Product Overview

Latex-ite 4.75 Gal. Optimum Driveway Filler Sealer is an asphalt emulsion based sealer designed to beautify and protect your blacktop driveway. Optimum will leave a deep black color while providing strength and flexibility with its reinforced fiber and rubber system. Recommended for all condition blacktop driveways. Helpful Hints before you seal your driveway: 1. Buy an extra pail: Any unused portion CAN be saved for touch-ups (You do not want to run out during the project as you might get color variations) 2. Flip pails overnight prior to doing job (It will be much easier to mix in the morning and will ensure consistency during application). 3. Do the project all at one time without starting and stopping. 4. Check the weather and make sure no rain is forecast and it is at least 55°F at night (A cold driveway will not allow the sealer to cure properly). 5. Check latexite.com for further tips and How to Videos. (Note: If product is not available to order in your area that is due to nighttime temperatures. Product may not cure and/or track in late fall and early spring applications).

Answer: 
Depends on your applicator. With squeegee, expect less than 400 s.f. per. Mfr. recommends thin coats "better than thick..." I used a brush. Yield right at 500 ft. Their crack filler and patch are the best I've ever used, also. Think I'm actually improving my driveway, not just slowing its decline.

Answer: 
Depends how bad your driveway is. Mine was in bad shape with a lot of areas that had not been sealed in years. If yours is like that take the estimate and cut it in half for a more realistic number.

Answer: 
Depends on the temperature. I applied mine and it was super warm out and in the sun, the majority was dried within 48 hours. There where parts that where thicker and I waited a bit,. Follow the instructions on the package for temperature requirements, It really has to be warm enough. I would not drive on it for 48 hours.

You can walk on it after a day as long as its warm and sunny. I had some shaded areas that I could see weren't dry after the first day though. Didn't drive on it until after 3 days. Applied on a Friday, pulled the cars into the driveway on Monday. It really depends on the weather.

Depends on what you mean by cracks. Its not billed as a crack sealer. I patched my cracks that where wider pre apply this sealer. I did have some barely hariline cracks and this did a great job for filling them. I would not use this to fill anything larger than hairline ones.

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 145 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Lucky To Get 2 Years, Let Alone 8.... Bought 9 buckets of this in 2014. Followed the instructions and put 'er down. Looked nice. Pretty much was looking gone come May 2015. Will definitely have to redo this year. Best thing about this product is the squeegee applicator that the company makes and recommends for application - the squeegee is a quality product. That you have to buy separately. The actual sealer, not so much. Although, where there's no traffic on the driveway(in the narrow middle, for example), the product looks good. So go do your driveway and don't use it for 8 years and you'll be all set. Otherwise, just assume you're gonna be doing it every year or two and get the cheap stuff..... August 20, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dissappointing Results 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. August 14, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 26, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst Product Ever My neighbor and I applies 9 pails of this product on Saturday and did not use the shared driveway until Monday .....Sunny and dry both Saturday and Sunday. Today is Tuesday and the material is already worn off where ever we have driven down to the base stone that was visible before we started. I have been doing driveways myself for over 35 years and this product is the worst. Save your money and don't buy this! Apparently I wasted mine time and $$$. September 20, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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?? August 8, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good product Easy to apply. Follow directions and you won't go wrong...with one exception...if you have a driveway that hasn't been sealed in 7+ years you will need to buy extra. My driveway is 1,620 sq.ft using the low coverage number of 300 sq ft I bought 6 pails. Wound up using 8.25 pails. End result was good but the cracks really soak it up even though I pre-filled the larger ones. Might try a second coat for the worst areas if the weather holds out. September 5, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It works great for me I seal my driveway every 5 years and I've never had a problem with this product. I do follow the instructions to the letter without exception and put on two coats. I've never let it go the full 8 years as the warranty claim states it will last but after 5 years it still looks good. September 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Better then Menards silmar product. Easy to use and really no stirring required, goes on easy. September 6, 2016
