Top Tuff™

Film Toughener For Pavement Sealers

Sizes Available

5 Gallon Pail, 55 Gallon Drum


Top Tuff™ is a polymer latex resin emulsion designed to modify both asphalt based and coal tar based pavement sealer emulsions. Top Tuff™ imparts outstanding toughness, locks in aggregate, and provides a blacker color to the cured, dried film.


• Improves surface toughness.
• Anchors in sand for extended wear.
• Helps suspend sand.
• Reduces power steering marks.
• Provides a blacker dried sealer film.
• Enhances resistance to oils, fuels, and grease.

Mixing Procedures

With mixing tank agitator turning, add proper amount of water to pavement sealer concentrate. Following the addition of water, add 2% Top Tuff™ based upon pavement sealer concentrate (2 gallons of Top Tuff™ per 100 gallons of pavement sealer concentrate). Dilute Top Tuff™ 1:1 with water before adding to sealer mix to reduce polymer shock and promote uniform dispersion. When mix begins to thicken, add sand slowly. Agitate thoroughly before and slowly during sealer application.


For optimum performance and durability apply 2 coats of properly mixed SealMaster® pavement sealer fortified with Top Tuff™ and sand. A third coat may be applied to high traffic areas such as entrances, exits, and drive lanes.

Apply mixed pavement sealer fortified with Top Tuff™ at a rate of .11 to .13 gallon per square yard (70-82 square feet per gallon) per coat.

NOTE: Application rates may vary somewhat due to pavement age and porosity.


Both surface and ambient temperature shall be a minimum of 50°F and rising before and during application. Temperatures shall not drop below 50°F in a 24 hour period following application. New asphalt surfaces should be allowed to cure a minimum of four weeks under ideal weather conditions (70°F) before applying SealMaster® pavement sealer fortified with Top Tuff. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. Do not store unopened drums or pails in freezing temperatures.
