I prepped my driveway by first blowing all the dust and debris away, then spraying on Latexite driveway cleaner allowing it to stand 5 minutes then pressure washed my drive way. I then repeated the process insuring my surface was completely clean I rinsed it twice each time to assure no leftover cleaner residue was present . I mixed this product thoroughly and then applied one coat Latexite Optimum sealer to driveway. The next day I applied a second coat and the finished product looked great. I then waited one week before driving on it.
The bad news is that now about three months later it's beginning to crack in tiny sections or chips in such a pattern resembling shattered glass. As time passes the cracks multiply. It should be remembered first that this is supposed to be a sealer which it cannot be if I have thousands of little cracks allowing water in and underneath it. I know winter will destroy this stuff when this water gets underneath these chips, freezes and I suspect begins popping them loose.
I've had visitors ask me " what's going on with all the cracks" ?
Terrible product !
I do not recommend using this product it won't last and you will be coating your drive again, it's a waste of money.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TonyP Looks great on a 60+ year old driveway, but buy more than you need
I have a 60+ year old New Jersey driveway, and its pretty big. My initial purchase was 12 buckets, thinking I'd get pretty far. Well with an old, pitted driveway such as mine, the first session only got me about 30' down my 30' wide driveway. There wasn't much to fill in terms of cracks, so I only powerwashed and used a blower afterwards to clean up as far as prep. I had also started the project with an old squeegee that had a very thin blade. So that was on me. Definitely buy the new thick-bladed squeegee so you can apply more downforce and spread the product thinner.
However, the results of 1 coat on this practically white driveway are pretty impressive.
After all is said and done, I'll have purchased close to 40 buckets in 4 trips to HD, and sealing in 4 seperate sessions... and that's just for the driveway portion on the front half of my property. I really should have hired a company that has a sprayer since I have such a large amount of driveway that needs sealed, but at least I can say I tried it. If you have a small "normal" driveway, then this product is pretty good.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by snomobile not the results I expected
After two days of working on the driveway.....used a weedeater to edge driveway, washed with a driveway cleaner using a stiff broom and pressure washer. Filled cracks with trowel mix and liquid filler. This was one day of prep. Second day temp was in the 80's and sunny. I applied as directed with a squeegee. Everything was drying evenly and it looked good. I checked on it the morning after and any place that had any kind of surface imperfection, small crack etc the sealer had DRIED AND CRACKED. This product is labeled as a FILLER SEALER. I looks terrible and I have to put a second coat on. How do I know the second coat won't do the same??

SO I got this product on the basis of some good and some bad reviews. I did buy 7 drums and did follow all the instruction as per manufacture. Got drums and put them upside down a night before . Used a mixer bit with drill . low intensity Power washed the drive way a day in advance and then air blowed with a air blower before wiping it with broom and did apply at the time when night temperature was more than >55 . Took me two days to finish the job and before this applied crack filler . did a double coat too . SO In short after 2 days and > 150 bucks spent I got a beautiful looking drive way . Did this in September and here we go in feb and this thing is peeling off like old paint . I have not contacted the manufacture so far and will upgrade this review if I get any positive response from them . Please see the picture and you will understand what I am saying. some places it is perfect but most the places it is peeling down and I am afraid to airflow and clean my driveway as it comes out with that. any how please don't was time and money on this product as it won't last me for about 6 months so forget about 8 yrs warranty .
This year we do not have a bad winter in Cleveland and I don't even plow my drive way . I just my self plow by hand so no harsh damage from commercial snow plow too and still that results. I am not mad about the money but the time I spent in this thing and then in less than six months it peels off like a 50 year old lead paint .

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by krunch97 my sealing go to product
I always use this with great results. I also do about 20 driveways for people and use this because it goes on like glaze with hardly any struggle and looks great after. Please note donot dilute it and apply at a steady pace, a long driveway takes 1 hr 30 min to squeege down. Do not roll. Along edges leave extra to let it settle. Love the product the cheap stuff is no comparison and is 3x harder to apply.

I ordered a pallet and saved a significant amount of money. I took my time and prepped the driveway per the companies recommendations. I turned all containers upside down days before starting. I flipped the containers back over and used a drill mixture first and boxed the material into another bucket several times before pouring it on the driveway. The temperature on the day I sealed was 79 degrees. It took me 6 hours todo half the driveway, which was 17 buckets. I kept the vehicles off for 3 days. So far, it looks fantastic and I hope it lasts a long time. Based on my prep work, I am confident it's going to last.

Did the prep the day before. Put 2 coats on and it looked good. A week later I noticed there were tire marks and spots where the surface had powdered and dissolved. Since I had half a bucket left I put a third coat on part of the driveway, after a short time this also flaked off. Three months later after thunderstorms and Florida sun, it is flaking off all over, particularly, after a very heavy rain.
Now its 4 months after and my driveway looks as bad as it was before I used this product.
