Sealcoat Group Continues Industry Development

This article discusses the activities of the Asphalt Sealcoat Manufacturers Association (ASMA) in 2005 and its plans for 2006. One of ASMA's major goals is to educate the industry, primarily the property manager end users of the material, regarding why and how to maintain asphalt pavements. The association recently released a troubleshooting brochure that contains example photos and explanations of a number of sealcoating-related concerns. Another major accomplishment was the acceptance by the California Department of Transportation of ASMA's sealcoating specification for some asphalt pavements. In 2006, ASMA plans to hold four regional pavement maintenance workshops for property owners as well as publish articles in property management trade magazines. The association is also hoping to increase its contractor membership.
