I used one tube of this successfully, and needed more so I bought 2 more tubes. The second tube exploded out the back of my beloved $30 SolidWork caulk gun. I couldn't believe it. I'm all scratching my head wondering why nothing is coming out - all while it's coming out the back. I will be waiting to hear back from this company on where to ship the invoice for a new SolidWork caulk gun, and they can refund me for the exploded bottle of Latex-ite crack filler and the unopened one I will never use while they are at it. I buy the 10 oz. bottles for convenience sake and because I love using my caulk gun. But this product cancelled out those 2 pleasures.

So far so good. Dried pretty quick in 70 degree weather. It did take a few days to fully cure on one crack that was fairly deep. I probably should have filled it with a piece of rubber crack filling first. It did work and I did end up using the whole tube. I would suggest buying an additional tube as a backup.

Purchased 6 tubes to repair cracks in driveway. The first tube worked for about 25% of the volume, then stopped working. The filler became hard within the tube and the bottom sealer gave way and ruined my caulking gun. I had to finish the project due to the weather, thus I picked up another caulking gun, placed in a new tube with the same exact results. I thus have ruined two very good caulking guns and could not continue sealing the driveway cracks. I also purchase the liquid Latex-Ite to fill in the larger cracks today. It worked fine for the first 2/3 of the bottle, then harden up and stopped flowing completely. This happened to both bottles. Very poor product to say the least.

Would I recommend this product? Not even to my worst enemy. I had really high hopes for this when I applied it last fall. Easy to use and *seems* like the right kind of product to fix cracks. Nice and pliable and able to get into tight spots so that it filled well, it would be great if it lasted. Unfortunately, that's where it fails. This could be a winner in the south where "winter" is 38* for a week or two. Up here in the northeast this stuff is worse than nothing at all. It vaporized in the first cold snap. It doesn't just fail or start to crack itself, it disappears completely, it turns to dust and blows away. I used four tubes in the fall (well, three, one was old and hard when I opened it) and by mid-December there was no evidence that I had even touched my driveway. Pictures show two small cracks in a very small area of driveway, penny for scale. Pic-1 shows a crack that was "repaired" using the Asphalt Driveway Crack and Joint Filler and Pic-2 another using the torch-activated Pli-Stix. It's night and day, while the Plix-Stix repaired area shows some small degradation it has mostly held up pretty well. The cracks that had the caulking tube used on them show no evidence at all that anything had been done. You can not find one single spec of the product remaining anywhere it was applied. It's 100% completely GONE.
Junk. Save your money and more importantly, save your time. I wish I had back all the time I spent applying this garbage, I could have used Play-Doh and gotten better results. Home Depot, please do a better job of vetting your products, especially in regard to climate. A product that works fine in the south might be useless in the northern winters and this is a perfect example. If it can't last a New England winter it shouldn't be in New England stores. If you live in the north, skip this entirely and use the Pli-Stix or even better a combination of Pli-Stix covered with a bit of the Trowel Patch. Even though it's twice as much work that will have a better chance of holding up and not having to be redone the following spring. If you use this stuff youll probably regret it and you'll be using something else a few months later.

When applying this filler to cracks on the asphalt driveway, don't smooth out the bead, or the cracks will be exposed again after the filler dried. Instead, overlay the bead a bit of higher than the surrounding area. See the attached photo.

Must have been from last year's lot
It was so difficult to get out of the tube. Got about half the tube into the crack with great effort and then it was like hitting a brick wall. I thought the tube was empty but it was still half full, just hard as a rock. Not happy!

Great product. Fills crack and spreads easily. Not a lot in one tube.
