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: 
The material is pliable before and after melting into cracks. Temperature does affect how pliable it is at any given time, but the same is true for asphalt.

Answer: 
I don't see how any paint could stick to this since it damaged the asphalt in the process. Expect to reseal the area after filling the cracks because the heat from the torch can and probably will damage the old driveway sealer.

Answer: 
It probably wouldn't hold paint very well, it's basically a rubber, but if you use the colored asphalt top seal it would work fine as that is designed for this type of material.

Answer: 
Yes. Pli stix is not paintable in its current state but you can apply sand to the Pli Stix while it is still hot so that the sand sticks to the very top layer. The recreation paint will then bond to the textures surface.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 102 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works well Works well for what it is. Kind of pricey for how much you get. Very similar to the commercial grade stuff you can buy in the 50 lb pack (roughly a dollar a pound). This however is in a convenient rope setup that is covered in plastic so there is much less mess and no large heaters etc needed. For a few small cracks its the way to go. August 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pli-stix crack filler I filled some wide cracks (1-1.5 in wide and 1-2 in deep. However I dropped small rocks (mud washed off) into the cracks first. It cuts down on the volume of crack filler used and cuts down the shrinkage when it cools. The deeper cracks I would fill half way and seal, then drop in more rocks and seal again. A few spots would get more sealer the next day depending on the shrinkage. Pouring latex asphalt sealer down the cracks doesn't compare to how this works. Flaking out the old chunks of latex sealer then brushing while vacuuming is important. The torch melts the edges of the asphalt which bonds with the melted pli-stix. The surface is a little soft in the summer sun but not tackie. Time consuming but should last. June 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Does the Job for Wider and Deeper Cracks Works very well. Need to do the prep work as directed but bonding seems strong. Curious to see how it holds up after a Northeastern winter of snow and ice but am very optimistic that this will. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PLI-STIX driveway crack and joint filler Easy to use and it works awesome. Cracks are filled and leveled off. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent for driveway crack repair I have some cracks in my driveway, so I bought the Pli-Stix. Never tried it before so I was skeptical on how it would work. I applied it according to the directions then I sealed over it. I couldn't be happier with the results. July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by just use a had held propane plumbers torch for professional results Use torch to drip and fill any size crack, but wait for cold day so crack contracts to its widest range otherwise filler will split when crack expands. If this happens just reapply torch to remelt product. December 30, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Do not waste your time Very disappointed in the product. It does not fill in deep cracks. it is also difficult to apply to cracks. I had to use a brush torch to melt it. Do not waste your money. July 2, 2016
