whats this called? thick sealer with sand...

i saw some city contractors put down some thick sealer over a strech of a pavement shoulder. they cleaned out the cracks and then laid this stuff out. looked like they poured it and spread it with a squeegy or similar.
the sealer was black, laid down to about a good 1/4 to 3/8 of an inch, and had sand in it. it makes the blacktop look like new.
what is this called?

Sounds like a product called "MicroSeal". They use it here on some roads. It is supposed to extend the life of asphalt pavement just like regular sealer. The difference is, that this product is for pavements that see heavy amounts of traffic, where your regular driveway sealer would wear off in a month or two.

Its not over kill for a driveway or parking lot , its just that the equipment to do the work is expensive and its not cost effective unless you are doing large jobs .

Here its called slurry paving or slurry seal

Correct-Likely a slurry seal or microsurface treatment. I run construction for the local government and we use that on streets that are not ready for resurfacing
