Customer Questions & Answers

What do we use to clean after the glue is removed

Asked by: Louie
I used my carpet shampooer, buy I bet a regular mop with nice hot water would work too.

How long does Formula 747 have to sit on floor before new tile can be laid?

Asked by: Pastor
It starts working right away. Based on a similar product (Youtube video), I decided to wait 4 hours. The video recommended 12 hours. It worked so fast that 4 was sufficient. Do one more scrubbing before removing the product.

Can this product be used on wood?

Asked by: cap1963
I wouldn't use it on wood. The dissolved adhesive would get absorbed into the wood and impede the adhesion of new adhesive or finishes.

Why does Home Depot sell the Sentinel 747, but doesn't sell the Sentinel 810 it calls for to clean up after using the 747??

Asked by: Ron
I was wondering the same thing. Sentinel 810 is available on at least one highly popular Internet vendor (which oddly doesn't sell Sentinel 747.)

Formula 747 Plus 128 oz. Adhesive Remover is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 43.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magic stuff love it This product seems to only work for the black glue cutback you find under the 9 inch tile. But man this stuff is magic. I was working on a 1970's house. And after removing the tiles, I just pored it on the ground and moved it around with the squeegee. You have to leave it alone for 20 minutes and then you just squeeggee the liquid tar into the middle of the room. Put some cat litter down on it, and put it in the box with the trash bag in it. Then mop it twice with some dish washing detergent and let it dry. So much easier then scrapping at it for hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Removes Black Mastic (old adhesive) This was for 100 sqft room I poured the product on, directly to the surface. Staying within a 2x2 area. I waited 20 mins, used my scraper to take off the bulk of the adhesive, collecting it with paper towels (Bounty 8 rolls). In the same 2x2 area, I used the 747 Sentinel in an old Windex bottle and gave a light coat. Then used an old dish brush to work the product into the concrete. Using paper towels to wipe it off. Afterwards, when this black tar mess was wiped up. I went over the concrete with driveway/concrete cleaner and a hand brush. Advice: Use paper towels to collect the mess. Dont wear clothing that you care about. Kitchen gloves are your friends. Its not toxic, just messy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Massive Mastic Mess and the magic Remover that worked great! We had a massive amount of the old cutback/mastic adhesive to remove from our concrete slab floor throughout the living room dining room and hallway.. used to glue down old wood floors 50plus years ago and it was thick everywhere. This remover we poured it on used a metal scrub brush to to rough it up and let it sit for 2 to 6 to 12 hours depending on just how thick it was and how tired we were of scrapping and scrubbing and it was like magic it removed everything a little effort was put out but not nearly what we were doing with other removers. Its a bit messy we had that black tar slurry in lakes and puddles and it was so thick in places I never thought we would get rid of it but a little cat sand or other type of absorbent clay/sand poured on the slurry then stirred until it was not a liquid anymore...all we had to do after that was scooping and dumping! we were finished in no time. It works and it works great it was not instant for us but I believe had an unusually large amount of that stuff on our floors. Hate Cut Back LOVE LOVE this remover! OH and no real odor to the product or at least not one we could smell over the old mastic smell ick!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Good. Would use it again I have a 1960 house. The black mastic underneath the 10x10 squares needed removed. After a couple attempts with the product I found this to be the easiest way to use it. Tape plastic anywhere you want to protect. Have an area to change your shoes and such to keep from tracking anywhere outside the project area. Tools - 747, Big Squeegee (I used one meant for driveway sealant), metal dust pan, kitty litter. Broom- or brush, Mop, Dawn Dishwashing detergent, bucket., Wet/Dry Vac. apply material liberally. Brush it evenly on the floor. I brushed back and forth and in a circular pattern. Let it sit for several hours (I waited four or more). I scrubbed one more time with the broom. Then used the squeegee to form puddles and apply kitty litter. Put that in a waste bucket. Bush any other areas that are stubborn or use a scraper. Continue to collect the material in puddles and remove with the kitty litter. Very quickly after this, apply the bucket of water and dawn solution with the mop and swirl it libberly. Vacuum the water with the shop vac. I used a dehumidifier to aid the drying process. The last step is to rinse again with plain water.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from There Must Be Something Better First, one has to remove the tile. Then, one has to use this product to remove the adhesive. But wait! It's so greasy you have to go back to the store to get something to degrease it after application! Really??? Why isn't this included WITH THE PRODUCT?? Do we have nothing to do but go back and forth to find products to accomplish this? Suppose it does its job. Sort of. You'd be better off to find a better product. You can never really clean this grease up. There is ALWAYS greasy residue.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from keep looking This product does not work on carpet glue. I did what the instructions said waited 20 min then try ed to scrape it up. I add more and waited a hour and try ed to scrape it up. This product does not work. Use boiling hot water or steam with a brush it's a lot faster.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of $20! I'm removing glue down sheet vinyl on my bathroom floor. It softens the backing of the vinyl but doesn't even come close to softening the glue. Wouldn't buy it again. Im better off, which I am using, an angle grinder with course wire wheel.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work It made the carpet pad wet but nothing more. It didn't make a dent in removing the glue that held down the pad.
