It depends on the asphalt. Paragon, with their two different compounds, works differently on the type of asphalt. Original Paragon (Black can) works best with high traction sealed asphalt. While low traction "green" asphalt, Paragon FXII (White can) works better.

What has always been good for me, was Black Can 20 - 30 minutes before, then coat with suntan lotion a few minutes before and wipe off...
