Question: 

Hi would this go soft when the weather is hot? I have heard of similar products doing this . Thanks

Answer: 

Asphalt can soften with increases in temperature. Rust-Oleum 5478 Asphalt Restorer is intended as a surface coating. Depending on the substrate it could soften surfaces which contain coal tar.

 We would recommend to apply a test area and check after 24 hours that no softening has occurred.

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.

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.

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.

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.
