One man (or woman) a shovel, perhaps a broom, maybe some gloves, and a hand tamper or other item that will help you obtain compaction (board, etc.)
Possibly. But, as a rule of thumb, EZ Street cold asphalt tends not to stick to clean shovels, clean shoes, etc. But, just exercise caution. Depending on the weather conditions (hotter makes the product more fluid), the liquid component of the EZ Street cold patch will stick more. So, when it doubt, check the shoes at the door.
Generally, our customer consensus is: provided you use a high quality sealer, and wait a minimum of 30 days prior to sealing, you can seal over EZ Street cold patch.
Asphalt comes in 3 colors, black, black, and black. Well, truthfully, asphalt derives its color from the liquid component of the product.
The highest quality ingredients, consistent of a refined gradation of rock and sand, and a proprietary polymer formulation (the secret ingredients).
Hands down (no pun intended), we all use WD40.

We try to do our share with this whole sustainability thing – to the best of our ability. And, while you may find EZ Street cold asphalt in other formats around the world, we generally favor this flexible format because it a) provides the best medium for our product to guaranty shelf life b) it carries well in this format and c) will take the least amount of landfill space up.
Absolutely. In fact, potholes filled with EZ Street cold asphalt that have water in them perform better than one that may have no water, but a lot of dust.
Just try to get as much of the loose debris from the hole – the better you clean it, the better the performance.
Great question, and the answer is “yes”. When filling any pothole or performing a repair of any sort with EZ Street, you’ll want to leave a small “crown” above it – to allow for compaction. How much? That will vary on the size of the hole to begin with, and the amount of secondary compaction (car traffic, etc. received after you patch). The more secondary compaction, the more settling. For a rule of thumb, a quarter inch “crown” seems to work well. The good thing though, is if you do get some additional settlement, you can always come back and put some more right over the top.
A year. But don’t put off the project, ok.
Yes, it will stick to concrete, brick, and a variety of other surfaces.
Not usually, really. The asphalt component of EZ Street cold patch is a viscous liquid, that reacts quite interestingly to changes in temperature. When it’s a scorcher of a summer day out there, and you absolutely want to patch something, and you find that after you use the product, it appears “too loose” you can remedy this by sprinkling a bit of cement dust on the top of the patch.
That’s a good question. In the 12 years we’ve been around, we’ve seen potholes that would house a family of four, with room for a guest house – (aka a lot of bags of EZ Street asphalt patch) to itty bitty tiny “divots” in the pavement that would take only a few ounces So, we’ve provided a simple (EZ) usage chart that will get you pretty close in estimating your project needs.

Ok, who wrote this? We’ve heard reports that there can be over 32,000,000 potholes on the roads at any given time. Yes, that is a lot of potholes.
Asphalt is one of the most complex hydrocarbons known to man? It is obtained through the refinery of crude oil – and is one of the last products to be processed from a barrel of crude, thus rightly earning its description “from the bottom of the barrel”.
You can’t. You’ll have to pay for it at the store.
Ok. Well, our website is visited by virtually every major country in the world (180 +), almost daily. We’ve helped patch potholes in Afghanistan and Iraq. We’ve been featured as a “Must Have” product in Popular Mechanics’ Magazine.
We’ve had reports of EZ Street cold patch being used in Siberia (Russia) where we understand it is always “very” cold.
