Gator Patch Half Pallet (12 pails)
Fix cracks the durable way!
Alligator cracks happen on even the most well-maintained asphalt surface, and Gator Patch is the best way to patch them. Choosing the half pallet means not needing to restock on alligator asphalt patch solution for a while.
Each pail of Gator Patch:
- Fills alligator cracks and shallow holes in a single application
- Covers up to 150 linear feet of cracks or 80-100 sq. ft. for patching
- Provides a like-new finish
- Delays asphalt replacement
Alligator cracks and shallow holes are a problem, especially in high-traffic areas. Unfortunately, shutting down work for asphalt repairs is not always viable. Using Gator Patch, clients can be running again in under six hours with a repair that lasts years.
Each bucket of Gator Patch can cover 150 linear feet of half-inch alligator cracks or up to 80 to 100 sq. ft. for patching. That’s superior coverage for clients and easy application for crews. With very little expertise, every alligator asphalt patch can be a professional-grade patch.
To apply, crews should clean out the alligator cracks as much as possible. Then the Gator Patch requires mixing according to the instructions. This alligator asphalt patch is applied with squeegees instead of a machine to account for its viscosity.
Once applied, Gator Patch needs between two and four hours of dry time in favorable conditions. Ideally, the day is not below 50 degrees Fahrenheit, nor does the forecast call for rain. Crews should cordon the area to prevent accidental traffic during the initial dry time.
Like many products, Gator Patch can be walked on well before it fully cures. Complete bonding and curing take up to 48 hours, depending on the environmental conditions. That’s better than regular crack filler in some situations.

Gator Patch is temperature-sensitive. When it is extremely hot, it reacts slower to cure as the humidity plays a major factor in the curing process. The heat also softens the gator film and tire marks will be present. After it cools down, the Gator Patch will harden.
Even with the hot weather, the Gator Patch will continue to absorb moisture from rain, and humidity for a short period of time.
We do not recommend applying the Gator Patch when there is a chance of rain as the asphalt will be wet and/or the temperature will be below 50°F.
Another factor is if the Gator Patch applied is thicker than the required specifications, it will also contribute to the slow cure time. It should be applied in multiple layers, as needed, to ensure that it dries and cures as quickly as possible.
