I have a small torch and tank that I never used for plumbing work like soldering. Can I use that to heat up the pli-stix?

Answer: 
Yes - I bought this product last fall and used the small hand held torch to melt in to place. After the winter a couple small spots seem to have separated but the directions said it could be reheated to repair that. I will try it in a couple weeks.

Answer: 
Suppose the torch comes off the 14 oz propane tank at a 30 degree angle? would that be sufficient to prevent the flame from going out when working on the driveway?

Answer: 
Yes, as long as the torch comes off the top of the tank on a 90 degree. If the torch goes straight up, than the torch will most likely flame out when inverted.

Answer: 
If by small you mean the ones that use the 14 ounce tanks then yes, that's exactly what I used. It takes a little time to get used to it - you don't want to just heat up a spot at a time but rather wave the torch back and forth over about a 3 inch area and slowly move along the strip. Try to use the white tip of the flame where it is hottest. Once you get the hang of it it goes pretty quickly.

Answer: 
Product cools and is good to go in about 20 minutes or less. Temperature is best when about 50 degrees to make stretching and having a pliable "rope" to apply to cracks.

I used it at 50 degrees during the day. Product description says 32 degrees minimum, and rising. I don't know how much curing goes on. I view curing as a long-term process - days (as with paint) to years (as with concrete). I couldn't use any of the trowel grade fillers at 50 degrees though, as they do cure and require warmer temperatures for days (preferably weeks). This stuff is cooled and "set" in Read More

Answer: 
I do not think so. Seth, this is a great product that can be put down in all temperatures. you are using propane to heat and melt the joint filler so I would say do not use if the ground is frozen. it cures and can be stepped on in 10 to 15 min. I love it and you can add more material to it, if you see the need. I have put it down day and night time. easy to install.

Answer: 
I didn't see anything on the product to address this. But I would say the range would be beyond what is comfortable for you to be out there working. Since you heat it with a torch (literally melting it into the cracks) you should be able to do that even in very cold weather (and obviously in hot weather as well) It melts and becomes almost liquid so it will flow into the crack and all the crevices along Read More

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 112 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product at a great price! I used this to seal the joint of my new driveway to the road seam. I started using this per the directions but the torch was heating and loosening my new asphalt, and I was getting a very narrow seam. I purchased a small stainless steel pot at Walmart and cut the pli-stix rope into 3" pieces and melted it down in the pot then poured it across the seam for wider coverage., did the same at the garage floor and driveway seam. October 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great stuff. It is a bit tedious to use but a great way to provide long term and really good crack sealing. Can stretch it to thin the diameter when necessary. Recommend getting small size as well for the smaller width cracks. Should be stocked year round as heating process used in application can be used year round. October 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Crack filler This stuff works great, this is my second year using it, last year I want to try it out before buying more and filling in the rest of the cracks. October 25, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Careful - special torch fitting needed I found this product harder to melt than I thought. It didn't occur to me when I bought it that you will need a special attachment on the propane torch that allows you direct the flame down on the material without tipping the tank over. I wasn't interested in purchasing anther attachment for my torch because I wouldn't find much use for it outside of melting this material. Eventually I ran out of time and had to switch to the more conventional methods of filling the crack. The driveway looks good. October 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I HAD LOOKED AT THIS PRODUCT SEVERAL TIMES AND DECIDED TO GIVE IT A TRY I WAS SUPER IMPRESSED AND WOULD RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT TO EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! October 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by this stuff works! I tried this a couple years ago as a test to see how it weathered in the New England snow and it stood up well. I have bought it again now because I can't afford a new driveway and have a lot of cracks to fill. It is fairly easy to use. The first time I used a heat gun to melt it but a friend showed me how to use a propane torch and that makes it easier. But I have a steep driveway and two knee replacements so it is a bit tedious for me to get down on the driveway to apply it, but I don't do too badly for a 68 year old woman! And I love doing this kind of work. I am hoping to extend the life of my driveway by using this product. They were all out of the narrow width so I had to get the medium, so it takes a little longer to melt, but still does an excellent job. September 27, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by beats the liquid crack seal Bought this for a number of driveway cracks... some way to big for the liquid stuff. I ended up using it on smaller cracks as well and instead of putting it into the cracks and then heating it with a torch, I would hold a length of it and use the torch to melt the end and let it flow in. That was easier than kneading the material into a smaller size and did a great job of sealing completely. It didn't shrink like the liquid stuff does in even small cracks and water is sealed out of the crack. It takes a while, but if it keeps the water out and prolongs the like of the driveway, that's ok with me. September 6, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GREAT STUFF WORKS This product is great , it fills in larger cracks and when used with the cane torch it melts into the crack quickly/ Do not wast your time using a heat gun it does not do the job October 4, 2016
