Black Asbestos Mastic Glue Removal

Black asbestos adhesive is can be found in homes, buildings, factories, or warehouses built prior to 1984. It is a thick, asphaltic substance that can seem impossible to remove and identify without further analysis. The safest and most efficient method of removing asbestos mastic glue is by wet grinding. While there are many mastic removal products on the market, some of them can require a toxic cleanup and can have heavy fumes, causing harm to you and our environment. When it comes to working in older buildings, the flooring adhesive most often contains asbestos and should require a professional contractor who understands mastic glue removal. Our team has the efficiency and capacity to diamond grind all evidence of mastic down to bare polished concrete by a combination of wet scraping and grinding.

Tile Adhesive Removal

In addition to black mastic removal, there are other vinyl adhesives or tiles glues that you might require to be removed to the bare concrete. Some of these are tan mastics, thin set, or other contact glues. If the concrete under the tile adhesive is going to be polished, it is important to keep in mind that the grid pattern from the tile will remain visible, we call this ghosting. When removing mastic glue, we use a diamond grinding process to keep VOCs low. We do not use any adhesive solvents due to the toxic fumes that are associated with them.
