Product Description

Latex ite 30' PLI STIX permanent asphalt and concrete crack filler is the only permanent solution to cracks in the marketplace. It is the same product seen on highways and roads; the only difference is you can apply it and do not need a 200 gallon melter to do 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 thaw cycles but PLI STIX will expand and contract right along with mother nature. Fills cracks up to 1 2''. Low VOC's. 30' roll.

This product really works and probably the only one that works well in my experience. However, unless you are only trying to fill cracks the diameter of the product, it does not work too well the way the package suggest which is to warm it up and stretch it to the diameter of your crack. Most cracks on my drive are small and irregular in shape and if you try to warm and stretch the product, it will stick to your hand.

However, the good news is that if you hold the Pli-stix over the crack and use a blow torch to melt the material and let it drip into the crack, filling it up until approximately 1/8" inch from the surface, you will get a very good fix. A regular blow torch used for copper work does not work well as it is not hot enough, the best torch is one that use MAPP gas with an instant on torch head, this torch will allow you just the right amount of heat. If you drip the stuff outside the crack, just heat it up a bit afterwards and wipe the excess off with a paper towel. This way, you will not have the filler on the surface that may soften and stick to your shoes in the hot summer. To get a nice finish, sealcoat the whole drive afterwards and the whole thing will blend in.

One caveat is to avoid heating the asphalt itself too much with the MAPP gas torch, this can melt the asphalt and allow the liquid asphalt to drain away leaving the granular substrate, this will weaken your asphalt drive. The good thing is that you have to really try hard for this to happen, and if it does happen, drip some if the Pli-stix material on it and glue it back together.

Remmeber, I am not an expert and so use common sense and the above suggestion at your own risk.

I've been using this for a couple of days and have tried a propane torch, a heat gun, I've tried cutting it into narrower strips too. A source of heat which is hot enough to melt the stuff quickly is going to make it catch fire. I wonder how carcinogenic the smoke from burning asphalt is. Who has cracks in the driveway which are nice and uniform and the same diameter as the Pli-Stix? Not I. Mine are wide, then narrow, then wide again and bend every which way, unlike the Pli-Stix which are about 1/2" wide and are very stiff. It doesn't cut easily. Using a torch is the best way except for the burning and the fact that propane tanks don't want to feed fuel well when upside down. The flame goes out or else you get a large yellow (cooler) flame. Heat guns are just barely hot enough to make the Pli-Stix melt but not very quickly and the blowing fan in the heat gun tends to make the liquified asphalt blow out of the crack you're trying to get it to fill.
It's obvious when you're done that the finished job will last since the melted asphalt fills the crack from edge to edge and I can't imagine it coming loose. However it's going to take a lot of time and effort to fill all your cracks and many of mine are, while deep, pretty darned narrow while the Pli-Stix are 1/2" wide so it's better suited to filling wide ones. I think it would be nice if they made it only 1/4" wide and thus you could melt it much faster and use it for "normal-size" cracks. It takes a fair bit of work to install, I think.
EDITED review: After more experience with this product I've determined that what you need to use is tin snips. The extra cutting power with the leverage of big tin snips will allow you to cut the stiff, fat crack filler material into 2 thinner strips which will melt more easily and fit into narrower cracks.

My driveway has all sorts of cracks in it, ranging from small to large diameter. I have tried various methods of repairing the cracks, from trowel filler, to asphalt patch repair, to liquid fillers and crack sealers. By far, this method with the melted sealer is the best. All the other methods eventually fail due to weather, wash-out, and tire traffic, but the Pli-Stix works as it appears impervious to the weather, it bonds to the sides of the crack, and it holds up well to tire traffic. It has become my primary means of repairing larger cracks.

It comes in a 30 foot length. All you do is work the material into the crack with fingers or a hammer, and then melt the material with a torch. It melts readily and fills in the crack, bonding and sealing as it melts and sets up.

Forget the liquid crack sealers - they simply will not work as well as this product.

The best product for filling driveway cracks, period.
A couple of advices; Sorry if I am repeating what the other reviewers have already said:

Use MAPP-fueled torch (yellow tanks, not green or blue). The hotter, the better!.

To fill narrow cracks, hold the end of the "stick" over the crack, melt it with the torch, and let the tar drip into the crack.

Wear cotton gloves coated in rubber, and keep a small container of cooking oil handy. If you need to touch semi-melted material, dip your fingers lightly in the oil, and it won't stick to the gloves. Just be careful to not let the oil contaminate the surfaces that the material does need to adhere to.

To fill wide cracks, lay two or three strings next to each other and melt them together. Very small gravel poured on the bottom of the crack 1/3 to 1/2 of the way up, will help to save the material.

Wear a face shield!

Have fun!
