Latex-ite 4.75 Gal. Optimum Driveway Filler Sealer is an asphalt emulsion based sealer designed to beautify and protect your blacktop driveway. Optimum will leave a deep black color while providing strength and flexibility with its reinforced fiber and rubber system. Recommended for all condition blacktop driveways. Helpful Hints before you seal your driveway: 1. Buy an extra pail: Any unused portion CAN be saved for touch-ups (You do not want to run out during the project as you might get color variations) 2. Flip pails overnight prior to doing job (It will be much easier to mix in the morning and will ensure consistency during application). 3. Do the project all at one time without starting and stopping. 4. Check the weather and make sure no rain is forecast and it is at least 55°F at night (A cold driveway will not allow the sealer to cure properly). 5. Check latexite.com for further tips and How to Videos. (Note: If product is not available to order in your area that is due to nighttime temperatures. Product may not cure and/or track in late fall and early spring applications).
Coverage on smooth/previously sealed driveways 400 sq. ft. to 500 sq. ft.
Coverage on rough/porous or unsealed driveways 300 sq. ft. to 400 sq. ft.
Remember: clean your driveway thoroughly so sealer will bond and make sure you do not seal when it is cold outside, it must be at least 55° at night for sealer to properly cure and last
Do not seal in early spring or late fall as the sealer will not last - it will not cure properly and may track

I followed directions and even went above and beyond. I waited 48 hrs prior to first use. I still ended up with visible tire tracks th first time I drove on it. If I can't drive on it, what's the point? coverage is a flat out lie. I have 1000 sf driveway. at advertised coverage that's 2.5-3.5 pails. it took 6.5 pails to get full coverage.

A good quality sealer, be careful to squeegee it off good or it will crack if its too thick. I only gave 4 stars because it seems to get marks on it from tires even 2 weeks later.

I believed I would have to replace my badly cracked driveway. I decided to buy myself some time by trying to fix this. I used trowel patch on bigger cracks/crevices and crack filler for the smaller cracks. Once that had cured, I applied 2 coats of sealant over 2 days. I can't stop looking at my driveway! While it isn't perfect, it looks 100% better than before! I am blown away!

1 COAT & DONE
Woman over 50, 1st time sealing an asphalt driveway. Worked 100% alone. Handheld blowered, washed, brushed, rinsed, patched, turned sealer containers upside-down, waited overnight. Next morning set containers 10 feet apart but got much more coverage than 10 feet on the 1-car wide driveway. Used 2.5 out of 5 containers. Had the material, time, and weather to do a 2nd coat but IT REALLY IS 1 COAT & DONE. No streaking - perfectly smooth uniform matte black finish. I probably saved hundreds of dollars doing it myself - didn't bother getting quotes. So easy, really. Coat the surface with the squeegee is very zen-like and efficient. I loved doing that part the most. Gratifying to watch the surface transform instantly. Used a paint brush from the 99 cent store for edging...better quality & 4 dollars less expensive than hardware store chip brush. I'm looking forward to doing this again next year or maybe in 2. I'm satisfied with this product.

Didn't even last 6 months
I purchased this product early last fall. It was applied mid-late fall, when the temperatures were still in the recommended range and we had a dry spell of no rain in the forecast. It was applied as instructed, and went on very nicely. I was extremely satisfied with the product... AT FIRST. We had a very mild winter, snow only had to be cleared off the driveway 3 times. Once the spring was here, I saw several spots were the sealer had worn away, and I was a little annoyed about that. Now here we are just over 6 months later and the entire driveway has spots where the sealer has eroded away. Absolutely terrible product, and this is supposed to be their high-end sealer? TRASH.

Watercolor? Bad batch? Just my luck!
First off, I’ve sealed my driveway 3x in 10 years using different brands following manufacturer’s instructions and watching videos. This, I applied the end of August 2020, 10 pails, for approx. 2000 sq. ft. 2 coats applied with a squeegee 24 hrs apart. Just after the fall, I noticed fading in several different areas already. I contacted CSR and was told I may have applied the coats too thinly. Accorded the benefit of a doubt, even with 1 coat, how could the seal be erased in just 3 months? CSR was kind enough to offer to replace 5 pails. I would have preferred a refund and try a different brand/type but I will have to settle with it one more time but just use it on a certain area. I’ll be using a brush rather than a squeegee.

Dear Valued Home Depot Customer,
We have reached out to the vendor on your behalf and this is your response:
After reviewing the claim the customer provided, based on our recommended coverage rate, the customer did not apply an adequate amount of sealer for 2-coats of coverage. It was also evident from the photos showing squeegee marks that the sealer was applied incorrectly and without enough sealer. Additionally, the photos indicated a porous surface also requiring that 2-coats be applied properly. Dalton Enterprises, Inc. must stress that in order to get a quality result, it is critical to follow the stated instructions on the package. Any deviation from the instruction will not give you a properly sealed Latexite driveway. Regardless the reason, we offered additional replacement product and customer accepted.
Dalton Enterprises, Inc. is committed to manufacturing a quality product and strive for 100% customer satisfaction.

We blew off the loose dirt, power-washed the virgin blacktop, blew it dry, then applied 2 coats of Latex-ite Optimum. It came out perfect! People wanted to know who I had do it; it blows their minds when I tell "We did it, ourselves!"
