Cold pour crack filler is for both residential and commercial applications. It is a product designed to fill cracks greater than 3/8" to prevent water from destroying the stone base beneath the pavement. Many cold crack fillers are beneficial if applied regularly for residential drives. There are some cold pour commercial products that are recommended for your pavement maintenance project. If cracks are generally large in width and yet there is minimal cracking, then it may make sense to use a high-end elastic cold material which can sometimes meet the same stringent standards of the various hot rubber materials. Here is a brief overview of some different options to consider...
Our Spider Crack is a cold pour, ready-to-use formula that's perfect for residential asphalt driveways to patch cracks up to a 1/2in in width. It can also be applied to small commercial projects especially of asphalt basketball courts, walkways and where you don’t need a hot applied option but want to seal up cracks on a paved surface.
Fat Crack is a heavy-duty option and is for larger cracks up to an inch wide and is both durable and fast-drying, meant for larger cracks in pavement and concrete.
For concrete driveways, sidewalks and parking lots, we offer Gap Crete Concrete Crack Filler. A fantastic product that is non-silicone based.
Other options to consider for cold-applied crack filler are trowelable options like Fat Patch and Sand Gator that are a paste applied to the surface of cracks in asphalt.
If you specifically need a cold-applied crackfiller that's jet fuel resistant, Road Flex is the right solution for airport projects.
Cold applied products are great to use when pavement doesn't require extensive crack filling. It does not require the expensive investment of a heating component and is ready to be used from the container. Cold pour applied crack filler can be used for commercial applications when there is not a high volume of cracks to seal and as a money-saving option.
