Product Details

Just pour and scrape!!! Bean-E-Doo Mastic Remover safely removes asbestos glue, carpet glue, and ceramic tile glue. Simple, clean, and almost odor-free. Just pop the tile or pull up the carpet. Then pour Bean-E-Doo Mastic Remover on the surface. In about an hour, you will be amazed at how the mastic turns so soft you could scrape it off with your business card! Bean-E-Doo is 100% biodegradable, non-toxic, non-caustic, and very economical. Its low evaporative rate allows it to continue to work for up to 24 hours, saving valuable labor dollars. This product will not remove paint, concrete sealers, epoxies, or other topical coatings.


Bean-E-Doo will cover up to 200 sq. ft. per gallon depending on surface conditions and glue thickness. Bean-E-Doo® Mastic Remover should not be used on wood surfaces and might slightly darken a concrete surface.


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.

Step 1: Preparation

  • Cover areas at risk of over-spray with plastic drop cloth.
  • Newly poured concrete must cure for 30 days before application.
  • For existing concrete:
    • Remove paint or previously applied sealer using Soy Gel Stripper.
    • Remove any oils, dirt, debris, or Bean-E-Doo® Mastic Remover using scrub brush and ProClean™ Degreaser.
  • Allow concrete to thoroughly dry before application.

Step 2: Application

Coverage rate is approximately 200 square feet per gallon. Coverage rates may vary based on concrete texture, surface porosity, and application method.

NOTE: Bean-E-Doo® Mastic Remover is sensitive to temperature. Before applying, allow it to acclimate to climate of surface area location. Only apply when surface temperature is between 60°F (16°C) and 95°F (35°C).

Caution: May be harmful if swallowed or ingested. Contact with skin can cause mild irritation. Avoid contact with eyes.

  • Use a straw broom, long-handled brush, or floor squeegee to spread Bean-E-Doo evenly.
  • Allow product to sit until mastics soften.
    • Asbestos/black mastics will soften in two hours.
    • Vinyl or acrylic mastics will soften in eight hours.
  • Once mastic has softened, remove it with a floor scraper.
    • Some mastics are applied thicker than others and require additional coats of Bean-E-Doo® Mastic Remover.
  • Immediately rinse surface with water until surface is clear of residue.
  • After rinsing, apply water to various areas on concrete and scrub with a brush.
    • If water turns cloudy, there is still Bean-E-Doo on surface that must be cleaned.
  • Dry for at least eight hours before applying a stain or sealer.

  • Do not allow Bean-E-Doo® Mastic Remover to dry on surface.
