Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by fortherelax Good product, but too shiny after heating
This is a good product. We used a heat gun at high temperature. It took a while to do just one strip across the sidewalk but it filled well and did adhere to the sides of the concrete. It takes a lot more product than I thought. I foolishly filled the deeper cracks with backer rod which just melted and turned black long before the Pli-Stix melted. I've not used any other filler product so I can't compare but this is a good one if you have the patience to wait for it to melt. I think using a blow torch would be a better option. It looks shiny after heating it. I would take the advice of several reviewers and sprinkle sand on top of the Pli-Stix before it cools so it matches the concrete better. It looks great that way.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by masondi Would not recommend.
This product was very difficult to melt. (However this same product in black was very easy to work with.)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HouHomeWrecker Pli-Stix Concrete crack seal - very pleased
It was a little bit hard to find the product in the catalog by searching, but once found, it appeared perfect for my situation, The order went very well - delivered to store as requested and on time. Application was fussier than I had anticipated, but the directions were clear enough. As with many new (to me) product applications, the end of the installation looked better than did the beginning. None the less, the product appears to seal very well and be quite tough. I will not know for some time whether or not it has the durability I expect. Overall, I'm pleased with the product and HD's service.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by worndown The repair of 1 inch gaps in my concrete.
This is the first time using this product.
The gap that I was trying to fill was 1 inch in width in most of the places I needed to repair. I had to apply the PLI-Stix several times in order to fill the cracks. First I layed the PLI-stix in the bottom of the crack and melted the material. I added more to it to bring it the the top surface of the concrete. The material was very easy to melt using a hand held propane torch.
I just need to see how this material will react with the freezing cycle in this location.
One plus, I will be able to melt the material again next year if needed.

Works just as advertised only a bit time consuming if you have a large area to cover

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LEI Big disappointment
The only thing that was accurate in the literature was the color of the material!! It required double the amount of rope to fill a 1/2" crack. It states on the package, "MEDIUM SIZE FILLS CRACKS1/2" - 1" WIDE". It does NOT melt evenly and does not harden with a smooth surface.. I ordered material for 155 feet of 1/2 inches of crack. I have completed 9 1/2 feet in 4 hours of uninterrupted work in 80+ degree weather. The cracks have been back filled to a depth of 1/4" with sand prior to laying the material and melting it. Have lots of Propane and time on hand.! The concept is great.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Zeppo Decent seal
Another reviewer said the latex didn't seal well along the crack edges, but I found that it sealed pretty well - or seems to have done (we'll see in a year or two, if weeds start growing). The video said it's easy to seal smaller cracks by cutting apart the latex strips, but after having used this product, I seriously doubt anyone would want to do that. The strips are coated in plastic, which melts, making the strips hard to cut or work with. I wouldn't recommend it for anything other than even seams, between concrete pads, for example, and then only for a relatively narrow seam.
