Most expansion joints in the Houston area WERE 1x4 redwood, pressure treated, or perhaps cedar. Anything 7-10 years old is pretty much GONE. The filler pictured above replaces 1x4; does not need a sawcut, or anything fancy.
Having installed this type, and caulk, I can say that for a DIY weekend project, the guy installing this strip will be kickin' back watching football while the guy caulking will still be on his knees squeezing his gun
30+ linear ft per minute to install is not hard to do with the rubber filler.

I'm just using 'caulk' generically to be the tube dispensed goo of your choice. There another whole thread-worth of debate on which goo folks 'should be using'. Most homeowners will probably be using 10 oz tubes, with what they can find at a local store; DAP or maybe Quickrete brand.
I see a lot of 5 and 10 foot repairs, the rest of the driveway untouched, where the homeowner gave it a try, and decided it wasn't going to work for them.
Usually a combination of too much work, too expensive, or requiring more skill than the homeowner has.

Pour Sand into cracks and top off with Brick Paver Sealer, which will cure as hard as a grout joint.

he MAY be talking about neoprene which's generally used on hgwys, bdges, & airports or WAS until silicone came along,,, d s brown is the only source i know for neoprene joint seal - it generally comes in 500' rolls in a box OR wood drums weighing 1,800#,,, you'll also need the lubricant to install it + an install tool - you can rent that from cimline, inc.
