      Q:I have about a 1 inch gap between my drive and the street curb. Will this work to fill that in? And when I drive over it, will my tires pick up the black color and stain my drive (just stained it a nice light gray color)?

      A:  Yes, you will need to insert 2-3 pieces and melt together. No the material will not track.

        Q:Can this product be melted in an old stainless steel saucepan using an electric hotplate and then just poured into the cracks? Or can one use a propane grill as a heat source to melt the material in a saucepan?
        by|Oct 25, 2023
        2 Answers
        Answer This Question

        A:  Yes but not recommended as there are many safety concerns with this method of application

        by|Oct 26, 2023

          A:  I used a hotplate and an cheap 8 inch Teflon coated fry plan, Worked great! The whole process was easier and faster. I took safety precautions like setting the hot plate on a concrete surface out side, had paper towels available for clean up.

            Great material to work with
            I had a small gasoline spill on my brand new ( 2 months old) Asphalt driveway! I removed the spill immediately but the gasoline eat through the fresh asphalt in a few spots. Damaged only about half inch deep. I cut this filler into small pieces and heated up with a propane torch in an old stainless steel spoon. I just filled up the little holes where the stones/ asphalt was washed out. Filled them up a little higher the the surface of the driveway. Speed up the cooling with an ice cube, after cooled down I just used a sharp long knife and shaved off to the smooth surface to the driveway! It works great. Now I just have to wait for the harsh Canadian Winter and see how it will be next year in the Spring.

              Not easy to apply but does make for a long lasting if not permanent crack repair. I found that heating the Pli Stix on the end of the filler with a propane torch and dripping it into the crack is the best way to apply. The crack should be cleaned out of any loose debris, pressure washer is probably the best and allowed to dry. It’s smelly but works well and is similar to what is used commercially but on a smaller scale.

              Smart Seal driveway
              Great product for driveway asphalt cracks. Use it every year on my 30 year driveway. I melt it into the cracks rather then follow the directions and it fills cracks better. Great price

              Covers well with driveway sealer after my repairs
              Works better than liquid but tricky to burn in place

              Just like the city roads crews use.
              Great solution for filling cracks. It works just like the stuff the city roads maintenance crews use. I used it to edge a large cold patch in front of my garage. It bonded the edge of the cold patch to the existing asphalt perfectly.

              Quick and easy
              I had some pretty wide cracks in my driveway. Especially where the asphalt met the concrete for the garage and sidewalk area. Bought the Pli-Stix and it was a perfect solution. For the larger, deeper cracks I had to double and triple the amount of "rope" I used. But in the end, it perfectly sealed the cracks and leveled nicely. I used a propane blow torch carefully and it worked fine. In the end, I think I spent at the most, one hour to seal the width of the driveway at the sidewalk and garage ends. I wouldn't recommend this for smaller cracks though (1/8" or less). For smaller cracks, I used the Latex-ite 10.1oz and a caulk gun, then used a small metal drywall knife to smooth the smaller cracks.

                This stuff is THE best! I had 18 feet across my drive with a one inch gap between the concrete garage floor and the asphalt drive. Cleaned it out about and inch deep and then filled it with sand to about a quarter inch from the surface. Doubled over the filler and applied the heat. Melts and fills great. Took about 40 minutes across first time. I wanted to fill a little closer to the surface so I did another pass. About 20 minutes for the second pass. The thing that made this so quick and easy is using a hose extension with a self igniting torch head. So easy. I put the propane canister in a milk crate and bungee corded it to the side. Just slid it along as I progressed. This worked so well I decided to also do a separation at the end of the drive at the sidewalk. Same perfect results. Don’t hesitate. You will love this stuff. Just follow the direction and you will be good to go.

                I love it. Very effective and easy to use, but the only recommendation I would make would be to use a angle grinder with a crack chaser wheel to make uniform grooves in the the driveway as opposed to trying to push the beads into cracks with varying widths and depths. Then top off with trowel patch to level the surface and then seal with a good driveway sealer.

                Have used product before, Have tried many other Joint fillers that are premixed in buckets. They work for 1 year then crack and open up again. This is the same formula they use on roads, only theres is premelted when they apply it. I melt it in the cracks and it stays for years without cracking or opening up. All you need to apply is a propane torch works best for me.This time applied it where sidewalk and driveway meet, water from leader was going in crack . Took about 10 minutes to apply and worked great.
