|BEAN-e-doo Mastic Remover|
|Easy to apply and even easier to remove and dispose of (land-fill friendly). 100% biodegradable, non-toxic and non-caustic - makes negative air, or other special equipment unnecessary. Very economical. Low evaporative rate allows it to continue to work for up to 24 hours. Allowing it to do the work saves labor. LESS LABOR = MORE PROFIT! After extensive testing, a U.S. Postal Authority said, "BEANedoo® does the trick, with money savings of almost 300%. Furthermore, it is unusual for only one product to meet all the criteria of the U.S. Postal Service."|
Pour BEAN•e•doo® Mastic Remover, undiluted, directly to the substrate. Use a long handled brush or broom to ensure BEAN•e•doo® at least covers all trowel ridges. Allow BEAN•e•doo® Mastic Remover to sit until mastic softens (generally 45-60 minutes for asbestos mastic. Dwell times for vinyl and acrylic mastics are longer, in some cases up to 4 hours.) After mastic has softened, remove with a long handled scraper or squeegee. Mop surface with water until clean and let dry before applying new mastic or coating. In all cases, care should be taken not to over-saturate the floor by using too much water. Rotary floor machines are not recommended for cleanup unless an area has been tested first. (See BEAN•e•doo® Mastic Remover Tip Sheet for more detailed instructions)
For porous and/or cracked substrates, use a commercial absorbent to help in pick-up of mastic residue. Use a degreasing agent such as Franmar Chemical's EMERGE™ when mopping surface.
Testing surface for residue after floor has been mopped: Apply water to various small areas on the substrate and rub with fingers. If water turns cloudy white, it indicates there is BEAN•e•doo® Mastic Remover remaining on the surface. Remopping with a degreaser is recommended. Then retest.
BEAN•e•doo® Mastic Remover is not recommended for use on wood surfaces. Using BEAN•e•doo® might slightly darken a concrete surface.
