    I am curious in figuring out the price of sealant. I use BlackMac which is a tar based sealant.

    For example:

    If I charge somebody $150 for 800 sq.ft, how much would my product cost?

    how much surface can 1L cover?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    ALOT of factors will affect that.

    -Your pressure on the pump
    -The engine rev speed
    -Your walking speed when you spray.
    -If it's windy or not.

    Some driveways I do is just a quick seal from customers who do it every year so I don't need to spray a lot. Older driveways that haven't been seal in a quiet a while, I will spray it a bit quicker.

    800sq/f in Ottawa, no cracks, I would charge 220$ for that and it would cost me around 30-60$ in sealer.

    The coverage is around 30sq/f per liter
