Asphalt: consists of 1/2 inch average of sand and dry hardening oil mixed up.
Asphalt Sealer: consists of black colored latex, sand, putty, fibers. The goal of asphalt sealant is to seal up asphalt surface to protect it from the sun drying out the oils in asphalt and water washing out sand and aggregates. When it's dry it makes the surface smooth and black.
