Latex·ite® PLI-STIX® 30 ft. MEDIUM 1/2″ Black Permanent Asphalt Crack Filler is the only PERMANENT solution to cracks on the marketplace. It is the same product seen on highways and roads but the only difference is YOU CAN APPLY IT and don’t need a 200 gallon melter to do it! The Medium Pli-Stix® is designed for cracks 1/2″ to 1″ in diameter.
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!
(Note: PLI-STIX® and CRACK-STIX® are the same product. Pli-Stix® comes in 30ft rolls, while Crack-Stix® comes in longer rolls: 75 ft or 125 ft.)

PLI-STIX® is a simple and clean process. Before applying the product, it is important to thoroughly clean out the crack and remove any loose debris. Rinsing the crack and allowing it to dry will give you the best results.
Now you are ready to install the PLI-STIX®. Simply place the PLI-STIX® into the crack (do not remove the plastic wrap from the PLI-STIX®). The PLI-STIX® must be inside the crack so we recommend pushing the PLI-STIX® into the crack using a screwdriver. (*Note: If the crack is not as wide as the ½" PLI-STIX®, we recommend stretching the PLI-STIX® out...you can leave it in the sun for a while to make it easier to stretch. You can also splice it with a razor blade. You can also use a rubber mallet to help form the strip for the pavement cracks & also helped in the "wedging in" effort). If you have VERY narrow crack you may have to heat a knife with your torch so that it splices the Stix like a butter knife!
Once it's in simply light your torch (we recommend a Bernzomatic hand-held torch) and apply direct flame to the PLI-STIX® until it liquifies - this should take about 20 - 30 seconds. Allow the PLI-STIX® to set up for 20 minutes. PLI-STIX® can be sealed over once properly set up. For best results use CSX Cane TorchTM 900 as this will save you from bending over (it has a crimped end for a nice tight flame). A torch is recommended versus a heat gun but you CAN use a heat gun if your prefer: We recommend an industrial heat gun and temperature must be a minimum of 250 degrees F for it to melt.
Do not apply in wet cracks or where frost, snow or ice is present. Do not apply if the ground temperature is below 40 degrees.
Awesome! I ordered 60 ft of Pli-Stx from your web site on Monday, received it yesterday, awesome ship time. I installed about 20 feet last night. The product is excellent!!!! My patio looks terrific. Filling the joints which had old decayed material in them, with Pli-Stix makes it look new again.
You have a first class company, producing American Made Products, and giving back to the community. Thank you,

Remarkable Product! What a remarkable product Pli Stix is. Had used it on my asphalt driveway to fill many "nuisance" cracks. That was 3 years ago - they are still sealed. I can't say enough about your product.

Remains Flexible! In the past I have used liquid crack fillers however, the liquid fillers harden in one season. PLI-STIX seems to be more resilient. It also remains flexible with temperature change.
