Some contractors may attempt to steer you towards one solution over the other, but there are important factors to consider for asphalt slurry compared to asphalt sealcoating.
Differences Between a Slurry and a Sealcoat
The main difference between a slurry and a sealcoat is that a slurry is thicker than a sealcoat. A slurry uses larger aggregates in its mix while seal coats contain smaller, or in some cases; no aggregates, in its mix.
When To Use a Slurry Instead of a Sealcoat?
While both slurry and a sealcoat protect your asphalt, they are best used in different situations.
A slurry is best for heavier traveled roadways and streets where vehicles travel at higher speeds. Since slurry uses larger aggregates, it provides a tougher surface that can withstand heavier and more constant traffic loads.
A sealcoat is best used in low traffic, low speed areas, such as parking lots and driveways. You’ll generally have smaller, lighter vehicles traveling/parking on the asphalt.
Frequently Asked Questions For Asphalt Slurry Service
How long does slurry last compared to a sealcoat?
The longevity of a slurry seal and sealcoat depends on traffic loading and weather. In general terms, you should reapply slurry every 6-9 years. You should reapply a sealcoat every 3-6 years.
How long does a slurry take to cure compared to a sealcoat?
In ideal conditions, a slurry will take 6-10 hours to cure while a sealcoat will take 16-24 hours to cure.
Which costs more, a slurry seal or a sealcoat?
A slurry seal is about twice as costly as a sealcoat. One reason why slurry is more expensive than a sealcoat is that the slurry is mixed on site and spread in a large machine. On the other hand, a sealcoat can be applied using a spray or squeegee.
Which makes your asphalt look “nicer,” a slurry or sealcoat?
This can go either way. Both give your asphalt a rich, black color, as if the asphalt were brand new.
But a sealcoat provides a smoother surface than a slurry because it contains smaller (or has no) aggregates. If your pavement has unraveled and is rough, then a slurry may help in filling in surface voids (because it contains larger aggregates) and correct rough spots on the pavement.
