Repair Alligator Cracks Easily

This simple alligator patch is an economic solution to heavily cracked asphalt—you no longer have to resort to a complete asphalt overlay or full replacement for multiple cracks. This product also doesn't require any heavy equipment; all you need is a squeegee for application.

How to Apply

Gator patch fixes alligator cracks, shallow holes, and wide cracks

Gator Patch is a "patch", not a crack sealant, and is temperature-sensitive as most asphalt emulsion-based formula products are. This easy repair process allows you to have your repaired areas traffic-ready in 2-4 hours, given favorable conditions. It is important to not use Gator Patch when precipitation is in the forecast, when the asphalt is wet, or when the temperature will be below 50°F.

Simply prepare your asphalt as you would for any other task: remove any dirt and debris from the surface. We recommend using our Asphalt Crack Cleaner Machine, Billy Goat Grazor or Heat Lance to get the best results.

After ensuring the asphalt is clean and dry, you can begin to apply the Gator Patch. Simply mix/stir the patch as per instructions—simply pour some of the product onto the cracked asphalt and spread it in using a squeegee. Remember not to spread the Gator Patch too thick in one coat. It should be spread in multiple layers otherwise, it will not always dry and cure out in a timely manner.

For wide cracks (1/2"-wide or more), make sure the patch is flush with the surface by using a squeegee to remove the excess.

Weather and humidity play a tremendous role in the setup. Always check the constraints and procedures for applying our original Gator Patch.

Protects in All Climates

Once Gator Patch is cured, the patch seals the asphalt against water and chemicals—even in low-lying areas and dips where water collects. It withstands any climate once cured.

We recommend sealcoating the surface 48 hours after the Gator Patch installation for improved durability. This product is compatible with coal tar asphalt sealer and regular asphalt sealer.

Protect from freezing.
After Use: Wash squeegee and all used tools with soap and water. If product has dried on the tools, use a solvent.
To Store: Do not store Gator Patch in direct sunlight. Do not store in temperatures over 100°F. Container must be closed when not using. Keep out of reach from children.

Note: Additional shipping charges may apply for rural areas.

    I followed all the instructions. Waited more than 48 hours to seal the driveway but the gator patch sticks out real bad. My customer was very disappointed. Not sure how to fix it.

    Response from store

    Thanks for your review, Bob. The texture will always be different than that of the pavement because it doesn't have any aggregate in it. Sealcoating after patching not only fixes the 'sore thumb' issue but it also helps to preserve the patch so it lasts longer. Is that an option for your customer?

    Gator Patch has saved our parking lot from total deterioration. Although its adhering capabilites could be better, generally it holds the sections together until the freezing and thawing. It is a good value for the price and works better than other product.

Customer Questions
How long does it take Gator Patch to dry when it's 60°F?
At that temperature, expect it to dry in 3-4 hours. It will continue to cure for another 24-48 hours, after which time you can sealcoat over it to help with durability.
Can I use Gator Patch to cover my whole driveway?
Gator Patch is just a patch, not a resurfacer. It is designed to patch areas with cracks up to 1" deep. You would save money if you use Gator Patch on alligator cracks then sealcoat everywhere else.
Can I put down sealer before gator patch? Do I need to seal the area treated with Gator Patch?
You can put them down in either order; however if you put the Gator Patch down first and then sealcoat over top of it for a more uniform finish.
How much Gator Patch should I apply?
It's like peanut butter on toast: you want a layer that covers pavement and seeps into the cracks, but not so thick that it's all Gator Patch and no pavement. The longer your strokes, the more visually appealing it will be when it dries. Use a hard trowel or a stiff squeegee to smooth it on evenly.
Can I use Gator Patch to fill linear cracks at the same time?
Rubberized Hot Pour Filler is a better solution for this problem because it has better expansion properties due to its higher rubber content. Rubber crack filler will expand and contract with heat and cold; Gator Patch does not have the same flexibility, so using it to fill cracks could allow moisture to seep into your asphalt's foundation.
How deep of a depression can Gator-Patch fill? I have some areas on my drive up to 3/4 inch deep from my car tires, will Gator-Patch fill these ok?
Rubberized Hot Pour Filler is a better solution for this problem because it has better expansion properties due to its higher rubber content. Rubber crack filler will expand and contract with heat and cold; Gator Patch does not have the same flexibility, so using it to fill cracks could allow moisture to seep into your asphalt's foundation.
Do I need a bonding agent?
If your pavement is extremely oxidized (meaning it is no longer black and is instead quite grey) it will need to be primed so that the gator patch sticks properly. If it's just regular black pavement, not too oxidized, then no bonding agent is needed.
How long can I keep unopened Gator Patch? Will it freeze if stored during the winter season?
Usually, you can keep unopened Gator Patch up to 2 years. After that long of a period, you have to mix it thoroughly. Ideally, store the Gator Patch around 50°F and not below 32°F as the product would freeze and would be no good.
Is it possible to apply Gator Patch on a dried new sealer job and then seal it again on top?
Yes, but allow a significant length of time for the fresh gator layer to harden before applying the new sealant.
What causes the Gator Patch to cure slowly over the course of a week?

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.

What is Gator Patch?

Also known as alligator crack fillers, Gator Patch is a mud or mortar-like material that is scooped out and applied with a squeegee onto alligator cracks and holes to repair asphalt pavements.

Once applied, a Gator Patch dries hard like asphalt in a few hours, smoothing out the pavement surface and seals any cracks from water penetration.

Left unattended, alligatored pavements can become a bigger problem down the line, because water seeps into cracked asphalt. When this occurs, cracks and holes widen, posing a danger and becoming liabilities. Compared to the cost of overlaying or completely replacing damaged asphalt, a Gator Patch is much less expensive.

Asphalt alligator crack fillers (Gator Patch) are not to be confused with the Gator Patches used for covering cracks and holes in fiberglass materials such as boats and kayaks.

What are Gator Patch crack fillers used for?

Gator Patch is a great all-around asphalt repair patch that is ready to use right out of the pail.

Get up to 20 square feet of coverage per gallon for alligatored areas, and up to 150 linear feet of 1/2" x 1/2" cracks.

  • Repairs severely decayed asphalt for less than cutting it out and replacing.
  • Smooth, new-like finish.
  • 3 to 4-year lifespan.

How to Apply Gator Patch On Cracked Asphalt (Takes Less Than 4 Hours!)

Gator Patch Crack FillersUsing this simple Gator Patch repair process, you can have your pavement ready for use within 2-4 hours, depending on the weather.

Note that it’s not advisable to use Gator Patch when there’s a possibility of rain, if the asphalt is wet, or if the temperature is forecast to go below 50°F.

Step 1. Remove debris from the asphalt cracks before applying Gator Patch

Clean the asphalt as you would for any other job: remove any dirt and debris from the surface.

We recommend using our Ryno Crack Cleaning Brushes, Billy Goat Grazer or Heat Lance to get the best results.

Once the asphalt is clean and dry, you can start applying the Gator Patch.

Step 2. Prepare the Gator Patch mixture, pour, and spread over the cracked asphalt

Mix and stir the Gator Patch according to the instructions. Then, pour some of the product onto the cracked asphalt and spread it with a squeegee.

  • Protects asphalt pavements from water damage.
  • Can withstand any climate.
  • Protects from freezing.

We recommend sealcoating the surface 48 hours after installing the Gator Patch to improve durability.

This product is compatible with coal tar asphalt sealer and regular asphalt sealer.

Judson Burdon:

What is going on everybody? Judd Burdon here from Asphalt Kingdom. And today we are going to speak about alligator cracks.

Alligator cracks swarm on parking lots, on driveways, on any asphalt pavement surfaces. You see what happens is asphalt gets dry and gray. You get a little crack. Water gets inside, erodes the foundation. Cause further spider webbing of cracks. That then turn into what we call alligator cracks.

Okay. So once you have alligator cracks on a parking lot or driveway surface, water really gets into all those cracks because it's a lot of dense cracks that are all over in one area. And then what happens is the water erodes that foundation causing potholes and depressions that are safety liability issues. And also we'll fast track that driveway or parking lot, any pavement asset, to needing replacement quickly.

Winter's around the corner. It's time to seal up all those alligator cracks.

And we have great news. You can use Gator Patch.

Gator Patch comes in a five gallon pail. It's like a thick mud or mortar. You literally scoop it out onto the pavement surface and you spread it out with a squeegee.

There's a few things that you want to do in order to make sure you have a successful outcome in making sure that you've repaired those alligator cracks.

And we've got Adam Wellman, a seasoned vet in the industry who is going to show us the A to Z to using Gator Patch and repairing alligator cracks properly for the long-term. So that they're sealed up preventing water from getting in.

Adam, take it away.

1:46 - How to Properly Apply Gator Patch on Alligatored Asphalt Pavement (Live Demonstration)

Adam Wellman:

Hey, good afternoon, Judson. Today we're going to be doing a little project. We're going to show you how to properly apply our Gator Patch.

A few things that you're going to need. 16 inch steel wire broom for cleaning out the debris, your 24 inch neoprene squeegee for applying it. And obviously, your pail of Gator Patch.

Let's get at it.

All right Judd, so the first thing that we're going to do is we're going to clean out all the debris and loose stone from the alligator areas. So this is where your 16 inch wire broom comes in handy.

As you can see, it easily cleans out the cracks, removing all of the loose asphalt. Because you don't want any of that in there because all that's going to do is make your bond a little less nice.

And as you can see, it doesn't take much effort to get those alligator areas nice and clean. And the 16 inch wire broom is very helpful with that.

All right. So the next process after we've cleaned all the cracks out with our steel wire broom, you're going to want to blow this area off so that you don't get any loose stone in the mix.

Okay. So now that we've got this whole area prepped and ready to roll, we're going to go ahead and apply our Gator Patch.

Just remember when you're applying a Gator Patch that you want to make sure that you use thin coats, not real heavy coats. And also you're not sealcoating this area. You're actually crack filling this area. So the process of sealcoating isn't the same. So let's get at it.

So the first thing you want to do is open up your Gator Patch and you're going to apply a little bit of the material down over top of this. You don't want to pour a whole lot out to get going. Just a little bit to get started and then we'll work it in.

So now you take your neoprene squeegee and we start to move this around and get it in there good. As you can see, it's going down nice and smooth. That nice thin coat over top of the alligator area. Mastic patches, typically take longer to cure out. So you want to make sure that you're using thin coats. And going back and forth over the top of the material.

Really want to make sure that you get all the cracks filled and all the voids done. Do small areas to begin with. You're not doing this over a whole driveway or a whole parking lot.

So, and also when you're applying this [Gator Patch], there's going to come times where you have to go side to side on this material to thin it out and get it ready. And as you can see, it doesn't matter with this stuff as much as your sealer, because you're going to be sealcoating over top of this anyway.

As you can see, now we're going to go side to side on this material [Gator Patch]. Sometimes you're going to have to do that to work the material into the cracks. So that you get a nice thin coat. As you can see, the Gator Patch is now turning colors. That's because we put it on in a thin coat.

And it's beginning to cure out already. Keep in mind that sometimes you're going to need more than one coat to finish the job. Just make sure that you got all your excess wiped up off the sides where you don't want it. Because it will harden and leave an imperfection in the pavement.

As you can see it's curing out really nice. We're going to prepare to do the second coat here and get everything leveled up and ready for the sealcoat.

Okay, Judd, so we got the first coat applied. And as you can see, just like any other mastic patch that is out there, you get a little bit of shrinkage.

That's we always recommend two thin coats of material so that you can fill the voids. And it'll leave you with a beautiful professional seal job here. So we're going to go ahead and quickly apply the second coat.

We're going to use the same technique, going back and forth over top of this to fill in all the voids.

Now as you can see, it's getting nice and smooth. Most of the imperfections are disappearing. That's why we recommend the second coat.

8:08 - Frequently Asked Questions About Gator Patch

Adam, what kind of coverage rate would you get with this Gator Patch?

The Gator Patch you're getting anywhere from 20 to 50 square foot per gallon, depending on how bad your surface is.

Perfect. What's usually the drying time on the Gator Patch for today?

The drying time depends on the weather obviously. We were able to second coat this in as little as a half hour.

Oh, that's great. That sounds like it saves time and money.

Yes it does. And then you just want to fine tune your edges. Getting any excess off and spread in the mix.

All right, Judd. So we finished up our second coat here. We're going to let this cure out.

As you can see, the second coat really hides those voids.

Clean-up on Gator Patch is simple with just water. Just make sure that you get your tools clean before they dry off. But as you can see, it fills in the voids very nicely.
