Need a liquid/rubber-like material that will flow into a crack in a cement patio

About 20 years ago, a contractor filled in a crack in my cement patio (crack was about 1/2" wide X 48" long). He filled it with a rubberlike, material, grey in color, that flowed into the crack--and filled it nicely. This process was a quick, very effective fix. For 20+ years this product has kept water out of the crack. ---The last few years, I've noticed that the material is starting to break-up (weather, sun, etc. -- not bad for 20+ yrs). I need to clean-out the crack and fill it with a new product. Since 20 years has past, someone must know of a product that is as good as the original (or possibly better)? Exact name of product or website would be most appreciated. Thanks, Jaes.

If he poured it, then it was probably a latex crack filler. I have used butyl rubber in cracks from a caulking gun. I think the flowable filler would be your best bet. May be in the concrete section of the store, rather than in caulking.

I think the brand you are most likely to find in box stores is Loctite PL S20.

Might also check out Sikaflex 1cSL, a self leveling sealant you would probably only find at a contractor's supply.
