GuardTop’s commitment to sustainability has guided the development of CoolSeal by GuardTop®. Designed for lightly trafficked areas, the high-performance, water-based, asphalt emulsion sealcoat achieves lower surface temperatures through its light grey color and increased reflectivity. The product is perfect for schools, playgrounds, bike paths, and LEED eligible building projects. Similar to cool roofs, cool pavements also reflect the sun’s energy to help reduce temperatures inside and outside buildings. The benefits of cool pavements extend beyond just cooling the local ambient air. More reflective parking lots allow building owners and cities to save on energy needed to illuminate streets and parking lots. CoolSeal meets LEED and EPA requirements of 33 percent reflectivity and is a long-lasting product that will seal, protect and beautify pavements for years to come. The EPA states that cool pavements, such as CoolSeal, can help mitigate heat islands.
