The Pitch Black® Asphalt Emulsion formula was engineered and developed in the early 1980s. The owners of the formula have been in the asphalt rehabilitation and repair industry for three generations. With hundreds of millions of square feet of pavement being sealed with Pitch Black® every year, it’s no wonder it’s one of the most sought after, respected and well-protected formulas in the industry today. Pitch Black® can be applied on any asphalt surface including driveways, parking lots, shopping centers, malls, school playgrounds, airports, etc. It’s asbestos-free, contains no carcinogenic materials and is non-flammable. Pitch Black® is environmentally friendly and is the perfect solution to any residential, commercial or industrial asphalt project.
