Glu Gone

Glu Gone is a yellow carpet glue remover. It should be used wherever yellow carpet glue is an issue. Let it soak and use a razor blade floor scraper to remove the yellow carpet glue from the concrete. Heavier areas may need more than one coat of Glu Gone.

Super Blue

Super Blue is a penetrating concentrated descaler and concrete surface renovator. It removes lime, mortar, scale, rust and more. It is the safe substitute for muriatic acid and is combined with many of our concrete systems!

Moisture Mitigator

Moisture Mitigator is an optional step but is highly recommended for those who have moisture coming up from their concrete. Moisture is one of the many reasons floor coatings fail. Moisture tests are simple, take a plastic sheet and duck tape it to the floor. Leave it on for 24 hours. If there is moisture under the plastic it’s wise to place the mitigator down prior to placing down any epoxy.
