Citrus King Mastic & Adhesive Remover Information
CITRUS KING Flooring Mastic and Adhesive Remover makes the removal of asbestos mastic, carpet mastic, clean and simple. Does not work on Ceramic Tile Thinset. Users of CITRUS KING Mastic Remover are amazed at the Fresh Citrus Smell and Easy Clean Up properties of this product. Just pop the tile or pull up the carpet. Then pour Citrus King Mastic Remover on the surface. In about an hour you will be amazed at how the mastic turns so soft you could scrap it off with your business card! All that is needed for clean up is a water rinse.
1 gallon will cover from 100 – 250 square feet, although results may vary depending on the age, density, and composition of the mastic being removed. Many of the contractors we do business with budget at 100 square feet per gallon. That way they don’t under estimate the job.
While CITRUS KING works on cutback, emulsion and flooring / carpet adhesives, it is recommended that you test a small area first.
For removing black emulsions or flooring / carpet adhesives:
Step One: Wet the entire adhesive surface with CITRUS KING. This may be done with a sprayer or by mopping CITRUS KING over the surface of the adhesive. Do not over apply CITRUS KING in the first step. Allow CITRUS KING to soak and penetrate for 10-20 minutes to soften the adhesive.
Step Two: Scrape the bulk of the soften adhesive from the floor with a floor scraper (razor scrapers are generally preferred). This will help increase the coverage of CITRUS KING and reduce the amount of liquid generated, making final cleanup easier.
Step Three: If necessary, protect walls, drains, cracks and flooring with something absorbent (rags, kitty-litter, sawdust) to keep liquefied adhesive contained.
Step Four: Reapply CITRUS KING as in step one. Agitate with a short bristled broom or floor scrubber to fully lift and liquefy adhesive residue from the sub-floor. This liquid can be absorbed with an absorbent previously mentioned and picked up for disposal.
Step Five: Wash and rinse the floor thoroughly. Allow to dry. For wood surfaces, follow steps one and two, then apply CITRUS KING to rags and wipe the surface until clean. Clean remaining residue with water. Keep in mind that wood is porous and will soak up liquids, which could affect the performance of new adhesives. Allow additional time to dry.
