Construction Industry/Black Mastic Removal

Franmar Chemical has a solution for concrete flooring to take the mastic up and then to clean the floor. A soybean product called, BEAN-e-doo Mastic Remover is used. You flood the area after removing the tile with the bean-E-doo let sit and then use a squeegee and collector to remove the liquified mastic and then use Emerge Degreaser (concentrate) to do the final, and final cleaning on the floor.

Their contact info is below.  I was looking up how to remove black asbestos mastic.  I think my floor is wood though.

Xylene, knee pads, lots of rags.  It's hard work and good ventilation is a must but it surely works and works good.

We are a floor covering inspection service and a floor covering specifying service. We inspect all types of floor coverings in every city and town in all 50 States and Canada, for manufacturing, installation, or maintenance related problems. We also specify, so when someone is about to choose a floor covering for a residential or commercial installation, after we find out, from them, the particulars about the installation, we can suggest the proper product, installation method, and maintenance method to provide optimum life of the product. (Note that in your B2B Category, we did not find any heading related to our business, so we just chose the Construction category). So if someone has a problem with the performance, installation, or maintenance of any floor covering, we can give suggestions, without a formal inspection, the possible causes of the prolems.


We have been in manufacturing, installation, and maintenance, of all types of residential and commercial floor coverings, for many years, and for the past 13 years, we just inspect and specify.
