This product saved my driveway. This is exactly what I was looking for. The repair is very similar to that used in road construction and commercial parking lots. I used a regular hand held push button torch
with regular propane, not mapp gas. I did my entire driveway, and I had close to 100 cracks. I used 2 propane bottles.Cures in 20 in 20 minutes. I sealed my driveway the next day. Shipping was fast and free.

The only problem with my driveway this year were tree roots searching for water which lead to cracks in the asphalt. I had an estimator from a sealing company give me a $1,500 price to seal my driveway but told me a little secret about ''CRACK STIX"......needless to say I saved me a bunch of money to get the same job done. On the negative side it was obvious there was some sealing done which did not match the old faded drive way, I can live with that for the $1,435 difference.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Phil Didn't work for me
I struggled to push this into a 1/8 inch crack. Even in wider cracks, it wanted to stick to the screw driver more than the blacktop. The plastic wrap didn't help. Instructions for cutting this with a screw driver are a joke. I also tried a box cutter and scissors. I finally used tin snips. I tried stretching the cut pieces to fit, but it was still a struggle to push it into the crack and get it to stay. The instructions say to push it into the crack below the surface and not to overfill. I couldn't do it. I hoped melting it would allow it to run into and fill the crack, which didn't really work either. I finally gave up after making little progress.

This allowed me to fill voids between garage & driveway slabs w/o a hot pot to melt tar-based crack fillers.
This stuff comes coiled-up in a plastic bucket, coil length's contiguous & wrapped in a cellophane-like material permitting coiled tar to be handled cleanly while placing it in desired area. Once in place coating melts along w/ filler material. Nice.
ONLY suggestion I have is: material's melting point be lowered. I used a small torch, kind plumbers use for soldering, and it took quite a few 12" passes before melting; but, once it does melt it easily flows filling cracks completely. IF material melted easier I'd have given a full 5 stars, otherwise am satisfied.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bob Works good
This stuff seems to work pretty good but only time will tell how it really holds up. Any crack less than 3/8" needs to have the rope cut in half so the filler sinks into the crack and doesnt sit on the asphalt. Takes a little practice to get the hang of it but after you figure it out, it goes quick. I used a handheld propane torch and just made sure not to heat the asphalt too hot.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Crackaddict The stuff works pretty well
This is not the easiest way to fill cracks in a concrete driveway, but it seems to have done the job. We'll see how it survives the winter. It's best if your cracks are all uniform width and depth. In my 40-year-old driveway, the cracks were nowhere near uniform. I had some so wide I used the product 3 strands wide. Some were so deep I added gravel to make my own Macadam. Some were so narrow I had to stretch the product to make it skinnier. My main concerns were to prevent water seepage and to get rid of weeds. Already a few weeds have grown through the product where it binds to the concrete, but they are very few and far between. All in all, I'm satisfied with how this stuff works.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JR Fill crack between asphalt and building foundation.
We had a gap between the building foundation and the asphalt parking lot, due to asphalt contraction, that caused a water leak inside the building. I was looking for asphalt crack fillers on the internet when I found the Crack Stix product. I watched the video, and thought that it might work for what we wanted to do. We used the product last week, and it did a great job filling the gap. Now we just need a good rain to see if the leak has been eliminated.
