Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 69gojoe Very unhappy
I am starting to think regardless of which quality of this product you buy it doesn't seem to matter it is all junk. In 2011 I used the mid grade sealer from this same manufacture and it didn't last so last year 2014 I did it again this time I used the Optimum sealer at $24.46 a pail. x 7 pails $181.49 only to have a lot of areas flaking off after one winter. It wasn't due to improper cleaning or application of the product. This product just seems to be an inferior drive way sealer. After spending all that time and money I am totally discussed with this product. Buyer beware. Do your self a favor and look at another manufacture of driveway sealers.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Condor Good Sealer for the $$$$.
I have used this produce three times in the past 10 years. The last application was in 2012. I have a South facing driveway which is great for melting snow, but harsh on the asphalt. I highly recommend turning the buckets of this product over the night before you apply its contents. Makes for a much easier time of stirring the contents (the only bucket I had a problem consistency wise with was one I didn't turn over). The product goes on easy and solidifies to a nice black finish. Hardest and most time consuming part of the process was actually prepping the driveway: Edging the grass, using a very hard bristle push broom to dislodge the old, disintegrating, sealer. Then washing down the whole driveway, and then using a standard push broom to clean up the last of the disintegrating chunks. Prepping is KEY in sealing your driveway. Make sure you buy one additional bucket then you think you need (nothing worse then having to stop and fetch a new bucket at the store if you run out). You can always take the extra bucket back (like I will). Don't mind telling you the whole process from prep to final seal takes about 5 to 6 hours (if you're going to do it right). I was going to have a professional do it this time, but had a guy at work tell me he has had 3 so called professional seals in the past 3-4 years and they have not turned out well. If you do have it done by a professional, make sure you do some prep work yourself for a better seal. Overall, this was a pretty good product to seal my driveway.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by PompanoPete Airport Grade? I don't think so!
I used this "airport grade" in South Florida. After it was applied it had several perfect days to cure, I used the squeegee as recommended, etc. But 6 months later, it has completely washed off. No airports uses this lame stuff. I suspect all of these water based sealants just wash off like this after a few months of sun and rain, no matter what the manufacturer says, especially in harsher climates like South Florida. I had some pros spray the oil based black tar sealant several years ago and it lasted a couple years. It looks much like the black tar stuff you see them put on roofs. The pro oil/tar based stinks for a while, but lasts way way longer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JRAH Easy for 62 year old woman.
I followed the directions, cans upside down and strategicly located in my large driveway. I am a woman and didn't want to carry the heavy cans around. Mixer didn't work(wrong size), so I had to stir every can which wasn't too bad. It applied smoothly and I love the lines going back and forth. I'm a little OCB on visual appearance. It took nine cans and five hours including edging. The driveway was new five years ago and this was the first application. I love the way it looks.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Just4Umom Worst sealer, worthless warranty, worst customer service.
I prepped/power washed my driveway and applied Latexite Airport Grade Sealer during the first week of September 2014, letting it dry for 3 days before and after application. I had the driveway replaced in 2011 and this was the first coat of sealer ever applied to it. When the snow and ice melted away in March we noticed over half of the sealer was gone as well. This has never happened with other brands I have used during the 21 years I have lived here in Grand Rapids, MI.
I called, left a voicemail, and received a call back 2 days later telling me to complete a warranty form from their website. About 10 days later I received an email telling me that I should have power washed my driveway first, something I had already told them. They offered to replace the 10 buckets I used on my 3100' sq.ft. driveway. I replied to the email asking for a refund and have been calling their phone number. No response for almost a week so far. They don't answer their phone. Voicemail only. Very Poor customer service.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kh3359 Goes on SMOOTH
This product goes on very smooth and easy. ALL of our customers love the results. We will continue to use it for all sealing jobs. The price may be just slightly higher than other sealers, but in the end IT IS WORTH IT.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Daboyisin 1st Time user. Great Look
Overall I am quite satisfied
Things have gone well with applying this product. I love the fresh look it gives my driveway.
Just wanted to tell other users its quite messy. I recommend wearing old clothes you can discard. Washing them is NOT an option and could spot the inside walls of your machine. And wear rubber gloves to keep it off your hands . very hard to remove from cuticle area
Clean up when WET is easy. And almost impossible when dry. Which tells me it should stay on well.
I found it to be easy to put on with a 1 1/2 inch nap paint roller. I tried a broom , but quickly switched to a roller and found it MUCH easier. the instructions called for a squeegee but my drive is too rough to consider that.
. This product has a 3 yr warranty. I used 13 buckets so far. Our drive in very wide and long.
