Blue Bear Mastic Remover is an odorless, soy based mastic remover, formerly known as Bean-e-doo, and is ideal for use in occupied areas like post offices, schools, hospitals and other public places. Removing vinyl and ceramic mastic is a snap with this user-friendly product. Bean-e-doo was specially designed to remove asbestos mastic, dissolving it into a thick liquid.
It’s so easy and safe to use that Bean-e-doo is the only product to pass both performance and environmental safety tests by the USPS for the removal of asbestos containing mastic. With a flash point over 400 degrees, less than 3% VOC’s, non-toxic, and biodegradable, Blue Bear Mastic Remover can be used without complaint or disruption.
*Not recommended for use on wood floors
Apply 500MR Mastic Remover directly on the concrete surface. Spread 500MR 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 500MR 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. Re-apply if necessary. Do not use on wood surfaces.
Clean remaining thin residue with BLUE BEAR 700DG 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 500MR remaining on the surface. Repeat clean up steps and re-test.
Usage Tips From The Pros:
- Use a commercial sprayer or metal watering can to apply 500MR in large areas.
- Protect floor drains and areas where product would naturally flow on uneven surfaces with sand, Oil-Dri, or kitty liter.
- 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.
One gallon will generally cover between 100-200 sq. ft. Many customers report getting up to 200 sq. ft. per gallon.
