Concentrated Adhesive Remover


Concentrated Adhesive Remover is a solution for use in weakening the bond between most water-based adhesives and sheetgoods, carpeting and linoleum. Diluted concentrate yields 45-55 sq. ft. New floor covering can be installed once all adhesive and residue has been completely removed and the substrate has been rinsed thoroughly with water and allowed to dry for a minimum of 24 hours.

  • Cost-effective concentrate – dilute before using
  • Penetrating formula – apply on top of floor covering
  • Fast-acting – breaks down adhesive in 1 to 2 hours
