Driveway slab dropped one inch below the garage slab and the original expansion joint was almost gone.
Did online search and Sika apeared to be the best liked. Used both the backer rod and self leveling sealant with no problems. Did fifty linear feet of driveway and around concrete patio posts in back yard. I figured I needed four tubes of sealant but used seven. I think difference due to one half inch depth I set the backer rod.

I used the 3/4" backer rod as instructed - even in places so small which shouldn't have needed it. Today was sunny and 60 degrees. The sealant is still not dry to tack after 4.5 hours on my driveway. It's so liquid that in parts it's seeped away leaving the backer rod showing. Wonder what will happen when I have to drive my car over it tomorrow.
I'll stick with DAP masonry caulk. I had a tube of DAP and used that along the house where the patio juts up against the house and that was dry to tack within 30 minutes -- and looks finished and complete.

Works really well!!! Flows good, need some kind of backer rod to contain it. Clean with acetone.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JimG Pretty good stuff
I filled an 18 foot expansion joint in my concrete patio. The gap was pretty wide, so I bought the Sika backer rod, which covers a 3/4 inch gap. The sealant is pretty expensive, but HD stocked the 30 oz tubes, equivalent of 3 regular tubes, and these were priced at less than the price of 2 regulars.
I found this to be a slow laborious process, and I spent hours longer than anticipated.
Please!! don't get this stuff on your hands. Cleanup took a good chunk of the time doing the job.
I bought three large tubes, and used them up. A pretty expensive filler. Overall, it looks good and I don't anticipate having to deal with it again.

The piston inside the caulk tube failed causing caulk to ooze out over the gun and the work surface. The foil was punctured and I did not apply excessive force - it wasn't operator error. A mess - I am furious. Now I have to waste an hour to go get my money back at HD.

Use this to seal expansion joints in concrete (where two pads of concrete meet). Most of the time these gaps are about 1/4"-1/2" wide, and not too deep. Have used this product about 5 times now...Although it says to overfill the joint to allow for shrinkage, i find that under filling it is best, or else you will get some running out of the joint, and is a pain to clean up. So under filling is best. Also, no tooling or smoothing out needed like regular caulking/sealants - just move steadily side to side in joint, working your way back. Its like magic almost - levels itself! Avoid traffic for about 1 day min - remains tacky for a couple days.

Was very easy to use as it flows perfect into joints and left a smooth and very nice color.So much easier that the old mix in a cup stuff .

I have a shuffle board court in my back yard, probably a remnant from the 60's. It had a number of hairline 8' cracks and one crack about 1/2 wide. I tried hydraulic cement, that just cracked again. I used this product on all of the cracks, let it sit in Florida winter weather (70's) for week and painted over the top.
Can't even see the repairs. Now I have a large patio that looks great. Make sure you don't get product on your hands or clothes - buy some cheap plastic spatulas and when the job is done, toss them. Nice product.
