FranMar, BEAN-e-doo

Colors:

Non-toxic, biodegradable mastic and adhesive remover

Franmar BEAN-e-doo effectively removes difficult mastics from concrete subfloors. Unlike most adhesive removers which are full of solvents and harmful chemicals that are dangerous to inhale, BEAN-e-doo is very low-odor and low VOC. It's specially formulated from 100% soybean oil and is completely biodegradable.

It's also easy to apply, remove and dispose of and requires no special equipment. It works fast in only a few hours. On really tough jobs, it's low evaporation rate allows it to work for up to 24 hours. Allow BEAN-e-doo to do the work; it will save you labor and money.

Why we like it

This popular product works very fast and very well. It softens old brittle mastic that's stubborn and difficult to remove. Chipping mastic off a concrete floor is no fun, but this product makes it easy and safe. We've received nothing but good comments about this product for the past 10 years.

Alert: Do not use on wood surfaces

Use Directions from website: Directions: NOTE: BEAN-e-doo Mastic Remover is not recommended for use on wood surfaces. 1. Pour BEAN-e-doo Mastic Remover undiluted directly over the concrete surface. Do not exceed the recommended coverage. Applying too much BEAN-e-doo does not increase removal time but does impede the complete removal of the residue. If there are wide cracks or seals,fill with a commercial absorbent like diatomaceous clay (e.g. OilDry brand), saw dust, or synthetic absorbent, before pouring BEAN-e-doo on the surface. 2. Work with a long handled brush or broom until entire surface is covered. Allow BEAN-e-doo to sit until mastic softens (approx. 45-60 minutes for asbestos mastic. Vinyl or acrylic mastics may be longer up to 4 hours) 3. After mastic has softened remove with a long handle scraper or squeegee. Black mastic will dissolve into a liquid consistency similar to old engine oil and can be scraped into a puddle. Then, fill the puddle with a commerical absorbent and shovel into a receptacle. All other mastics tend to lift off the floor and can be scraped into a pile and picked up with a shovel. After picking up the dissolved or scraped mastic, there may still be a slippery film remaining. 4. Mop surface with water and let dry. You may want to use a degreasing cleaner such as AFM SuperClean or Hydroxi-Pro when mopping surface (see cleaners section of this web page). Testing surface for residues after floor has been mopped: apply water to various small spots on the substrate. If water turns cloudy white, re-mopping using a degreaser is recommended. Then retest.
