Professionals looking to restore or beautify concrete that's underneath old tiles or carpet held down by mastics or glues need an effective adhesive/mastic remover they can rely on.
Formerly known as: BEAN-e-doo Mastic Remover
•Removes Asbestos/Black Mastic, Vinyl Glue, Ceramic Mastic, Traditional Carpet Adhesives
•Virtually No Odor
•Less Than 3% VOC
•Made with 100% American Grown Soybeans
Ideal for use in occupied areas like post offices, schools, hospitals and other public places where safety is important. 500MR removes newer mastics, layered adhesives and even glues 50+ years old, using the power of soybeans. It's the first product to pass both performance and environmental safety test by the USPS for the removal of mastic containing asbestos!
Contractors find that 500MR works more efficiently, saves time, and helps create a safer restoration site compared to traditional hazardous chemical mastic removers.
Test Area: Due to variances in surfaces and conditions, always test in a small, inconspicuous area before using on complete project.
Apply Mastic & Adhesive Remover directly on the concrete surface. Spread Mastic & Adhesive Remover around with a straw broom, long handled brush or squeegee using light pressure. If applying to mastic with trowel ridges, cover all trowel ridges with product. Allow Mastic & Adhesive Remover to sit until mastic softens. (Generally asbestos/black mastics will soften in 1-2 hours, and vinyl or acrylic mastics will soften in 4-8 hours.) After mastic has softened, remove with a long handled scraper or squeegee. Reapply if necessary.
Clean remaining thin residue with BLUE BEAR Cleaner & Degreaser or water using a scrub brush and/or mop or power washer. Allow surface to dry before further preparations.
After rinsing, apply water to various small areas on the concrete and rub with fingers. If water turns cloudy white, it indicates there is Mastic & Adhesive Remover remaining on the surface. Repeat clean up steps and retest.
Usage Tips from the Pros:
• Use a commercial sprayer or metal watering can to apply Mastic & Adhesive Remover in large areas.
• Protect floor drains and areas where product would natrually flow on uneven surfaces with sand, Oil-Dri®, or kitty litter.
• A rotary floor machine used on a low RPM speed helps during the water/degreaser clean up steps. Use only after scraping up softened mastic.
