Apply Bean-E-Doo® Mastic Remover undiluted directly on the concrete surface. Applying too much Bean-E-Doo® does not increase removal time but will contribute to impeding the complete residue removal. Where there are wide cracks or seals, fill with a commercial absorbent like diatomaceous clay, sawdust, or synthetic absorbent, before pouring Bean-E-Doo® on the surface. Use a long-handled brush or broom to ensure Bean-E-Doo® covers all the mastic trowel ridges. Allow Bean-E-Doo® to work until the glue or mastic softens (generally 45 – 60 minutes for asbestos mastic. Allow up to 4 hours for vinyl and acrylic mastics). For best results, cover areas with a plastic sheet or tarp to reduce evaporation. Cover all outdoor applications with plastic.
Use a long-handled scraper or squeegee to remove softened mastic and excess product. Generally, black mastic will dissolve into a liquid the consistency of very old engine oil and can be scraped into a puddle. Fill the puddle with a commercial absorbent, and then shovel into the receptacle. All other mastics tend to lift as more solid than liquid for easy disposal. For best clean-up results, after removing softened mastic, cover floor with a commercial absorbent, sweep up and then mop the floor thoroughly with an organic degreaser and water solution until the Bean-E-Doo residue is removed. Wash with fresh water until cleanser-free. If the rinse water turns cloudy white, the product is still present on the surface. Mopping again with the cleanser solution until the surface is clean. This is a critical step to ensure successful future coloring and sealing.
