Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Colester You will regret using this product!!!
Rented power washer at 3000 psi. Cleaned driveway. Applied Latexite Degreaser. Rinsed thoroughly. Applied Latexite Shallow Trowel Patch in two small areas. Applied Latexite Oil Sealer in one small area. Applied Latexite Ultra Shield to driveway with squeegee.
Followed ALL directions to a “T”. Waited 48 hours to drive on the driveway. Immediately saw marks in the driveway. Waited ANOTHER 5 days before getting back on it. Virtually every time I drive on the driveway and particularly when I turn my wheels the Ultra Shield comes off. My driveway looks bad and it appears that it is only going to get worse. See attached pictures.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Oldtimer The Black is back
Had part of our blacktop drive recently replaced and then it made the original part look washed out. Special ordered this product since it had a 10 year warranty versus the 3 to 4 year stuff sold in the store. It has only been down about one month, but looks great so far.
The product specs said that it would cover 300 sq.ft. per pail. I only got 183 sq.ft. per pail. Had to order 8 more pails to complete the project, but I will be happy if it actually holds up for the 10 year period.
Pictures below show the before and after results.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BruceBunson Great Product - Coverage was way under what was labeled.
I'm happy with how my driveway looks after using this product. I spent the extra money for the 10yr in hopes it will truly last longer than the 8yr, but only time will tell.
My only complaint, and it's not even much of a complaint as it is a FYI, The buckets say they covers 300-500 sq ft. I played it safe as my driveway was in pretty rough shape and assumed it was really closer to the 300 side, so for my 700sq. ft. driveway I bought 3 buckets (min. est. = 900sq. ft.), and had hopes of scraping by with a second coat using the left overs. However, 2/3 the way down my driveway I burned through all three buckets. Long story short three trips to HD and 6 buckets total, I ended up needing 4.5ish buckets for 1 coat. which means that each bucket actually covered roughly 150 sq. ft.
As expected the second coat used up much less, but still covered less that 300 sq. ft.
I don't blame the product at all for the amount it actually covers. You plan ahead as best you can so you don't have to run back the store mid project, and it makes it hard when the the product info throws a curve ball at you. And the only way you're covering 500 sp. ft. with this product is it you're coating wet glass.
Another thing to note, I spend the extra money for the best product. For 3 buckets that was only $15 more. No big deal. But since I ended up needing 6 buckets it ended up being $30 more. Still not a huge deal, but it's never to fun to pay more than you thought.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easttowest Easy to apply
I used Latex-ite about 7 years ago and was impressed how easily latex base goes on. Not wanting to let the seal wear off I decided to seal it again using Ultra Shield. Very pleased with the ease of application again and for 1100 sq ft it took less than 2 buckets to do the first coat. I see where a lot of comments are getting 100 to 300 sq ft per bucket and they must be driveways in bad shape. If you keep it in good shape and properly care for it there is little expense or time involved when you seal it again. I would recommend this product. Hopefully this is the last time I seal it and will move to a beach condo

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by driveway2016 Great Quality
I am very happy with this purchase. It came in to store a few days earlier than estimated date. I have a very large driveway, about 4500 sq. ft., and the coverage rate for never previously seal asphalt was about 350 sq. ft. per bucket. The finished product looks very good. There are some squeegee marks on it. I am going to do a second coat mostly for aesthetics. Product spread easily and should provide great protection for years.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MROC Coverage Area is Tiny, but Great Results
Like many other reviewers, I found the coverage area to be way under the expected amount. I have a 30x15 driveway, so I figured 2 buckets for a coat would be adequate. It took 5 full buckets to cover 450 square feet. The surface was rough, and in reading Dalton's fine print warranty documentation they make a mention of a difference between "road grade" and "driveway" asphalt. So, if you know your aggregate specs, you'll be ahead of the game. For the rest of us, double the amount you think you'll need, and then buy an extra bucket or two. That makes the product not just $5 a bucket more than the lower grades, but more like double the price by the time you apply the product to the whole area. The end result looks great, but the product is significantly more expensive than I thought it would be.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wookie Works as advertised
Great product! I prepared the driveway as suggested and the night before I tipped the closed containers over. Don't know if this helped with the mixing but someone had suggested flipping the buckets. The next morning opened the containers and no mixing was necessary. The entire bucket was consistently mixed and spread easily with a rubber squeegee. Used three buckets all great consistently and color match.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LIAnthony30 Poor results... Even with perfect weather and following directions to the tee.
Followed directions step by step. Everything went extremely smooth and after applying two coats the driveway looked like black ice. Everything was great until we resumed our normal use of the driveway over two and a half days later. Our tires left marks in the driveway. The sealer still seemed wet and tacky. We had perfect weather all week and no rain. How could the sealer possibly not have dried?? VERY DISAPPOINTED !
