STAR-SEAL SUPREME® is a premium grade asphalt pavement sealer for those discriminating jobs that demand outstanding performance & appearance year after year.
STAR-SEAL SUPREME® has an extraordinary degree of toughness & water repellency not accomplished thus far by any competitive sealer in the industry. The hot blending of catalyzed
rubber & select polymers with the refined coal tar in STAR-SEAL SUPREME® greatly enhances its toughness, flexibility at all temperatures & resistance to gasoline, oil, & chemicals.
The water repellency of the cured STAR-SEAL SUPREME® coating systems is the result of a very special blend of surface active agents which change the surface physical chemistry of the clays & make them hydrophobic.

STAR-SEAL SUPREME® must be applied on structurally sound
pavement by professional applicators.
Coverage rates - 0.18 to 0.20 gal/sq. yard 2-coat application.
Coverage rates may vary depending upon the porosity
& texture of the pavement surface.
Aggregates Addition - Clean silica sand with an average grain
fineness between 50 - 70 shall be added for increased traction.
Method - Mechanical or spray applicators, brush or squeegee
1st coat: STAR-SEAL SUPREME® with 4-5 Ibs. of Sand per gallon.
Coverage rate: 0. 10 - 0. 12 gall*/square yard.
2nd coat: Composition same as for 1st coat.
Coverage rate: 0.09 - 0.11 gall/square yard.
Will vary according to temperature & relative humidity at the time of
application. Under ideal drying conditions - 80 deg. F & 50% humidity.
*8-12 Hours between successive coats.
* 24 hours after the application of the last coat prior to opening to traffic.
Surface & air temperature should be a min. 50 degrees F. & rising.
Do not apply on rainy, foggy, & extremely humid days,
or when rain is in the forecast within 24 hours.
