Quality Asphalt Content

The environment is essential to all people in the world. No matter who you are, the environment is important. This is why Quality Asphalt has decided to do our part and move in a more environmentally friendly direction.

The most common type of asphalt sealer used is Coal Tar. Although it may be cost effective, and widely used, it is not good for the environment nor for the people using it. The downfalls of Coal Tar are:

  • Can burn someone's skin
  • Considered toxic by a growing number of states
  • To remove, one may have to use solvent and once removed a yellow stain maybe left behind
  • Cannot use oil based paint ( could turn stripes yellow)
  • More costly in the long run
  • restrictions apply to using this

Quality Asphalt cares about the future of our families and want to leave the world better than we found it.

For this reason, we have moved to Pitch Black sealer, which means we are 100% Coal Tar free. Pitch Black is the better, higher quality alternative. The benefits of Pitch Black are:

  • No hazardous materials are used
  • All you need to clean it up is water
  • Dries within one day
  • Can use water or oil based paint
  • Ease of application
  • Stays black longer
  • It's asbestos-free, contains no carcinogenic materials and is non-flammable


It is everyone's responsibility to take care of our Earth. This transition will move mountains for the Charlotte, MI community as well as the surrounding areas that we service. We want to blaze the path for our employees and community for a better environment.
