Sealcoating is vital to maintain your asphalt parking lot. At Yellowstone Pavement Solutions we specialize in all things asphalt maintenance. This includes crack repair, sealcoating, line striping and pot hole repair. We operate throughout Montana including; Bozeman, Belgrade, Billings, Three Forks, Ennis, Helena, Butte and Missoula.

We are currently using a product called PitchBlack that is purchased through Sealcoat Distributing based in Blackfoot, Idaho. PitchBlack is an environmentally friendly asphalt emulsion that contains no harmful solvents or petroleum distillates. This product was chosen based on its environmental friendliness – something that is not always typical with emulsions (i.e. coal tars)-, the longevity of the product when placed and the chemical make up of PitchBlack. 

Directly From the Manufacturer:

Pitch Black ® asphalt pavement sealer is a premium, proprietary polymer reinforced, high-grade, custom rubberized premixed asphalt emulsion sealcoat blended with carefully selected minerals, fillers, and fibers, formulated specifically to produce a superior asphalt maintenance product. Each component was selected for its unique characteristics, which when combined creates a highly adhesive, extremely flexible seal coat with the deepest and longest lasting black color, firmest body, and greatest durability. In addition, it is free from asbestos fibers or any other carcinogenic materials and is non-flammable. The co-efficient of expansion and contraction of this asphalt emulsion sealer is identical to that of asphaltic concrete pavements and has a natural affinity for bonding to them. Pitch Black® asphalt emulsion pavement sealer is recommended for repairs and maintenance, and the protection of existing asphalt concrete pavements such as: low-volume city streets, parking lots, highway shoulders, airport taxi-ways, tarmacs, aprons, bike paths, walkways, tennis courts, schools and playgrounds, and any other asphalt pavement surfaces. 

Pitch Black ® asphalt pavement sealer weatherproofs porous asphalt surfaces, prohibits penetration of water and oil, and blocks harmful ultraviolet rays by leaving a tough protective coating on asphalt pavement surfaces. In addition, Pitch Black® asphalt pavement sealer fills small voids, and seals in spalling particles, helping to provide a smoother surface and allow better run-off of water. The producers of the Pitch Black® formula have gone beyond the usual steps in specifying what types and percentages of crude oils must be used in the asphalt emulsification process. 

The asphalt emulsion used in Pitch Black® is made by adding specific, custom emulsifiers in a process that produces a product that readily accepts minerals, fillers, and additives in seal coat manufacturing that is so necessary to the final quality of the seal coat product. This results in a superior asphalt seal coat with special properties giving it a hard, smooth and longer lasting surface. 

With over 30 years of experience in manufacturing asphalt emulsion based sealcoat products, and over 70 years in the asphalt industry, Pitch Black® is the leader in asphalt maintenance products.

Our Take on Emulsions

Our main focus is to provide our customers with the highest quality asphalt emulsion on the market. At the moment, through our independent research, we believe this product to be PitchBlack. However, we are always looking forward and researching new products in the industry.
