black mac

I am having difficulty getting CT in the North, I can make a trip to Barrie and get some there no problems, A paving Co here was going to carry it but decided not too. I have called around and McAsphalt carries Black Mac, what are the differences with CT and Black Mac,

last season I used CT, my first season, and really like to look of the driveways, I passed by a few that I had done last year and they still look good, will Black Mac hold up as well?

anyone? I just sprayed it on the road in front of my place and it isnt coming out of the tip very nicely, should I use a bigger sized tip? like a 30 or 40? I was using a 20 with the CT and the Ct was mixed 100/30.

Are you serious? Coal Tar is waterbased - BlackMac is oil. You don't add water to BlacMac. Coal tar is Flat Matt Black , BlackMac oil is shinny. Your spray machine likely won't spray oil if it was built for Coal Tar.

You need a gear pump, for the BlackMac.
