javascript:; Top 12 Info Sources About Coal Tar Sealant Pollution | Coal Tar Free America

People frequently ask me about brochures and information about coal tar sealants.  With any emerging field of understanding, information changes and makes some materials outdated or obsolete.

Also, there really isn't a one-size fits all kind of educational piece.  Thankfully there are a growing number of resources for all interest levels.  So here are some of the best that I know of.  If you know others, feel free to add them at the bottom of this list as a comment.

1. Best General Information Flier:
2. Best, Most Up-to-Date Summary Article:
3. Best General Information Piece (6 pages):
4. Best (and maybe only) Infographic about Coal Tar Sealants:

I would have to disagree with the best web site. The gilsonite site people, I have seen companies cut that products with diesel fuel, seen it still tracking through homes for days after applied. Gilsonite tracks, all sealcoat products track from the hard wheels of shopping carts. I wouldn't even classify that as a sealer, more a attempt to rejuvenate dry asphalt to an extent, many gypsies have used that product over the years.

interesting these tattoos have coal tar in them and destroying peoples skin. Didn't the PCTC say coal tar has no know health issues. coal tar is not just in sealcoat and is causing permanent damage

We are proud to say that 2013 is our 40th season applying Gilsonite based GSB products. Since our humble beginning in 1973 we have applied nearly 10 million gallons on nearly 750 million square feet of pavement all over this great nation. Our satisfied customers like the FAA, DoD, DOT's, County Highway Departments, Cities, and hundreds of commercial, industrial and shopping center clients have learned that not only does GSB NOT TRACK, it preserves and extends the life of asphalt pavements better than every other process (according to United States Navy Research 2011). Log on and see for yourself:

And for the record, Gilsonite is a natural asphalt cement. Proven to be one of the best, most durable, high quality long lasting binder materials available. Even better than the binder used to make pavements. It always is amusing to hear novice advice whose comments are based not on fact but on ignorance or worse, half truths or outright misrepresentation. GSB-88 Gilsonite Sealer Binder Rejuvenator is one of the most tested sealers in history, and guess what... it consistently has the best performance and lowest cost to use. Last but not least it has been tested and proven to be environmentally safe. Non-Toxic, non-hazardous, non-mutagenic, and non-carcinogenic GSB-88 passes with flying colors! Need more info go to:
