strengthen or repair weak or damaged surfaces. This product is designed for use on bitumen based surfaces. It could soften surfaces which contain coal tar. If in doubt, apply a test area and check after 24 hours that no softening has occurred.

Please contact Rawlins Paints' Technical Support Team on 0113 2455450 for more information.

questions neil on 07/09/2019
Question: 

can brushies be cleaned out with water? is it self leveling?,and when u say matt does it have just a very slight sheen ? thx

Answer: 

Rust-Oleum 5478 Asphalt Restorer is a solvent based coating so brushes cannot be cleaned with water. It contains fillers and special flow additives, the product should be applied generously but evenly in one coat using a roller or brush. Small pits and fissures can be filled with a stiff mortar consisting of dry sand mixed with the product. Pits and fissures should be primed with the product before trowelling in the mortar. The product is classed as a matt finish.

questions matt dunn on 16/07/2019
Question: 

Will this product leave the tarmac slippery when wet

Answer: 

It has no specific anti-slip properties or test data on this but it is a matt finish and if applied properly shouldn't increase the risk of slipping on the surface.

questions andrew finch -dent on 17/03/2019
Question:

Answer: 

The newly laid tarmac would need to cure first.

questions Alan Harding on 18/09/2018
Question: 

Approximately what area will a 5l tin cover?

Answer: 

5 - 10m² per 5 litre, depending on the surface.

questions Gwyn Matthews  on 16/08/2018
Question: 

Hi My messy builders have left ivory tyrolean on the tarmac pavement Will this product paint over and disguise this?

Answer: 

Yes, we think this should be OK. First be sure to thoroughly wash and clean the area (preferably by pressure washer) to remove as much of the staining as possible. Then ensure any remnants are completely dry and cured and unable to be removed. Test a small area first to ensure no adverse reactions, if OK apply 1-2 coats as required.

questions jvjones on 22/07/2018
Question:

questions Dave parkes on 28/05/2017
Question: 

I'm trying to get rid of diesel spillage stains from my drive due to a fuel tank breakage would your ash felt restorer do this job? Thanks for your help.

Answer: 

Contamination such as fuel spillages, oils, greases, etc. must be completely removed from surfaces needing to be painted with Rust-Oleum 5478 Asphalt Restorer. If this can be achieved then it should hide any visible discolouration, marks etc. left on the driveway surface to provide a uniform, solid coloured finish. We would however recommend a test area be carried out over the affected areas to ensure full obliteration can be achieved and no reaction occurs with the areas in question due to insufficient cleaning.
