Home Improvement--General/asphalt sealing with dry portland cement

i have just had my storage facility paved and one of the operators told me the same thing about portland cement. the owners of the asphalt company said no way but did suggest that they could properly seal it for $5 a yard. i get the impression that using the proper sealer is better but way more expensive. i plan to let the pavement cure and then try a small area with the cement. i was told that the cement will change the color of the asphalt so if you want to keep it black you may want to use the proper sealant

My Dad did this to his new ashphalt driveway...although I don't recall if he let it cure awhile.  I do recall that he did do it and that it lasted well and looked very nice.  Much cooler too.
