Latex-ite 4.75 Gal. Ultra Shield Driveway Filler Sealer is an asphalt emulsion based driveway sealer/filler for blacktop. Ultra Shield is an advanced EZ-Gel formula that has an enhanced rubberized system for maximum durability and color retention. Ultra Shield contains ThermaSeal Technology which will speed up cure time and allow for cool weather application - down to 40 degrees F. 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) Allow patch and repairs a minimum of 24 hours to cure. We recommend sealing when the temperature is 55 degrees F but since Ultra Shield contains ThermaSeal technology it will cure in cooler temperatures, down to 40 degrees F. Make sure no rain is in the forecast for at least 36 hours. 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.

Not sure if this rating would drop once I see how it performs. Its only been on two week. It met it standards well coverage and ease of application. We shall see if lasts more than three years ( I did apply two coats) it has a 10 year warranty. Hopefully it will not come off like the last stuff i used

I used latextie Ultrashied 7 yrs ago and it held up very well that is why I wanted to use again. Used approximately 17 buckets, 2 coats. I applied product the same way as before. There were cracks which I patched beforehand.
After it dried the streaks and other marks began to show, I called the company and was told that should have followed the directions. Cool temperatures, Squeegee, ribbon method , I even watched the videos again. I applied the same as I did 7 years ago, but they were right and I was wrong. They finally agreed to settle by SENDING me 10 more Buckets...????? why????? I did not want 10,15,20 or 50 buckets so the eventually agreede to send a check for 10 bucks.
I Follow directions exactly as on the buckets!!!!!

Not what it is cracked up to be
This Latex-ite driveway filler/sealer is a bit thin. There is not way I would call it a "Filler Sealer". I filled the larger cracks prior to applying this sealer. However, it does not do an acceptable job of filling even small cracks . It goes on thin and does not appear to cover the underlying layer. In a few areas where I tried putting it a bit thicker, the product/sealer itself cracked as it was drying. Overall issues:
- Fails to fill even small cracke
- Goes on too thin to cover and look good consistently (yes it was stirred very well)
- Put on thicker (to get coverage) and the product itself cracks
About 4 years ago I put on a less expensive sealer that looked better than the results I obtained from this product.

Not as Claimed
Purchased this in December 2020, One pail provided two coats and extra to the driveway. Looked fabulous when when first done; the very reason it was bought was the appearance after being first applied at other homes. Within 4 1/2 months, material is wearing off and does not provide sufficient surface protection to consider a 2nd time. Pictures tell the story. It comes off where ever you drive and we are cautious about backing and turning front tires to avoid scuffing surface. Bought two pails, will give 2nd away.

Happy so far!
I repaired and filled the cracks first, just applied the second coat of Ultra shield yesterday, and here’s what it looks like today. To this point I’m very satisfied with the results. FYI. I have a long 600 square foot driveway and used only a bucket (4.75 Gal a bucket) and a half for the 2 coats. See pic.

waste of money
After only one year, driveway is crumbling. Not worth the ‘ultra’ label.

False spec's, worthless warranty
I'm a specialty waterproofing contractor for 15 years, and painted houses for a few years before that as a young-un. Not to toot my own horn but I do know almost everything there is to know about surface prep and product application, for a large range of synthetic primers, sealants, and coatings. I applied this in the fall, so temps were cool but were above the specified 40 degree minimum at nights, and of course days. After allowing patches and crack filler to cure all spring and summer, I pressure washed the driveway at 2600 PSI, from inches away until it was spotless, let it dry, blew off leaves and dust, primed a couple oils spots, then coated it. Tried a squeegee but it was leaving puddles in the low spots and filled cracks (Dalton says to fill them just below surface), which absolutely wouldn't have cured, so I switched to a push broom (being pulled) which did a better job at applying it evenly. One coat one day, cured for all of the second day, 2nd coat the 3rd day after blowing it off again. No rain for days, didn't drive on it for a week. It looked great at first, but this spring the coating was flaking and peeling up all over the driveway.
So I emailed Dalton, and filled out the form they sent. Just like everyone else, they offered me half what I purchased "to restore your faith" but denied my warranty claim because I used a broom instead of a squeegee, and said I hadn't prepared the surface properly. They recommended pressure washing - even after I told them from the get-go that I had done so. There is nothing in their warranty contract or instructions stating that a broom voids warranty, and bristles will always give you better surface adhesion than a squeegee or trowel with a fluid application, especially when the surface is rough (if care is taken not to apply too thickly). The instructions do say that using a roller voids warranty, which is a valid concern, they can cause bubbles and won't spread a thick product around well enough to get a thin coat. Dalton's rep also cited having trees around my driveway as a reason for denying the warranty, multiple times. Uh, what?
I don't know if the product would've held up better if I used it at higher temps, although plenty of others seem to have issues with it even then. I do know that I'll likely never find out, because I turned down her slap-in-the-face offer for 1/2 reimbursement and I refuse to spend any more money - ever - with manufacturers who publish misleading info to move product, and deny legitimate warranty claims at the rate these guys seem to do. Please spend your hard-earned money elsewhere.
