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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Joe 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hobo 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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DIY1er 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.

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

This crack filler is a great product. Quick and easy to use and does the job as intended. This is my second order for the product so I am very satisfied.

I hate to diminish the value of this product because of my lack of skill with a blow torch. Definitely need a "cane" adaptor for the torch to reach the ground without torching yourself. Product worked well enough once I figured out the best way to apply it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by capercop 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.
