How to Fix Alligator Cracks with Gator Patch

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

Gator Patch is an asphalt patching product, 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 asphalt 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, then 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, then pour some of the product onto the cracked asphalt and spread it across the alligatored asphalt 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 wider 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 this asphalt crack 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.

  1. Crackfilling and Sealcoating are really simple



    Everything is fine. It took me a little bit of a learning curve. The videos on the website are really helpful for a starter like me. I realize that Crackfilling and Sealcoating are really simple. You just need to get the right equipment for you. I'm happy with my purchase looking forward to doing more business with you in the future

    It's working okay. The performance is good. All in all satisfied with the purchase.
  5. Product worked great...



    No complaints! The products works great. Very happy with it.
  6. Good Product But Definitely NOT Trowelable
    I bought this to fix up some cracks and shallow depressions in my driveway. It did a great job BUT i had to use a squeegee to apply it. It is far too thin to stay on a trowel
  7. We will continue to use it yearly with hope that the product will be improved to adhere better through development



    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.
