Today, some people employ soy gels to strip paint and varnish from furnishings and even asbestos black mastic from flooring and cutback glues. Removing black mastic floor tiles that may contain asbestos is a hazardous job. Many contractors are turning to products such as Bean E Do, which contains soy gel, a non-toxic agent that boasts powerful stripping functionality. Although removing asbestos black mastic is always a tricky job best left to certified asbestos removal contractors, soy gels make this hazardous job less toxic. Nevertheless, soy gel isn’t as convenient a solution as a product like PerfectPrimer that safely primes and seals asbestos mastic flooring, making the need for messy and potentially dangerous asbestos tile removals unnecessary. If you’ve found that soy gel isn’t the go-to solution you were hoping for to deal with a black mastic floor, turn to PerfectPrimer instead.

What do people use Soy Gel for Asbestos Flooring?

Soy gel was developed as a non-toxic paint and varnish remover. It has other applications too. Many contractors use soy gel to remove black mastic that was used as an adhesive for flooring tiles during the middle of the last century. Products like Bean E Do are made from soy gel and marketed as a black mastic and cutback glue remover. The benefit of using soy gel products is that they are non-toxic unlike traditional products used to remove asbestos black mastic flooring. This means that they are safer to use, which makes them especially popular among contractors who specialize in asbestos flooring tile removal. Even so, removers like this can leave a mess and still disturb asbestos fibers. If you’ve used soy gel to remove your flooring, you may still want to consider a safe sealing product like PerfectPrimer to complete your project.

Soy Gel vs PerfectPrimer for Black Mastic Flooring Tile Removal

Removing asbestos black mastic is always a hazardous job because disturbing asbestos fibers during the removal process with its scraping and grinding can release them into the air. As you may know, asbestos is a deadly material that was used in black mastic adhesives before its disease-causing potential was understood. To safely remove asbestos black mastic flooring tiles, property owners are advised to hire professional contractors who are certified to perform this type of hazardous service. Even so, this is a costly and labor-intensive process. 

Soy gel products like Bean E Do make that removal process a little less difficult because these products contain no toxic or caustic chemicals like other black mastic removers. In this way, they’re a better option for asbestos black mastic removal. Many contractors use them instead of the more toxic options. 

On the other hand, a product such as PerfectPrimer allows customers to paint directly over black mastic floor tiles. Removal is unnecessary. PerfectPrimer primes and seals without the removal of the dangerous asbestos tiles. Once PerfectPrimer or PerfectPaint dry, property owners can install new carpet epoxy as they choose. In addition, if you have tried the soy gel route and found that it didn’t answer, you can still apply PerfectPrimer to finish the job with its seal-in action. 

Using PerfectPrimer or PerfectPaint on Flooring with Soy Gel

If you’ve used soy gel products like Bean E Do to remove your black mastic flooring, you can still apply PerfectPrimer or PerfectPaint to the floor afterward. Soy gel products clean up relatively easily. Once clean, you can apply PerfectPrimer or PerfectPaint. These products are also non-toxic. They are easy and safe to apply to floors that contain black mastics and cutback glues

Not sure which Perfect Primer formula to use with your flooring? Once you’ve removed the black mastic or cutback glue using soy gel, you’ll need to determine what you want the completed floor to look like. Do you intend to leave the surface bare? Do you want to lay carpeting down at some point? When you know how to complete your flooring project, you’ll be able to choose the ideal Perfect Primer solution. 

If you plan to stick flooring material atop your primed floor, opt for PerfectPrimer, it primes and seals the flooring surface with a single coat. If you plan to cover the floor or want it painted, choose PerfectPaint. This product is also non-toxic and can be applied with two coats for a perfect finish. Perfect Primer designed both of these formulas to safely seal asbestos black mastics. In fact, you can avoid the soy gel process altogether with these products. You don’t need to remove harmful cutback glues or black mastics because PerfectPaint and PerfectPrimer lock in the fibers so they no longer pose a threat. 

You can easily purchase PerfectPrimer’s products from the company’s website. PerfectPrimer and PerfectPaint clean up easily with soap and water. Both formulas are EPA approved for sealing asbestos black mastic floor tiles. These products are ideally suited for a wide range of flooring outcomes whether you want to coat your floor with epoxy, vinyl, or carpeting.
