How Many SQ Yds is My Project?
How much pavement surface are you sealing? The project
is to be measured in square yards. To convert from square feet to square
yards, divide the square total feet by nine.
Of the total square yards entered above, what percentage are in areas that
require an optional third coat? For example if the total project is 100,000
sy and the entrances, exits and drive areas represent 30,000 sy of this
number enter 30%.
How Much Do My Products Cost?
If you wish to calculate your estimated job costs,
enter the cost of each component. The amounts entered and the estimated
quantity requirements will be calculated to provide a total job and square
yard cost estimate.
Customize My Mix Design
Next, you must establish a mix design of
the sealcoat to be used. The amount of water, additive and sand are always
based on a per 100 gallons of concentrate sealer measurement. All applications
should have a minimum of 2 coats. A third coat is optional but recommended
for high traffic areas. Each coat can have a different mix design. Although
out of convenience, normally all three coats have the same mix design.
*Above recommendations are based on Gem Seal Coal
Tar sealer. Check with your sealer manufacturer for their recommendations
** Care should be taken to prevent over dilution. High water content is
not recommended for all three coats.
*** Due to evaporation variables, PPP recommends 25 gallons for a winter
mix and 35 gallons for summer mix of our GemSeal coaltar sealer.
Whats My Application Rate?
Next you must establish an Application Rate. Application
Rate for each coat can vary. Generally the first coat is applied at a higher
rate due to "absorption" like affect. The third is generally the lowest.
The Application Rate is the number of gallons of mixed sealer per square
* PCTC (Pavement Coatings Technology Center) recommends a minimum of .12
rate on each application.
What is My Tanks Mix Design? (Optional)
To calculate the amount of each component needed
to fill your tank, enter the amount of available room (in gallons) in your
tank. Because this is based on your mix design you must also enter which
coat this tank is for.
