SGR1500 Mastic and Glue Remover makes the removal of asbestos mastic, carpet mastic and ceramic tile mastic clean, simple and safe. No more back-breaking sanding and chiseling work needed. Let SGR1500 do all the work for you.
This is the FIRST PRODUCT to pass both performance and environmental safety tests by the USPS (what does this stand for?) for the removal of mastic containing asbestos! Contractors say that SGR1500 works more efficiently, saves time and helps create a safer restoration site compared to traditional hazardous chemical mastic removers.
SGR1500 Mastic Remover is biodegradable and made with 100% American grown soybeans. The product has NO ODOR and EASY CLEAN-UP. SGR1500 includes SealGreen Oil Cleaner Degreaser Concentrate to complete the job.
- Vinyl Mastic
- Ceramic Mastic
- Tile Mastic
- Carpet Glue
This product is ideal for use in occupied areas like post offices, schools, hospitals and other public places where safety is important.
Pop the tiles or pull up the carpet. Due to variances in surfaces and conditions, always test the product in a small, inconspicuous area before using on the complete project. Once tested, apply SGR1500 Mastic Remover generously on the concrete surface. Spread around with a straw broom, long-handled brush or squeegee using light pressure. When the mastic turns soft, (generally asbestos/black mastics will soften in 1- 2 hours, and vinyl or acrylic mastics will soften in 4-8 hours) you can scrape up the loose mastic or glue (even with your business card). Then wash the floor with SealGreen Oil Cleaner Degreaser that is included. Complete the process by rinsing with water. Do not use on wood surfaces.
One gallon will generally cover between 100-200 square feet. Many customers report getting up to 200 square feet per gallon. Coverage is approximate depending on concrete porosity and material to be removed. A quart of SGR1500 Mastic and Glue Remover covers 30 square feet and a five-gallon pail covers 600 square feet. This is THREE times the coverage of most traditional strippers!
SGR1500 performs better when the floor temperature is between 65 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit. Temperatures below 65 degrees will slow down the effectiveness of the product.
Usage Tips from the Pros:
Use a commercial sprayer or metal watering can to apply in large areas. Protect floor drains and areas where the product would naturally flow on uneven surfaces with sand, Oil-Dri® or kitty litter.
Clean remaining thin residue with SealGreen Oil Cleaner Degreaser 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 the water turns cloudy white, it indicates there is BEAN-E-DOO remaining on the surface. Repeat clean-up steps and retest.
