Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 29
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 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.

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 .

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 2.0 out of 5.0 by Redtail I was disappointed in this product.
Spend the extra money and get Master Seal SL1. I bought it from a local contractor and it is what they use. It is 10 times better than this stuff.

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ron Great Product
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.
