Do I need to prime over this product before applying latexite sealer?

Asked by Jtfars May 31, 2021

No. I filled my cracks and sealed right over it with the Latex-ite material and no problems. It's been going strong for four years now.

Never tried or needed to remove the plastic wrap. It burns off quickly as soon and the torch flame hits it.

I have used the materials in low temperatures but if you don’t use a high heat torch you will have issues of heat loss and not melting properly

Yes, you can assume that it does not dissolve in rain. Stuff it in the cracks and then heat it with a propane torch until it melts and flows to fill the crack. Works great on my driveway.

The material will flow when heated to fill whatever crack you have. Stuff it in the gap with an awl and then use your propane torch. It will harden in about 10 minutes. Worked great for my asphalt driveway.

does a heat gun work well to apply this?

Asked by shar June 21, 2020
5
Answers

Yes but it may be harder due to having to bend over so much. I used a 20lb propane tank (from bbq grill) and with a generic extended “weed burner”/torch. The material takes a fair amount of heat to melt as well as heating the surrounding asphalt for a gourd bound

Asked by rAmY May 27, 2020

Answers

This is a solid product in a stick form that melts into and fills the crack in the asphalt. I prefer it to using a latex product when filling holes and cracks. It only runs to fill the crack when I warm it with a torch. The heat from the torch does not "cure" the product but rather makes it fluid to fill in the crack and then quickly hardens again.

I have not bought nor used Latex-ite Crack-stix but I read up on Crack-stix on the company website and I think the Crack-stix is just the bulk pack of of the Pli-stix product. You would need to do a little more research on the latex-ite website.

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.

Home Depot should carry this stuff in their stores, better than the jug of crack filler stuff that doesn’t last. Extra cost of buying a torch to melt this stuff is worth it in the long run as you only have to do it once. Seems very permanent.

This is the best crack filler I have used on my driveway compared to the past 'shallow patch' and liquid ones I have used. So far, so good on the filler holding. This crack filler is essentially a hard tar that you melt into the cracks. With that, you need a torch. I used a MAP gas torch and it worked great as a lot of heat is needed to melt this stuff. Propane would have taken longer. This product is supposed to be jammed in the crack and melted. Most of my cracks were larger than a 1/4" or 1/2" so I just laid the stick on top of the crack and melted it into the crack. I melted it into 90 feet of cracks before my torch ran out of fuel. You will get about 100 feet of stix melted on one standard MAP canister. It cools hard and when in the hot sun it is a little loose but not enough that an imprint can be left in it. Rain washes off most burn marks eventually and sealer can be applied over this. Some tips from my experience: -Power-wash and clear the cracks beforehand. -Fill the deep cracks with sand, up to about 1/8" from the top. Otherwise you will end up melting a lot of these stix into them. -Use MAP gas -Leave the stix in the sun so they become loose and easier to work with -You can heat the stix a little to help form them along the crack -If you are careful enough, you can heat the stix and drag them along smaller cracks to fill them -Work the torch back and forth, dont overheat one area -If you overheat the tar, it will bubble out of the crack -As you heat the stix, you are also heating the driveway so turn the torch off when you get really close to a full melt and let the driveway melt the rest -Use a heat-shield on driveway edges to prevent grass fires -The force of the torch can be used to push the tar into other cracks or along the same. -Use torch to fan any out across asphalt so you dont get lumps -Position yourself upwind of the stix so you don't inhale the fumes.

I have just completed applying three of these boxes. The stuff seems great! When you melt it it will flow into the crack and seal. I think it is ideal to join a crack about 1/2 inch to 1 inch making a water tight seal. If the crack is deep, use sand or gravel to bring it up to about 1 inch depth. Larger is possible but it will use a lot of stuff. Get the large economy size. I made the mistake of using a torch intended for soldering plumbing pipes. Using this took forever to melt the tar. I suggest a torch that puts out much more heat and something that has a hose so you are not handling the bottle. Even better would be a torch with a wand long enough you can do it standing. I do not know if Home Depot sells such a thing. If they don't, I saw several at Harbor Freight.

This stuff is sweet! Have been putting off fixing the gap between my asphalt driveway and the brick border of my stone patio for way to long. Saw positive comments and ratings on Pli-Stix and figured it was time to give it a try. Did some minor mortar patch on the brickwork first. Too impatient (as usual) to let it dry more than overnight. Dug the dirt out of the gap with a screwdriver and until about an inch deep. Then laid in some stone dust to bring it up to around a half inch deep. Tamped that in to make it solid. Then laid the product in the gap. Used standard Bernzomatic handheld torch to melt it in. Worked like a champ. Melted nicely into the interstices of the asphalt and the brick/mortar. The length of the gap was about 7 feet. Took about 30-45 minutes front to back. Couldn't be easier and no clean up whatsoever. Tack free in another 30 minutes. We'll see about durability but for ease of use, gets 5 stars.
