Product Details

Introducing the only permanent filler for concrete joints and cracks: 30 ft. Pli-Stix medium gray permanent concrete joint and crack filler. This product originated from federally specified highway jobs but the only difference is you do not need a 200 Gal. melter to apply it. Pli-Stix is permanent because it is applied with heat (a simple hand held torch) and it bonds to the sidewalls of the crack. Cracks open up because they expand and contract with freeze or thaw cycles - but Pli-Stix will expand and contract right along with mother nature. Medium Pli-Stix is designed for joints and cracks 1/2 in. to 1 in. in Dia.
  • For concrete joints and cracks 1/2 in. - 1 in. (12.7 mm - 25.4 mm) in Dia
  • Hot applied, self-leveling, gray, rope-like filler bonds to sidewalls for a permanent seal
  • 30 ft. (9.1 m) of medium gray Pli-Stix
  • Traffic ready in approximately 20 minutes
  • For deep cracks or joints, before you begin fill the crack using closed cell high heat backer rod, sand, or stone dust but leave enough room for product
  • Chlorine resistant - great for pool deck concrete joints
  • No volatile organic compounds
  • Prevent slip, trip and fall accidents

Q:I think I’ll use a heat gun... anyway, does this material cool to a hard or soft substance? Press...

Answer This Question

A:  Soft

by|May 17, 2021

    A:  It hardens and is not flexible. I recommend a long handle garden torch as it will save your knees and back. Power washing did not remove the caulk. I wish that I had purchased the black though as there is a big contrast between the grey and original tar.

    by|Mar 22, 2021

      A:  It is completely hard in temps below around 40-50 degrees. Above that, it is a little pliable (and becomes somewhat more pliable the warmer it gets), but shouldn't come out of the cracks with regular washing. Just hold off on pressure washing when it's warm out so that it stays firmer! 40 degrees shouldn't be too cold for pressure washing, and the stix will stay hard at that temp.

      by|Dec 28, 2021

      A:  It will be hard substance.

      by|Apr 25, 2022

      A:  It is NOT hard when cured! How can people put that. It's soft will take imprints etc. It's supposed to be below the actual surface.

          A:  I melted it with propane torch and dripped it in the crack. It solidifies as it cools.

          by|Dec 25, 2021

          A:  You will need a propane torch to heat the rope. It then spreads into the cracks and seals. Yes it hardens on its own. A very good product.

            A:  I have used this product a couple times. After placing it in the crack you use a torch to heat it up so it melts into the crack. It cools and dries on its own.

              A:  You need a propane torch to apply. It dries by itself. I used it 2 or 3 years ago. It doesn't appear to work any better than whatever I used before.

                A:  Well, you use a propane torch to put it down and then it dries as it cools. Fairly easy, just make sure the cracks you are filling are dry. It will spit like water to hot grease if it's wet.

                  A:  Yes.. The product needs to be applied with a propane torch. The material melts and bonds to the side walls and then cools.

                    A:  Yes, it dries on it’s on. The only things you need are shears to cut it and a torch to melt it. Torch https://www.homedepot.com/p/Flame-King-Propane-Torch-Kit-Heavy-Duty-Weed-Burner-PQ-5000T/308804053?MERCH=REC-_-pip_instock_mobile-_-100341111-_-308804053-_-N

                      A:  Probably. I used it to seal cracks in a concrete driveway. Works great. The only Concern I have is heating the material indoors. A torch is needed.

                      by|Nov 13, 2019

                        A:  I have used several products claiming that it would work to fill cracks in my driveway that looked nice after I filled the cracks but within six months they would dry out and crack and peel out of the cracks so when I saw this product I purchased Pli Stiix but did not work any better than the previous products I had used. Don' waste your money. This product does not work!!!

                            A:  The side walls need to be dry in order for the material to bond properly. Simply preheat surface prior to applying.

                              A:  If you can dry the area completely for the time that you apply it and 15 minutes of hardening time, you will probably be OK. However, moisture at the time of application will prevent the material from melting and filling in as it should.

                              Put this stuff in after filling the cracks with sand. Appeared to work ok thru the fall, but come March, inspection shows the product shrunk and the cracks reappeared.. May try polymeric sand next, covered by sealcoating.

                                  Be sure to use open cell backer rod that can withstand heat so the filler stays level. I installed 22 feet of the stuff in 2 hours including preparation. After scraping out the crack, putting in the backer rod and cutting the Pli-Stix to fit, don't just heat it with the torch like it says. You really need to take the time to unwind the clear plastic that's wrapped around it. Instructions say you don't need to do that. On the first seam I did as the instructions said. When I heated it, the clear wrap shrinks and blobs of the stuff start oozing out every 1/4 inch. They eventually merge and smooth out. On the next seam I unwrapped the clear plastic wrap before heating. It melted much faster and filled in smoother. After it's done you can notice the 2nd seam looks like a better job than the first. I like the final results. It looks professional.

                                  I used this to fill the expansion joints on my 3 year old driveway. The original fiberboard deteriorated. The product works well IF you use enough heat. The first time I used a traditional butane torch head, not a good choice for heat and angle. I purchased a hose type torch and it worked like a charm. I had to fill some spots before I inserted the Pli-Stix, I used foam baker rod, although in sone spots that melted and the Pli-Stix sealed down. No problem though I just put another strip in and melted it. Make sure you order more than you need since you are bound to have "sink-spots". It is winter now and the seams are still holing out the moisture and have not separated. In the past have used self leveling caulk type material for the smaller seams but probably would not again knowing now about this product and how to use it.

                                  The repair of 1 inch gaps in my concrete.
                                  This is the first time using this product. The gap that I was trying to fill was 1 inch in width in most of the places I needed to repair. I had to apply the PLI-Stix several times in order to fill the cracks. First I layed the PLI-stix in the bottom of the crack and melted the material. I added more to it to bring it the the top surface of the concrete. The material was very easy to melt using a hand held propane torch. I just need to see how this material will react with the freezing cycle in this location. One plus, I will be able to melt the material again next year if needed.

                                  Item is exactly what is needed for a long term fix of cracks and gaps in concrete to prevent water from getting in and under the concrete. It take a little time to get the heat application correct so as not to char the material, but once you master that you can move alone and fill the cracks and gaps. Great product.
