Gator Patch is a great all-around asphalt 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.
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.
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 Ryno Crack Cleaning Brushes, Billy Goat Grazer 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.
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.
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.

A second application of Gator Patch will give cosmetic benefits in terms of smooth, consistent appearance and virtually hiding the outline of the cracks in the alligatored areas.
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
