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.
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.Read more ›
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.
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!
