Pli-Stix TestimonialsCrack-Stix® Permanent Asphalt / Concrete Crack Filler is the only PERMANENT, patented solution to blacktop or concrete 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! Crack-Stix® contiene 125 pies de Plaste Tapagrietas Asfáltico Permanente de 1/2 pulgada. Esta es la única solución permanente para asfaltar grietas en el mercado. Es el mismo producto visto en carreteras y calles pero la única diferencia es que puede aplicarlo y no necesita un fundidor de 200 galones para hacerlo. Listo para el tráfico 15 minutos.

Crack-Stix® are furnished as a black or gray (NEW!) solid "rope" in 1/2" or 1/4" thickness (Gray offered only in 1/2" currently). It is an elastomeric, self-leveling sealant, which liquefies quickly and can be used in both asphalt and concrete pavements. When properly applied, it combines tenacious adhesive power with extraordinary resiliency to protect against the infiltration of moisture or incompressibles through repeated thermal cycles of expansion and contraction. Crack-Stix® se suministran como un negro o gris (¡NUEVO!) Sólido "cuerda" de 1/2 "ó 1/4" de espesor.

  • No VOC's
  • Prevent slip, trip and fall accidents
  • Ready to use immediately, melt-away wrapper!
  • Save time and purchase either our CSX-900 Cane Torch extender our really speed up application with our NEW walk behind CSX-1000 PRO MELT TORCH!
  • TIP: If you are not using our recommended torch and are using just a handheld torch it can be difficult to keep the torch upright (or it may flame out)…so you may want to find BURNER WAND which will keep the flame running!
  • For deep cracks or joints, before you begin fill the crack using backer rod, sand or stone dust but leave enough room for product

Application:

3 Easy Steps...


Clean it... Take a screwdriver & scratch out all debris from inside the crack, then sweep it clean with a whisk broom. Crack must be dry.

Pack it... uncoil & cut the appropriate size stix & shape/pack into crack with fingertip pressure. Using the screwdriver, press the stix into the crack approximately 1/16" to 1/8" below actual pavement surface level. To achieve a neat overall appearance, do not overfill crack. The material seals In It...Not On It. (*Note: If the crack is not as wide as the 1/2" Crack-Stix®, we recommend stretching the Crack-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!

Melt it... take propane torch & light it. Adjust bright blue part of flame to 1" long. Holding the flame 1-1/2" from the stix, move the flame from side to side in a slow & even motion, heating no more than one foot at a time (melt stick until liquid). Seal cures in 20 minutes & is ready for traffic. For best results use CSX Cane Torch 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. Note: Save time and purchase either our CSX-900 Cane Torch extender our really speed up application with our NEW walk behind CSX-1000 PRO MELT TORCH!

WARNING: Pre-warm asphalt/concrete joint prior to stix application. Cavity must be totally dry to ensure a positive seal. Use extreme caution when heating concrete. ENTRAPPED MOISTURE OR FROST MAY CAUSE CONCRETE TO "POP" OR "SPALL".

  • 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.

  • What if the crack is narrower than the Crack-Stix®? No problem! You can either splice the Crack-Stix® with a razor blade...or if the Crack-Stix® have been outside in the sun and are warm just stretch them! (Double over for wide cracks).
  • Do I need to seal over Crack Stix® or Pli Stix? It is not necessary to go over the product with a sealer product unless it is greater than in 1/8th below the surface. If the Pli-Stix or Crack-Stix® is level with the asphalt surface, for best results I would recommend lightly re-heating the Crack-Stix® or Pli-Stix and broadcasting sand over the surface of the repair. This will give the Crack-Stix® / Pli-Stix a rough texture allowing the sealer to grab onto the product better and last longer
