Fed Spec commercial grade asphalt sealer is the longest lasting sealer available today. Our sealer delivers durability and longevity un-matched by the competition. In independent brush testing, Fed Spec managed to withstand over 4000 cycles which is nearly double that of its nearest competitor. Fed Spec provides better protection & nicer finishes that last longer.
Fed Spec contains black color pigment and a drying agent that create a rich, black matte finish. After application, the asphalt is restored to its original color, covering any un-sightly stains or blemishes.
Fed Spec sealer can fully cure in as little as 4 hours. You may walk on the asphalt surface; also apply marking paint in as little as 1 hour.
Refined Tar Emulsion is your best defense against petroleum based chemical spills (gas, oil, antifreeze). By applying Fed Spec sealer you can prevent future costly repairs caused by leaking vehicles.

I'm getting foam on top of my sealer.
The cause of this is over-agitating the sealer. Only recirculate your sealer for 2-3 minutes max at the beginning of the day and maybe for a minute at the beginning of each job.
My system is not agitating.
You get this when the sealer is too thick and the pump cannot create a prime to circulate the sealer. Dilute it properly to achieve 20 to 30% water dilution.
Use a dipstick to check the level of your sealer at the end of the day and the next time you use your system, just in case of water evaporation (if the levels are different, add enough water to regain the previous sealer level).
Another possible reason could involve the system's ball valve. On the output part of the pump, there's a ball valve that allows you to redirect the sealer to the top of the tank or to the spray gun. If that ball valve is constantly or permanently broken to the spray gun, you wouldn't get recirculation.
Can coal tar sealer be applied to concrete?
It can, but please note that when the sealer starts to oxidize and wear the color will change to a beige/grey, which is not very attractive. But it will adhere.
Can I use your sealer to seal the exterior walls of my basement to keep water out?
Sure; it would work. It is a sealant designed to seal out water. Its original design was actually for undercoating trains in northern climates and then it was determined that it would work well for asphalt too.
Is this a water clean up product?
While the sealer is wet, you can use water to clean it. As soon as the sealer dries, you'll need to use either mineral spirits or sand it off. Our Wand Wizard is a great to prevent overspray and lessen the clean up required after sealcoating.
After applying crackfill, how soon can you seal coat?
Whether you used liquid cold-pour crack filler or rubberized hot-pour crack filler, it is best to let the product dry completely before applying sealer. Depending on ambient and surface temperatures, the actual drying time of the crack fill can vary. We usually recommend allowing crack fill to dry for 24 to 48 hours before applying sealer.
Is the product oil or water based
Coal tar sealer’s main ingredient is just that, coal tar. Coal tar is a thick, black liquid that is a byproduct of the distillation of bituminous coal (usually in the electricity production industry). Coal tar is mixed with additional minerals dependent upon the manufacturer. Additionally, all coal tar sealers must be mixed with water.
Can the seal be painted over? If so how long after placement?
Yes, Sealcoat can be painted (just think about the painted parking stalls in a parking lot!!). The paint should be a high-quality latex (water-based) paint. Less expensive paints may exhibit bleed through or discoloration of the paint. Any colors can be utilized. It is best to wait a few days after the Sealcoat is applied before painting.
