Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Hank Makeup for your driveway
This product goes on easily. Great water clean up. If you're using it the week of your daughter's wedding and want your driveway to look nice for the gathering, this stuff is for you. The weeks after applying it the driveway looked great. HOWEVER, once the snow flew....forget it. Each and ever crack covered by this stuff has re-emerged as if I had used black waterpaint on the surface. I was scrupulous in terms of following the direction and had the surface perfectly prepared. I look out at the driveway now and wish I hadn't wasted my time and a couple hundred bucks on product.

I read all the reviews on this product, and it held up to it's claim.
I've seen other people lay it down when temp. was below 55 degrees at
night , and their Drive Way Did Not Cure Right, and You Have To Watch Weather
and Make Sure The Temp. Is Right, And No Rain For At Least 2-3 Days.
My Drive Way Looks Brand New !!
Power Wash Your Drive Way Before Laying The Sealer Down, And If
There Are Any Oil Stains On Your Drive Way They Sell Oil Stain Primer, and
That's So The Oil Stain Will Be Covered With Drive Way Sealer.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by fakeusa Terrible covarage and plan for a second coat.
I sealcoated my driveway Friday morning June 12th using 10 pails of Ultra Shield. The driveway is 4 years old, in excellent shape and has never been sealcoated before. I prepped the driveway with a broom and gas blower, there were no oil stains. I never washed my cars or applied tire shine on my driveway knowing that when the day came which I would sealcoat I did not want any adhesion issues. Like all asphalt driveways, mine has a mixture of areas which are smooth like glass and areas which are more textured. This was the way the driveway was since the day it was paved, these textured areas are not from any kind of erosion. I’ve personally sealcoated driveways in the past and have a good method of applying. I used a new squeegee and always applied steady pressure. I made even passes while moving the bead of sealant down my driveway and never left any extra material, I was looking to apply the thinnest coat possible. As the sealcoating dried I noticed cracking in all the textured areas on my asphalt, even the slightest dimple, it’s like it shrunk while drying. I’m not very happy, this never happened with the Optimum or Airport grade products I’ve applied in the past at other properties. Those products always dried nice and these driveways were not in anywhere near as good shape as mine. I sent a message to Dalton, their short reply was to apply 2 coats. Ummm… no! I didn’t budget for another 10 pails. I should have bought the cheaper stuff which coats better but only lasts on the driveway for 2 years at best.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brian Great purchase - I did 300 ft long driveway
First I put filler in the cracks. It took a couple of days to dry. the temperature needs to be 60 to 70 Degrees.
Than I used the squeegee to spared the sealer around and the it looked wary professional. I would definite recommend this for others to use.

This product was terrific. It went on very nicely and covered exactly the square footage it said it would. Looks like a new driveway and considering what it looked like before that's saying a lot. I don't know how the cheaper stuff would have worked but for a few dollars why take a chance on something I haven't done in five years and won't do for another five. It did take a while to dry. I waited three days before I felt I could drive on it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ChefoftheFuture Great Product, Works as promised
I was never a fan of driveway sealers, but since our winters have been extra harsh, I decided that it would be a good idea, since our driveway is older and has some cracks. I power-washed the driveway, and used 2 types of crack fillers for the larger ones. Then I applied 2 coats of the Sealer. It adhered well, does not come off on shoes and resists very heavy rainfalls. This product seems like it has some sand or fine aggregate to fill hairline cracks. Follow the directions, mix well using a power drill and paint mixer. If it's hot, mist the driveway without pooling water, it will make the sealer easier to spread with a squeegee. Get more than you think you will need, especially if your driveway is rough. As with painting, cut in around the edges first with a large or masonry brush. The job will go much quicker if the edges are done out to about 8 inches. Time will tell how long this will last, but so far, so good!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sealer Excellent product, and a very good shopping experience.
This is our second time using this driveway sealer, with the previous one lasting for 2 years without significant degradation. With many small cracks in our steep driveway, we wanted to be more proactive and treat the problem before it became worst. We have tried a number of similar products with this one being the best in how it coats the pavement, in its thickness during application and the traction that it creates. Greater quantity of this sealer would be required as compared to other sealers that we have tried.
