Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 33
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Caddy Product is very inconsistent among different tubes.
While the product is fairly easy to apply and flows/levels nicely, the product varies drastically between different tubes. I purchased 12 - 29 oz tubes (6 grey and 6 tan). 2 tubes of each color were as expected. 3 of each color were marbled when coming out of the tube (gray or tan with white streaks, like it wasn't mixed properly), and 1 tube of each had clear liquid coming out of the tube for the first third of the tube. Looked like oil. Very poor product quality control. I'm hoping the marble won't affect the durability.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jack Moderately good. It lasts and spreads evenly on its own accord.
The product itself is very good. However, the tubing in which it comes needs to be improved. I bought 9 tubes of this sealer, and only six were usable. Three of the tubes had become hardened so that they were un-usable. It seems that the tube that contains the materials somehow leaks the solvent that keeps the sealant soft, and it hardens so that it cannot be applied using the applicator gun. It appears that the un-usable tubes had been mishandled and the area around the dispenser nozzle was beaten up. Improve the packaging so that it doesn't harden prior to use, and I'd give it 5 Stars rating. Otherwise it is only a 3 Star due to packaging and use. (Home Depot, feel free to contact me on this! You owe me for 3 tubes of this stuff)

This is the home building industry standard for sealing flat expansion joints. A few rules MUST be followed to get satisfactory results.
Weather: 60-70 degrees with no rain for 2 days. Product skins over in a matter of hours, but takes at least 48 hours to cure; similar to concrete.
Cracks or joints must be clean: If joints have dirt or dust on the sides, product will adhere to the dust, not the sides of the joint resulting in a poor bond to concrete.
Joints must be level and foam backer rod be used: Product has the consistency of heavy cream. It is a liquid. If the joint is graded (sloped for drainage), the product will run out the lowest point. Backer rod MUST be over sized to fit tight. Any gaps will result in product leaking down past backer rod.
Attention MUST be given to width and depth of the joint. If joint is excessively deep multiple layers should used , curing between layers; use the backer rod for deep joints.
PREPARE BEFORE YOU START: Have a drop cloth, rags, and lacquer thinner handy to clean any drips. Product is famous for caulking gun run on, and will continue to drip from the gun. Product is VERY sticky and hard to remove from skin and concrete flat work.
Follow these common sense rules and the joint will be sealed for 5 - 10 years in northern freeze - thaw climates.

This is great stuff. Had no problems. Only bad thing, the printing on the small tube is NOT human readable characters with an unassisted eye. Should have a peel off, unfolding instruction / limitation sheet with larger font. I had to go online and find the information about this product because even with magnification I could not read the tube.

Looks great and levels great as long as there is no crack in the expansion joint. However, it will not fill an 1/8 inch crack. It's too runny. I purchased a case hoping to do my driveway and 3 car garage but I'll end up using the whole case just on the garage. I'll look into a different manufacture for my driveway.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by WilW Didn't last one winter.
Applied 4 tubes on a 70 degree day in September to driveway and garage slab cracks about 1/4 to 1/3" wide. Fast forward to 5 months later and not even out of winter and the sika material is split down the middle. Will buy something else next time.
It did adhere well to the crack sidewalls and self level well, so not the worst product out there.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DPappas This is WAY COOL
I had cracks in my expansion joints. The cracks were allowing water flow that was expanding the crack and would cause big problems. I wanted a DIY solution and tried this.
It was very cool. The product is thin so it flows a little. Just use a calk gun to apply. It's thin consistency allows it to flow into the crack and finish very smoothly. It is rubbery when done so it should flex with the seasons. Most importantly, it sealed completely allowing no water to go through. Bam.
That said, it really flows. If using it on a small crack make sure it goes into the crack or it will flow like syrup and just make a mess. Due to how thin it is, it will only work on a horizontally crack. It will just run down a wall.
It does come in color and the 'sandstone' looked much better than grey at my house.

If you do not use the full tube relieve pressure and and cap the spout you may think you are done but wait there is more ... more stuff running out the back end that is . Came back in a week to use again and much of the product leaked out , solidified on gun . Had to throw both away .
