I was a bit dubious initially about how much this product would revive old tarmac but I was pleasantly surprised! It has given my very tatty and pitted tarmac drive an as new finish.
It is very easy to apply with a roller as long as a good amount of prep is done (pressure wash and degrease).
One small downside is the coverage is more like 10m2 than the stated 15m2 but as the tarmac was in such a poor condition to start with this was half expected.

Have used this product previously and had no hesitation in buying again. Makes a tired Tarmac drive look like new. Needs a couple of coats first time and only a one coat touch up after about three years.

My husband uses this at least once a year to keep his drive looking good. It does what it says on the tin, waterproofs and protects tarmac, it has stopped our drive breaking up with frost, it's easy to put on and dries quickly. Cheaper than buying a new drive.

Thompson's Drive Seal is a good product, does exactly what it says on the can. It prolongs the life of a tarmac drive by sealing the surface. It is best to ensure that the tarmac is dry and clean before application, otherwise particles of grit clog the roller and reduce its efficiency. I used a vacuum cleaner. Homebase service was good; product was pre-ordered and arrived when expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by swindonmark cheaper than new tarmac
I have painted by drive with thompsons on alternate years, for the last 6 years. When I moved in I thought we needed a new drive, but a few patch repairs and Thompsons drive seal have saved me a few quid.
Make sure to wet the surface before painting - otherwise it will not spread well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Julie Not what I expected!
The reviews I read on this Drive Seal sounded positive which is why I purchased it but I wouldn't recommend it. It's very streaky and did not cover properly, the grey tarmac underneath still shows through. I also found it very difficult to apply as you have to constantly push down on the roller. It will make your arms and legs ache.

Rated 1 out of 5 by M appalling waste of time and money
I used 5 tins of this, some areas of my drive had 4 coats. Initially it was a bit patchy but I thought it would settle ok. Now it has tracks all over it from the vehicle tyres, just driving over it takes it off. It had 3 days to dry before being driven on so it was not a case of not having enough drying time. Given the amount of time I spent preparing the surface, the time spent actually applying it and the money spent on the product I am very very unhappy but how do you take something back when it's been applied? Total waste of time and money, don't bother.
