What is coal tar-free driveway sealer?

Coal tar-free driveway sealer is a type of driveway sealant made without coal tar. Coal tar can produce harmful PAH chemicals that mean it is banned for use in some areas. By minimizing the use of coal tar, driveway sealant becomes better for the environment, with no inconvenient odor.

Coal tar-free doesn’t have to mean inferior quality – in fact, coal tar-free driveway sealers produce incredible results that will protect your driveway from the elements and keep it looking fresh.

Why should I choose a coal tar-free driveway?

More and more people are choosing to have a coal tar-free driveway. Some of the benefits of choosing a coal tar-free driveway include:


Coal tar-free driveway sealer is better for the environment. It produces fewer PAHs, low VOCs and no solvents. It doesn’t create a chemical burn, unlike coal tar sealants, making it a more eco-friendly alternative for your property.

No nasty odor

One of the drawbacks of having a new driveway is the initial odor. That heavy, lingering tar smell can be offputting, and it often returns during hot weather. A coal tar-free driveway sealant doesn’t have the same chemical-filled, nasty odor, making it more pleasant for you and your family.


Not only is coal tar-free driveway sealer free from many harmful chemicals, it is also non-flammable, making it safe to install and maintaining safety long after it’s been installed.

A coal tar-free driveway sealer provides excellent performance, making it great valuable money for you. Helping to protect your driveway from moisture, freezing and thawing and other environmental damage, you’ll be making a great investment for your home. Lasting up to 5x longer than your typical sealant, you won’t need to worry about renewing your driveway in a hurry.
