Product Overview

Introducing the only permanent filler for concrete joints and cracks: 125 ft. Medium Gray Permanent Concrete Joint and Crack Filler. This product originated from federally specified highway jobs but the only difference is you do not need a 200 Gal. melter to apply it. Crack-Stix is permanent because it is applied with heat (a simple hand held torch) and it bonds to the sidewalls of the crack. Cracks open up because they expand and contract with freeze or thaw cycles - but Crack-Stix will expand and contract right along with mother nature. Medium Crack-Stix is designed for joints and cracks 1/2 in. to 1 in. in Dia.

California residents: see  Proposition 65 information

  • For concrete joints and cracks 1/2 in. - 1 in. (12.7 mm - 25.4 mm) in Dia
  • 125 ft. (38.1 m) of medium-gray Crack-Stix
  • Hot applied, self-leveling gray, rope-like filler bonds to sidewalls
  • Traffic ready in approximately 20 minutes
  • Chlorine resistant - great for pool deck concrete joints
  • No volatile organic compounds
  • Prevent slip, trip and fall accidents
  • Will also work on faded blacktop (for those that do not want the contrast of a black crack filler)
  • For deep cracks or joints, before you begin fill the crack using backer rod, sand, or stone dust but leave enough room for product

Is support required?

This question is from 16 lb. 125 ft. Medium Gray Permanent Concrete Joint and Crack Filler
Asked by

When installing Crack-Stix in spaces which previously had 1x4 wood spacers, does the space below the Crack-Stix need to be filled with something to prevent it from "running" down into the space when heated? Wouldn't backer rod melt when heat is applied to the Crack-Stix? Any usage suggestions would be appreciated.

You can find flame retardant backer rod out there, or simply break and stack pieces to fill the area within reason of course.

Answer: 
Yes, we do recommend using a heat resistant backer rod or dry sand to act as support for the crack stix product until it is able to set up.

Answer: 
I am not sure. The product did not specifically prevent vertical surface application. But common sense says since it requires melt down to install, vertical surface is not a good idea.

Answer: 
Yes it will bond to both substrates. Getting the product in there may be difficult without a crack for the material to settle in.

When placing in backer rod or dry sand and then the crack filler, do you want the rod filler to be above the height of the cement before melting or even with the height of the cement before melting?

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 33 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by crack filler Product is very easy to use and durable. I have had this in my driveway for two years, and is still holding up. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ideal solution for replacing wood expansion joints in concrete I had several areas in our driveway and walk way up to our front door where the wood expansion joints were either rotted or missing. I was looking for a product like this and it was ideal for my application. It was easy to install using a MAPP torch. The key is to make sure the depth of the crack is not more than the manufacturer specs...if it is, you can use stone dust or similar fill material to bring up to an appropriate level. June 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Product Great - Home Depot Service Poor The product is great. Took 10 hours to do about 75' of 3/4 cement expansion seems in my garage. But well worth the effort once done. I recommend Mapp gas, as it got hotter and worked better. Home Depot sent the wrong size, even though my online order was correct. This required me to do all seems twice. I ordered grey medium and received black small. Tired of Home Depot mistakes. August 4, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Crack and Joint Filler I put down 250 feet of filler in my driveway and sidewalk with the cane applicator in about ten hours using 4 small bottles of propane. The filler holds tight and even stand up to pressure washing with a 2400 PSI power washer. March 8, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Indoor pool deck I have high hopes for this product as there are not a lot of choices to fill expansion joints around a pool that is open every day. I did about 10 feet and it was not looking good (please see picture). It was lumpy, there were lines of bubbles, and discolored in some areas (not from burning). We eventually figured out that the problem was the plastic wrap around the product that keeps it from sticking together inside the bucket. Presumably, you can just melt it right in. Not what we found. We got beautiful, smooth, glossy results only when we removed the plastic (it is a pain in the butt, but it looks great). Another benefit of removing the plastic is the smell is much easier to tolerate. I will write again later after the product has been in for a while and let you know how it's holding up. February 17, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent product !!!! CRACK-STIX was very easy to use and did a good job self leveling after heat was applied. I like the finish it has and after the first rain we had ,water seem to run off my walk like it's supposed to now. NOTE: Below are two pics of sidewalk. One before cracks were filled and one after CRACK-STIX were used. June 9, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good sealer It worked very well to create a seal between slabs in my driveway. Excellent value and not difficult to use. It is, however, rather tedious. Even given that, I'd use it again. December 29, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by disappointing First, the product does fulfill it's intended purpose of filling expansion concrete expansion joints. It's much too soon to comment on longevity, but the set product seems to be there for the duration. The problem lies in the difficulty in application and total expense of the product. Unless you have a previous joint compound requiring clean out, the work required to clean out the joint is not terribly difficult, but it is time consuming and uncomfortable (stoop labor). Pre-heating the joint was easy, even with some pretty damp concrete to start, but again, it takes time and is hard on back and knees Laying out the product is as easy as they say; although in cooler weather (50 deg F) it may take some extra bending/twisting to get it to lay flat in the crack. Heating the compound is more art than science. You'll vacillate between spending too much time on a section to finally get it to melt and burning the product before you get into a "Goldilocks" rhythm that is just right. The problem is that all the previous work will not exhibit the smooth, uniform service you were hoping for, and you can't really go back and re-heat to smooth it out (product is thermo-setting, not thermo-plastic, so you'd better get it right the first time). If appearance is critical, you're probably not the person who should be buying this. Finally, the coverage is abysmal. Joints wider than 1/2" will take 2X-4X as much product as you think, so this stuff get expensive. One pail did about 40' of 3/4" joint for me. Thought I was clever in using foam backer rod to take up space, but - spoiler alert - the foam does not react well to application of a torch. If you think this is the stuff you want, consider using sand to create a new, uniform bottom for the joint and laying the compound on top of it. January 19, 2016
