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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ricktig TERRIBLE PRODUCT!
Do not attempt to use this product. I applied several tubes over a weeks span. The color from the small tube doesn't match the large tube. One tube left a white streak down the center of the bead and had multiple bubbles in the product. I overfilled a couple areas and it seeped onto the adjacent surface. There is no way to remove excess product, thus ruining the look of the driveway. I would give it zero stars if possible.

Works much better than Quickrete brand. A little thicker, than the others, so a little harder to get out of tube, but well worth it. Quickrete is too runny, and wont stop flowing. First pic is part of my driveway I did with Sika brand, the other two with Quickrete brand. (Home Depot ran out)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Craiger Great quality product, easy to apply, reasonable price
Compared to similar higher viscosity non-self leveling products, this stuff is a breeze to apply. No troweling or smoothing required at all. MUCH less messy to apply. Like some other reviewers have mentioned, to ensure you are getting fresh product which will flow smoothly, gently squeeze the sidewall of the cartridge in the store to be sure it hasn't hardened. The case packaging has a date on it but some individual cartridges do not, so buyer beware.
The per ounce price in these larger cartridges is considerably cheaper than the 10 ounce size. If you need more than about a half-dozen 10 ounce tubes, it's worth buying a larger gun to apply these 29 ouncers.
The manufacturer's instructions say this is to fill horizontal cracks only. I called the Sikaflex tech support phone number and talked to an "expert' about applying this to an expansion joint that sloped about 1/4" per foot and he said it wouldn't work. Since I'd already purchased the product and opened the tube, I decided to experiment anyways. Guess what? It worked just fine. It may sound counter-intuitive, but I started at the high end of the joint and applied 2 or 3 feet at a time but not completely filling flush to the surface. After the caulk started to skin over in 10-15 minutes, I went back to the beginning and applied enough to fill the joint flush with the surface. I kept moving downhill a few feet at a time. It worked out just great - couldn't be happier.
The non-self leveling type sealant is FAR messier to apply and much more difficult to get the surface smooth. This stuff is the way to go for all but very highly sloped cracks.

Summary simple - DO NOT get this on any part of your body. It cannot be removed as per manufacturer. Does not say that on tube. Company says 1-2 weeks with good hygiene it will wear off. Very runny and self leveling means it will run to lowest point and quickly.

This product sells for 25 or more dollars for a tube this size. Home Depot offered it online for about 15.00 and I could pick it up at the store. Great price, great product. I'm going to get more to fill some cracks that have opened up to an inch wide. This will stop seeds from sprouting from those cracks.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by coldfreshwater Surprize ,surprize.It only lasts a year or two.
It looks great at first but after a year or so it shrinks & customer service told me it doesn't shrink but that my drive-way is expanding & contracting--not so. About 14 years ago I used 100% silicone GE cement caulk & it did not shrink but some had to be re-done after 8 yrs.Only problem with that is that it bleeds over the saw cut & shows up on the cement when it rains but no one ever said,"Hey your saw cut caulk is bleeding over onto your cement", so I might have to go back to that for the quarter inch saw cuts & for the inch wide areas like expansion joints I need to use Sika flex cause caulk won"t work there. Yikes, I am just a woman."
