U.S. Seal International Inc. - Inventor or Pitch Black Sealcoat

U.S. Seal International, Inc. strives to provide a high-quality asphalt emulsion sealcoat formula and machinery that consistently delivers excellent results and a reputation built upon generations of asphalt and sealcoat industry experience.  We are a family-owned business with over 50 years of family history in the asphalt and sealcoating industry. Owned and operated by Robert Archie, U.S. Seal International, Inc. provides high-quality asphalt emulsion sealcoat plants and an asphalt emulsion sealcoat formula (Pitch Black®) that has been tested and used for over 25 years.  We are located in Reno, NV and set up plants nationwide.

"Owning a plant is a great opportunity for people. We set them up, we teach them how to make the material, we help them get their clients (which ends up being the easiest part), and we do the research to ensure that the products they need are available in their area. After we do all that, more often than not, within about a half a year they have paid for their plant. That's how fast it is."

The Archie Family Has Been in the Sealcoating Industry for Three Generations

Archie's grandfather specialized in road construction in Niagara Falls, NY in the 1920s and eventually developed a paving company. In the 1940s, Archie's grandfather partnered with Earl Archie (Archie's father) to create some of the very first sealcoat plants. Passing down the trade to a new generation, Earl Archie then partnered with his son, Robert Archie (owner of U.S. Seal), in the 1970s. Robert Archie also opened his own company in the 1980s called Asphalt Protectors, Inc. through which we developed his patented Pitch Black® asphalt emulsion sealcoat formula. At the turn of the century, he sold his contracting company to focus on his true passion - licensing the Pitch Black® formula and building asphalt emulsion sealcoat plants.
